eDaily: Caterpillar AP655D Asphalt Paver

September 28, 2010

Caterpillar’s 40,000-pound AP655D track-mounted paver is an 8 footer with capacity to pave highways, urban and rural streets, county roads, lane additions, industrial sites, overlays, airport runways and other medium to high production-sized paving jobs. A 174-horsepower Cat C6.6 engine drives the Mobil-trac or steel track undercarriage. The deck-mounted cooling system draws air from under the paver and blows it up and forward over the hopper, providing a cool engine compartment and working environment around the paver. Dual, swing-out operator stations with tilting consoles offer four different operating positions, including beyond the machine frame for improved view to the grade, the hopper, and truck drivers’ mirrors.
