2018 Final Year for Manufacture of M2 Series Tier 3 Engine Truck Mounted Paver in the US and Canada
Currently the M2 and M3 series Truck Mounted pavers are equipped with Cummins diesel engines that comply with U.S. EPA Tier 3 (T3) regulations and have been legal for Bergkamp Inc. to manufacture, sell and distribute under the TPEM provisions because of our status as a low-density manufacturer. Effective December 31, 2018, this exemption expires and this configuration is no longer legal to be manufactured and sold in the U.S. and Canada, although already completed existing inventory of M2 and M3 Series T3 equipment may still be sold. Due to this requirement, we are making the following changes to our M2 and M3 Series Truck Mounted paver products starting January 1, 2019:
- We will no longer offer the M2 Series truck-mounted paver in the U.S. and Canada.
- The M310 with the Tier 3 side engine will no longer be available in the U.S. and Canada.
- Our newest paver, the M310 powered by the truck’s engine (no side engine), will be our truck mounted paver offering in the U.S., Canada and other markets requiring EPA Tier 4 or equal emissions requirements.
Bergkamp will no longer sell newly manufactured M2 Series Truck Mounted Pavers in the United States and Canada, but will continue to support existing M2 Series Pavers for their normal service life, as we have with previous model changes driven by EPA emission tier levels.
A limited number of M2 Tier 3 Truck-Mounted Pavers will be available for delivery in 2018. Contact your territory manager, Tyler Kee, or Director of Contractor Sales, Jimmy Kendrick, to check the availability of any remaining production slots for new 2018 pavers.
We understand that this change in equipment could create some concerns, and so I encourage you to call and speak with any of us here at Bergkamp so that we can understand and discuss your concerns.
