Ingersoll-RandIn the material-handling system of IR's highway-class pavers — the 38,000-pound 5110 on rubber tracks and the wheel-mounted 5160 and 5170 at 35,000 pounds — the conveyor drives are independent of the auger drives. Each conveyor and auger measures material flow with a sonic sensor and automatically adjusts asphalt flow for precise delivery. Basic screed width is 8 feet, with a maximum paving width of 28 feet. A 185-hp Cummins diesel drives through a hydrostatic transmission.
