Caterpillar’s new wheeled AP600D 8-foot paver can tow Cat’s AS2252C or AS3251C screeds, which feature CAN bus electrical systems that interface with the Advisor display on the tractor to simplify diagnostics. The CAN bus reduces the number of wires and connections to improve electrical-system reliability. Cat’s Advisor Monitoring System provides the operator with project planning calculators, start-up checklists, engine operating parameters and other key information including fault codes. Product Link – Cat’s wireless location-and-operating-hour system – is standard. The AP600D is about a 40,000-pound paver with standard paving widths up to 15 feet 6 inches.
