Dynapac SD2500WS Paver Video.
Dynapac branded box.
Hopper sides open, screed extended.
Folded up for transport.
Very nice small wheels, but they do not steer.

The Dynapac SD2500WS is a wheeled paver with a hydraulically extendible screed up to 5.1m in width, and a maximum laying width of 9m.  The machine can lay up to 700 tonnes per hour in a thickness up to 300mm.  All six wheels on the paver are driven.


The model comes in a Dynapac branded box and it has some specification details about the real machine.  The model is contained between a pair of polystyrene trays, and the review model had no defects or missing parts.

There is no assembly to do, and no information about the model is supplied.


Underneath there is a large material auger visible, but it is non functioning.  The rubber tyres have a convincing tread pattern and nicely detailed hubs.

The hopper sides are metal as is the material conveyor, although it all looks pretty good, and there is a pivoting bar with rollers to engage the wheels of a discharging tipper truck.

This version of the model has lights on the engine cover and a steering wheel on the control console.

The operator's area is of a good standard with a diamond plated floor and a couple of seats.  The control console is particularly finely detailed and the canopy above is metal.  There are plastic steps leading down to the screed and gas battles stand on either side.

The screed is a mixture of plastic and metal, with more diamond plate surfacing, and there are excellent control consoles on each end.  Most of the hand railing on the model is metal.


The wheels roll smoothly although there is no steering.

For displaying in a transport mode, the hopper sides can close up and can pose at any intermediate position.  The canopy roof also folds down to lower the headroom and a linkage achieves the same with the exhaust pipe.

The whole screed can be raised and lowered using stiff hydraulic cylinders so any height can be set, and the access stairs from the operator's platform pivot to follow the screed.  Each side of the screed can be opened up for width with clever multi stage cylinders.

The whole of the operator's platform slides from side to side to give the operator a better view forward, and the operator's console also slides on a bar and can be set on either side.


This is typical high quality model by NZG which is pleasantly heavy without too much plastic.  The paintwork and graphics are sharp.


The model is good value for money.


NZG has produced some good paver models in the past and this maintains the high standard.  It would have been nice if the smaller wheels had steering and a few more graphics would have added to the realism.  It poses well with other models and is highly recommended.


The model first appeared at the end of 2011 and was shown at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in February 2012.  Two tracked versions of the paver were produced NZG 841 and NZG 8411.
