BG-245C Asphalt Paver

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

The BG-245C is a high-production track paver designed for interstates, highways, subdivisions, airports and other similar sized projects. 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 new model is suited to all geographic regions that favor track pavers. Typical characteristics of theses 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 to most Caterpillar Dealers, there are two additional authorized dealers in the United States that specialize in Barber-Greene branded paving equipment. Gateway Equipment Corp. of East Syracuse, New York (315) 437-7336 and East Amherst, New York (716) 689-1133 serves western, central and northern New York state. Closner Equipment Company Inc. of San Antonio, Texas (210) 732-2131 and Austin, Texas (512) 272-8200 serves central and southern Texas.
