The Vögele Super 2000-3i Tracked Paver is aimed at the North American and Australian markets.  It has a maximum paving width of 6m (8.5m with extensions).


The model comes in a Vögele branded box.  Inside, the model is enclosed between expanded polystyrene trays. 

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

The model is complete with no assembly required, and there is no information describing its many features.  It does include a reprint of a brochure about the real machine which is very good. 


The rubber tracks have a strong tread pattern.  There is a non-functioning spreader auger on the underside.

At the front the hopper belt is represented within the metal casting and the hopper sides are also metal with very sharp graphics.  There are some pivoting but non-functioning rollers for engaging the wheels of a discharging tipper.

The body is a good looking part with deep grilles and smart graphics.  The operator's area has a textured floor, a finely detailed console and the two seats are good with warning triangles on their backs.  The slide out sections have see-through sides.  The canopy above is metal with plastic extensions.   The hand rails are metal and realistically sized.  There is a detailed engine under the various opening panel doors.

The screed has more textured surfaces and high quality handrails. 

There are two highly detailed computer consoles in the middle of the screed and small ones at the ends.


The rubber tracks roll fairly easily and are tensioned by spring-loaded idlers. 

At the front the rollers are on a pivoting arrangement.

The hopper sides can close in to force material onto the belt.

Both operator's seats can be rotated out to provide a better view forwards, and the roof canopy above can be extended to provide shelter.  The console can move on a rail from side to side and it also rotates to face the seat.

The canopy roof and linked exhaust pipe can be lowered to provide a reduced headroom for travelling on a transport vehicle.

There are three opening engine covers which reveal a detailed engine.

The screed can be raised and lowered, and can be extended on both sides for width.  There are fold-down platforms on each side.


This is another very high quality paver model by NZG which is almost all metal.

It has very good paint and graphics.


It is good value.


It is nice to see a paver model of a machine aimed at the US market, and NZG has made an excellent job of it. 


This model was introduced at Bauma 2016.
