The M-6040 hydraulic variable-width slipform paving machine from Miller Formless can be used to construct everything from roads and highways to bridge decks and airport runways.

Key features include a dual-telescoping main frame, a hydraulic variable-width paving mould, and an advanced machine control system. It is capable of extending up to 16.5 feet wide without frame or mould inserts, and bolt-on mould inserts can be used to expand the system to 20 feet wide for larger jobs.

The machine is outfitted with a CAT C 4.4, 176 hp (131 kw) Stage V turbo-charged, air cooled diesel engine, has an operating speed of up to 22 feet per minute, a travel speed of up to 90 feet per minute, and has a width of 8 ft, 4” for transport.

It uses 15 hydraulically driven quick mount vibrators, with individual variable control from the operator’s platform, and has a pan finisher that adjusts with the mainframe width changes. It comes with steel tracks. Poly pads are an available option.
