 Asphalt Pavers, Tracked

Asphalt pavers place hot-mix asphalt and range in size from those that work on golf-cart paths, to those working on interstate highways. Material received in a front hopper is moved rearward by gravity or by conveyors, and augers spread material in front of the screed, a smooth steel plate that sets the asphalt mat's thickness and grade, using heat and vibration to consolidate and finish the material.

The pavers are available with a 225-horsepower Cat C7.1 engine that meets Tier 4-Final emissions regulations

The basic width of the Super 1300-3i asphalt paver is 6 feet 1 inch with hopper wings folded.

The 47,179-pound Super 2100-3i tracked asphalt paver succeeds the Super 2100-2

The new Roadtec RP-2505 asphalt paver is a 174-horsepower (Caterpillar engine), heavy-duty, steel-track, 8-foot machine that uses a high-density, tamper-bar screed.

Powered by a 230-horsepower Cummins engine that complies with Tier 4-Interim emissions standards, the new highway-class Roadtec RP-190e rubber-tire asphalt paver features an anti-segregation material-delivery system, redesigned operator station, fume extraction system and high-capacity hydraulics for the propel system.
