Track Asphalt Pavers(Non Current)

Caterpillar offers a broad range of Cat® asphalt pavers that compete in the rubber tire, steel track and rubber belted markets. High horsepower and excellent mobility help operators place the mat where they want it. All models are equipped with independent feeder systems designed to reduce segregation and handwork. The ventilation system draws fumes away from the conveyor tunnel as well as the auger chamber and redirects them away from the operator for a more comfortable working environment. Electronic self-diagnostics on the propel and feeder systems maximize maintenance efficiency and reduce machine downtime. Cat screeds feature hydraulic variable-width adjustment and electrically heated screed plates. They are available in rear-extender and front-extender models.

BG-225C Asphalt Paver

The BG-225C is an intermediate sized track paver that is well suited to highways, city streets, county roads, lane additions, industrial sites, parking lots, overlays and other production-sized paving jobs. It is effective on new construction projects because of its steel track undercarriage which 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 BG-225C 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, the versatility of the BG-225C allows it to work on a wide-width highway job one day and a confined parking lot the next. 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.

Caterpillar 3054TA Diesel Engine

The Caterpillar 3054TA is a reliable and durable diesel engine for years of low maintenance operation.

Turbocharged for Top Performance

The Caterpillar 3054TA engine is turbocharged for top performance and efficiency especially at high altitudes with no derating required up to 2134 meters (7,000 feet).


The transverse-mounted engine provides better cooling performance and greater accessibility for service.


Meets EPA/CARB low emissions engine regulations.

Low Sound Emission

Low sound emission complies with major regulatory rules.

Adjustment-free Direct Injection Fuel System

The adjustment-free direct injection fuel system keeps fuel consumption low.

Intake Manifold Heater

The intake manifold heater preheats incoming air for quick cold-weather starting.

Hydrostatic Drive System

The efficient hydraulic drive system eliminates chains and other mechanical linkages between the diesel engine and final drive components.

Closed-loop Hydrostatic Propel System

The closed-loop hydrostatic propel system provides efficient, low-maintenance operation.

Speed Control System

The speed control system maintains preset paving speeds throughout a job.

Propulsion Controller

The propulsion controller provides accurate control of steering and propulsion systems, assuring straight-line tracking.

Decel Pedal

The decel pedal provides foot control of the propel speed, freeing the operator to manage other paving functions.

Dual Path Steering System

The dual path steering system utilizes a steering wheel for simplified operation

Symbols and Functional Word Descriptions

Symbols and functional word descriptions are shown for all controls.

Gauges are Analog Type

Gauges are analog type for quick interpretation.

Warning Lights Illuminate and Horn

Warning lights illuminate and horn alert operator to: 1) high hydraulic oil temperature; 2) low hydraulic oil level; 3) low engine oil pressure; or 4) high engine coolant temperature.

Speed Control System

Speed control system allows the operator to dial a maximum paving speed. Once set, the paver returns to the preset speed when propel lever is in full forward position.

Feeder/Auger Control System

The exclusive feeder/auger control system provides precise mix delivery through the most advanced material handling system.

Left and Right Feeders and Left and Right Augers

Left and right feeders and left and right augers are all controlled independently, eliminating the need for feeder gates.

Feeder Speeds

Once the feeder speeds are set, the ratio of feeder speed to the maximum auger speed is automatically maintained by the material handling controller, regardless of propel rate or paving widths.

Controlling Mix Delivery

To control mix delivery, the operator sets a speed rate for each feeder that will maintain the desired mix level i the left and right auger chambers.

Component Wear

Component wear is reduced because full feeders run a slower speeds.

Potential for Mix Segregation is Minimized

The potential for mix segregation is minimized because head of material remains constant.

Gateless Feeders

Slower running feeders reduce wear and segregation.

Gateless Feeders Always Run Full

Gateless feeders always run full of mix regardless of the speed required to fill the auger chamber.

Drag Pans

Drag pans are constructed with abrasion resistant, heat treated steel.

Feeder Flight Bars

Feeder flight bars are forged steel and pinned to two strands of roller bushed chain.

Changes in Feeder Speed

When changes in feeder speed are needed, delivery of mix to the augers is immediate.

Potential for Segregation Reduced

Potential for segregation is reduced with slower running feeders, especially when working with large stone mixes.

Adjustable Height Auger Assembly

Adjustable height auger assembly promotes mat consistency and minimizes segregation.

Hydraulically Adjusted

The auger assembly can be hydraulically adjusted to 171 mm (6.75").

Working with Larger Stone Mixes

When working with larger stone mixes, segregation can often be eliminated or minimized by raising the augers to allow mix to flow unrestricted under the auger assembly.

Simplifies Loading and Unloading

The ability to raise the auger assembly simplifies loading and unloading from a transport vehicle.

Feeder Design Improves Mix Flow

Tunnel construction helps minimize segregation.

Distance Between Two Feeders Significantly Reduced

The distance between the two feeders is significantly reduced because the auger drive assembly is not part of the tractor.

Narrow Distance Between Feeders Minimizes Segregation

The narrow distance between feeders allows flow from both feeders to blend together easily as they discharge into the auger cavity. This design helps minimize segregation.

Auger Case

The narrow distance between feeders allows flow from both feeders to blend together easily as they discharge into the auger cavity. This design helps minimize segregation.
