eDaily: Carlson CP-90 Commercial Asphalt Paver

September 28, 2010

Screed manufacturer Carlson will enter the commercial asphalt paver business sometime in the third quarter of 2008 with what is expected to be about a 19,000-pound machine that robs 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 8-foot screed which is, they say, in keeping with the overbuilt power train, and will be exclusively available on the Carlson paver.
