Asphalt Preservation Tools system consists of an infrared asphalt heater and an asphalt processor that is compatible with 12 Bobcat skid steer and compact track loaders.
The 3,760-pound AH30 heater is 59 inches long, 84.4 inches high and 111.4 inches wide. Its three infrared heating elements can heat an asphalt repair area as large as 30 square feet to 300 F to soften and recycle the asphalt for the milling process. The 995-pound AP40 processor is 60.4 inches long, 47.7 inches high and 76.9 inches wide. It can mill existing damaged asphalt material up to 45.5 inches wide with cutting depths ranging from 1.5 to 6 inches deep. The unit can process, remix and level the rejuvenated asphalt to the desired depth and prepare it for compaction.
These attachments are designed to perform a three-step asphalt preservation process that seamlessly fuses recycled asphalt with surrounding asphalt to create a bond that does not involve cold joints or repeated treatments, Bobcat says.
