Asphalt pavers are the key machines in any paving operation. It is important to understand these machines before making a rental decision. First, the paver funnels hot mix asphalt (HMA) to the rear of the machine through the use of flight feeders and augers. The HMA then travels into the screed. A screed is a tool that controls the thickness and width of the HMA before it pours out from the rear of the paver.
Typically, there are two types of asphalt pavers — the tilt hopper and the conveyor-fed paver. The tilt hopper generally works for residential jobs like paving a driveway and handles anything from 100 to 150 tons of asphalt in a workday. This machine uses the natural gravity of the funnel to draw asphalt down from the hopper into the screed.
The conveyor-fed paver draws the asphalt down through a more powerful mechanized conveyor belt. The conveyor also handles a larger amount, moving from 300 to 500 tons per day. This design is ideal for large-scale industrial applications like paving roadways or parking lots.
There is also the option to choose between tracks and wheels for your paver. Tracked pavers are ideal in wet or sandy conditions, awkward angles or anywhere the machine needs high levels of traction. They are often the best for paving wide areas to pull large screeds. Wheeled pavers typically suit applications with long, level stretches like plain highways. These machines offer more speed because they move on wheels, but they provide less traction.
