 Asphalt Pavers, Wheeled

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.
