For well over 25 years, Carlson has been on the forefront of paving innovation and the leader in highway class screeds. This culmination of years of experience is found in the newest member of the EZ screed family, the EZV front-mounted screed. With a standard paving width of 10’-19.5’, the EZV features most robust extension support system in the industry, giving it unrivaled rigidity at all widths. The screed also enables contractors to operate the screed as a fixed width platform, able to build out to 30 feet. Coupled with state-of-the-art electric heating elements that evenly distribute heat to the screed plate, the EZV represents the pinnacle of paving innovation in giving operators industry leading ease of operation and serviceability while producing exceptional results.
Innovation Comes Standard
The EZV utilizes 50 individual cone adjusters to maximize plate stability and affords the customer indefinite adjustability of the main and extension plates to maximize lifecycle, costs and mat quality. Carlson has also incorporated into the EZV its new spring loaded element holddowns, allowing for adjustment of the screed plate without worrying about crushing the heating elements.
Superior Extension Support
With its single slide track and Carlson unique extension support system that relies on a heavy duty tubular frame, as opposed to the chrome rods, to support the weight, the EZV has the most rigid and robust extension support system in the industry. Combined with the largest adjustable slide track bushing in the industry and fewer wear parts, the EZV prevents flexing of the extensions while decreasing operating costs. While being the most innovative and technologically advanced screed from Carlson, the EZV is user friendly and is based on the same platform that operators have come to know and love for years.
Versatility Like None Other
Setting a new standard in versatility, the EZV is able to function as a fixed width screed through use of a high strength bolt pattern and Carlson’s industry leading heated bolt-ons. With easy adjustment points and advanced electric heating elements, the EZV achieves exceptional mat quality while remaining operator friendly in fixed width applications. Able to build out to 30 feet, contractors are given greater flexibility in having two screed platforms in one with the EZV.
Elevating Crew Comfort
The EZV is built with the operator in mind from dual, easy-to-read, control stations to the wide walkway with optional vibration reduction pad to enable operators to work safely, comfortably and efficiently around the screed. Carlson’s EZV is built with more standard crew comforts than any screed in its class including cup holders, an adjustable level holder, depth rod holder and cleaner, removable aluminum tool box tray, tools holders, the popular Carlson oven and integrated LED lights.
