Carlson tracked asphalt paver

Screed manufacturer Carlson will enter the commercial asphalt-paver business with about a 19,000-pound machine that borrows road-paving-capacity material-handling and undercarriage components from parent company Astec's big pavers. A Cat C3 diesel delivers 84 horsepower to a hydrostatic drive and Carlson-designed tracks. Carlson developed a brand new, eletrically heated 8-foot screed which is, they say, in keepingwith the overbuilt power train, and will be exclusively available on the Carlson paver. EZ Mat Screed will pave 4 to 15 feet. V
