CaterpillarModel AP-800D rubber-tire asphalt paver features a new engine — a Cat 3054C turbo diesel that generates 130 horsepower at 2,200 rpm. The paver offers a tractor-mounted generator that provides power to the electric screed and the optional auxiliary power panel. Cat says the AP-800D is driven by a hydrostatic propel system with four speed ranges to give an operator precise propel control to meet travel and pave conditions.
