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-245C Asphalt Paver

The BG-245C is a high-production track paver designed for interstates, highways, subdivisions, airports and other similar sized projects. It is effective on new construction projects because of its track undercarriage. The steel track undercarriage 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 new model 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 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.

Exclusive Feeder/Auger Control System

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

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.

Changes in Feeder Speed

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

Drag Pans

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

Feeder Flight Bars

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

Potential for Segregation Reduced

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

Adjustable Height Auger Assembly

The adjustable height auger assembly promotes mat consistency and minimizes segregation.

Hydraulically Adjusted

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

Working with Larger Stone Mixes

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

Raising the Auger Assembly

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

Dual Lift Cylinders

Dual lift cylinders provide a stable position for the augers, enhancing mat quality.

Feeder Design Improves Mix Flow

Tunnel construction helps minimize segregation.

Distance Between Feeders is 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

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 is not Attached

Since the auger case is not attached to the tractor, voids under the chain case are eliminated.
