BOMAG Introduces Next Generation of CR Series Highway-Class Pavers

BOMAG has introduced the CR 1030 T-2 highway-class paver that features multiple design updates to improve operating efficiency and increase mat quality, the company says.

Available for the 2025 paving season, the CR 1030 T-2 comes with several new features including an independent auger/conveyor system and a new human-machine interface (HMI).

In conjunction with the updated paver, BOMAG also introduced the new Versa 20 front-mount screed to its line.

Aside from some of the technological advances made by the company, BOMAG paving product manager Zach Watson said the update operators were most interested in was the addition of cupholders by the screed controls.

“It’s been something that people have wanted for a very long time on the screeds,” he said. “Cupholders are huge.”

Fortunately for operators, BOMAG added much more than just cupholders to the CR 1030 T-2.

Smooth operation

New for the CR 1030 T-2 is an independent auger/conveyor system with an outboard auger drive system. The independent control system increases material control flow for operators to reduce material waste and end up with a smooth mat.

Via the new system, Watson said operators can control either the auger or the conveyor independently of each other with a 2 or 4 (optional) sensor control system.

“You can run one side conveyor and not run the auger, or run the auger and not run the conveyor,” he said. “This becomes useful to operators when approaching the end of a pass where they can stop the material flow on the conveyor but still feed the augers to maintain a good mat.” 

The new HMI interface provides operators both driving the tractor and the screed a new feel.

Watson said on the operator platform all like functions such as the hopper, screed, and feed controls are grouped to allow the operator quicker identification and adjustment “

The new operation console includes a large 7-inch multi-functional color LCD screen that has touchscreen features for easy access. 

In certain scenarios, operators may be wearing gloves and unable to use the touchscreen.

“That’s where we have a dial on the side of the dashboard so operators can still use the touchscreen by just turning the dial,” Watson said. “That way we are not sacrificing any efficiency and make sure they’re still getting the most out of their paver.” 

In addition to operation functions, the monitor also incorporates fault code visibility to enhance machine serviceability. With alerts appearing on the monitor, issues can be identified and resolved on the jobsite and minimize downtime.

Even with all the updates, there is plenty of familiarity between the CR 1030 T-2 and existing BOMAG machines. 

It retains many of the legacy CR series features, including the swing-out SideView double consoles that provide operators maximum visibility of the jobsite with four positions up to 45 degrees and the Smartrac system that automatically maintains proper track tension to increase track life.
