Comment on this model.

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 is in the colours of the Swedish company Atlas Copco which celebrated its 140 year anniversary in 2013.  It owns the Dynapac brand which it acquired in 2007.


The model comes in an Atlas Copco branded box and it has some specification details about the real machine.  The model is contained between a pair of polystyrene trays. 

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.

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 a high quality model which is pleasantly heavy without too much plastic.  The paintwork and graphics are sharp.


The model is good value for money.


This is another good paver model from NZG.  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 BAUMA Exhibition 2013.  It was originally introduced in Dynapac colours as model #
