New Wheel Pavers, Track Pavers, and Screeds From Caterpillar®
We sell paving equipment for a variety of applications, including the following machines:
Wheel pavers: Cat wheel pavers maneuver well on flat surfaces like existing roads where you don't need to consider traction. They also have faster roading speeds than their track counterparts.
Track and Mobil-Trac asphalt pavers: The added traction of a track paver allows it to cross rough terrain and hills. Mobil-Trac asphalt pavers from Caterpillar feature an undercarriage designed for enhanced performance and durability.
Screeds: Our collection of paver screeds includes vibratory and tamper bar options. Vibratory screeds provide higher speeds, while a tamper bar screed creates a higher initial density.
