Atlas Copco F1000T Asphalt Paver

The F1000T asphalt paver features two operating stations that swing out to provide enhanced visibility to the front and rear of the machine, says the company, and the machine’s auger-conveyor feed-control system uses four ultrasonic sensors that measure paving material and automatically adjust conveyors and outboard augers for optimum material flow. The outboard-drive auger system eliminates segregation and delivers a constant head of material, says the company.

The F1000T uses a Tier 4-Final Cummins diesel engine with a hydraulically driven, on-demand cooling fan. According to Atlas Copco, the machine features an “over-sized hydraulic system” that places minimal stress on hydraulic components.

The F1000T uses either a front- or rear-mounted Carlson EZ R-1020 screed with a maximum paving width of 26 feet, and the tractor-mounted 34-kW generator heats the screed. The front extension screed is ideal, says Atlas Copco, for paving parking lots, county roads, and city, while rear-extension screed can take on large projects, including highways, interstates, and airport runways.
