The Commander III's tracks were turned at 35 degree angles to pave inside the circular Finne Tunnel. The floor's profile was slipformed with a 720 millimeter (28.3 in) wide drainage channel.




Two Leica Geosystems' total stations, one to the left and one to the right, track the Commander III as it completes slipforming the concrete floor in the first of two tunnels on the Finne Tunnel project.




Imprinted Barrier In The United States: A unique, four-track, under-mounted barrier package is available for most types of barrier applications. The Commander III four-track with the under-mounted barrier is imprinting a stone pattern on the extruded wall.




V-Ditch In Australia: This contractor is slipforming V-ditch for drainage with a Commander III in Australia.




Rice Fields Irrigation In Turkey: This contractor slipforms a new water canal, with their four-track Commander III, to irrigate rice fields in Kesan, Turkey.




Tight-Clearance Sidewalk: A four-track Commander III with a sidemounted mold slipforms tight-clearance sidewalk in Penrith, New South Wales, Australia.




Imprinted Flat Surface: A roller mounted to the back of the four-track Commander III imprints a cobblestone pattern on the flat surface of the concrete on this project in Florida.




Longitudinal Groove In Cattle Barn Floor: The Commander III paves the floor for a new cattle barn while applying a longitudinal groove. It was also slipformed with integral curb on both sides.




V-Channel In Ireland: The contractor slipformed a v-channel with their Commander III on this drainage system in Ireland.

Slotted Drain: This contractor slipformed 11.8 in. (300 mm) diameter slot drain with their Commander III.




Slope Paving: This contractor slipforms a slope for a smaller canal with their Commander III four-track and a 9500 placing concrete on a project near Phoenix, Arizona.




Paving On Curved Tunnel Walls In The UK: A Commander III, equipped with a 3D stringless guidance system, was used to slipform the floor and two evacuation walkways in the tunnel of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link project connecting London, England, to Europe.

The tracks on this Commander III were built to tilt up to a 35 degree angle to run on the curved walls of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link project.




1:2.4 Slope Project In Japan: This contractor in Japan has completed a slope project with their four-track Commander III. The project required them to slipform a 9.8 ft. (3 m) wide slab at a 1:2.4 slope. The project was part of building a slope on the inside of a breakwater.

Five Different Profiles In France/Spain Tunnel: “Le Perthus” tunnel is the link between Perpignan in France and Figueras in Spain in the French/Spanish border town of Perthus. Two 28.5 ft. (8.7 m) diameter tunnels, each 5.2 miles (8.4 km) long, is part of the overall link connecting the two countries. The proejct was paved with a GOMACO Commander III.

The Commander III on the Le Perthus tunnel was equipped with a Leica guidance system, which eliminated the need for stringline in the tunnel’s tight paving conditions.







High-Drive Tracks For Tight-Clearance Paving: GOMACO’s optional high-drive tracks are ideal for minimum-clearance situations that sometimes exist when adding lanes to ramps and highways or replacing streets in residential areas. The 11 in. (279 mm) wide track has a clearance height of 21.85 in. (555 mm) to the bottom of the track motor. The height of the motor allows clearance on the slab side of the track.
