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.
Cat® Pavers continue to lead the paving industry and meet your demanding job requirements. Many easy-to-use features and technologies have been developed in order to guide your crew in producing high quality mats time and time again.

Cat® 3054C DINA Engine
The four cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel engine incorporates the proven technology from medium and large bore engines providing quiet performance, high reliability and easy servicing. The engine also meets European EU Stage II emission regulations. The high capacity cooling system provides cool intake air in order to maximize fuel efficiency and minimize emissions.
Hydrostatic Drive System
A closed-loop hydrostatic propel system provides accurate control of propulsion. The propel pump provides optimum displacement enhancing servicing. The optional front wheel assist increases rimpull power providing enhanced traction.
The AP300 includes dual operator’s station with sliding control console. The operator’s stations can be positioned beyond the machine frame for greater visibility when precise paving control is required.
The AP300 is equipped with two large tread drive tyres and four front solid-rubber steering bogie wheels providing optimum ground contact and smooth operation.
The optional generator provides continuous and simple control in paving operations for ground crew usage. This integrated generator supplies simultaneous power to the electric screed heating elements, electric utility power supply and night lighting system providing high reliability.
Material Handling System
The AP300 provides precise mix delivery with minimal operator monitoring. The independent operation of the augers and conveyors reduces component wear and minimizes the potential for mix segregation. Reversible augers and conveyors assist the crew by reducing handwork and clean-up.
The AP300 ensures excellent access to all machine parts requiring scheduled maintenance. Large service doors ensure quick and easy inspection of the main parts. The low transversely mounted engine provides optimum access to the hydraulic pumps. Wiring for the electrical system is numbered and labeled with component identifiers to simplify troubleshooting.
The AP300 is available with the AS3173 hydraulic power extendible asphalt screed, available with variable frequency vibrating system and with LPG or electric heating system. The AS3173 screed lays material to the desired width and depth while providing a smooth finish with initial compaction.
