AP-650B Asphalt Paver

Posted By admin On December 11, 2007 @ 12:00 am In Boomerang | No Comments

The AP-650B is an intermediate sized paver that is well suited to highways, city streets, county roads, lane additions, industrial sites, parking lots, overlays and other production-sized paving jobs. Also, it is effective on new construction projects because of its track undercarriage. The steel track undercarriage uses field-proven Cat D3 Track-type Tractor technology. This method of propulsion offers advantages when operating on unstable bases or on steep grades. Excellent tractive effort, low ground pressure and enhanced flotation are some of the advantages. The AP650B is suited to all geographic regions that favor track pavers. Typical characteristics of these areas include sandy, loose soil; sub-base or base materials that do not permit good traction by wheel pavers; and areas with significant grades. In addition, the versatility of the AP-650B allows it to work on a wide-width highway job one day and a confined parking lot the next.
