Caterpillar’s AS2302Caterpillar’s AS2302 Vers-A-Mat screed is a hydraulically extendible model that provides paving widths from 10 to 18 feet. With optional bolt-on extensions, paving width can be extended to 22 feet, or with optional cut-off shoes, paving width can be reduced to 8 feet. According to Caterpillar, the new screed features narrow front-mounted extenders, electrically heated screed plates and newly designed end gates. Optional equipment includes a “power berm” that creates a curb 12 or 18 inches wide with heights that vary to 6 inches. The main screed plate is 18 inches from front to back, and the front extenders measure 9 inches front to back. The narrow dimension of the front extenders, says Cat, allows the extenders to easily draw in material when paving around obstacles.
