Caterpillar Inc. has added the AP600D Asphalt Paver (Circle 912) to its Paving Products machine family. The AP600D utilizes a wheel undercarriage that can be equipped with front-wheel assist or all-wheel drive options. It features a Cat C6.6 engine with Acert technology that is U.S. EPA Tier III emissions compliant, dual operating stations with Advisor display, tilting consoles, a high-capacity cooling system, a generator system and a material handling system with independent conveyor and auger controls. Another standard feature is the Product Link System. This system provides automatic machine location and hour updates that can be used to schedule service intervals, ensuring maximum uptime and minimal repair costs.
The AP600D can be fitted to the AS2252C screed or AS3251C screed. These screeds feature CANbus electrical systems that incorporate an interface with the Advisor display on the tractor to simplify diagnostics. The CANbus system utilizes less wiring for a more reliable electrical system.
The AS2252C screed features narrow front-mounted extenders that provide even material flow and reduced handwork when paving around obstacles. These screeds excel in commercial applications.
The AS3251C features rear-mounted extenders and utilizes heavy-duty support tubes that stabilize the extenders, providing even material flow for high-quality results on highways and streets as well as commercial applications.
