AP500

Overview

The AP500 asphalt paver and SE47 Series screeds are designed for urban streets, parking lots, rural roads and many other small to intermediate-type applications. This paver and screed combination provides high throughput capability as-well-as application versatility, easy set-up, and a wide paving range.

More Performance and Flexibility
  • Powerful C4.4 engine delivers 110 kW (148 hp) of power that supports increased feeder system capacity as well as hopper inserts for continuous paving
  • Tight 90 degreeturning capability enables the paver to rotate and cover tracks on a return paving pass
  • Standard paving range utilizing the SE47 V screed is 2.4 m - 4.7 m (8' - 15'6") with a maximum width of 6.1 m (20')
Transport Made Easy
  • Machine weight of less than 14.5 mt (32,000 lb) paver and screed combination enables easy transport on a variety of trailer types
  • Length of less than 5.65 m (18' 6") and width of 2.6 m (8' 6") accommodates machine transport without special permits
  • The front-loading angle of 17 degrees and high front bumper clearance reduces the need for additional blocking when loading onto various trailer designs
Exceptional Mobility
  • Wheel undercarriage provides exceptional mobility and fast travel speeds for unmatched maneuverability around the job site
  • Excellent traction is delivered through the 14.00x20 sand-rib or 17.5 R25 radial drive tires

  • Enhanced feeder system with 355 mm (14") diameter augers provides consistent material flow across the screed for efficient flow at both narrow and wide paving widths
More Comfort
  • Ventilation system draws fumes from the auger chamber and redirects them away from the operator for a more comfortable working environment
  • Dual independent consoles provide operation from either side of the machine for optimal visibility to curbs, edges, and transverse joints
  • Dual independent seats swing out 40 degrees beyond the platform for good visibility to curbs and obstacles
Easy Viewing Displays
