AP1000 Paver


The Cat  AP1000 asphalt paver is a wheel paver that delivers a high-return on investment with its fast-heating screed system, low fuel consumption, durable components, and easy to use technology. A variety of screed choices offer versatility and provide high-quality results on interstates, highways, airports, and parking lots.

High Return on Investment

  • Exclusive 70 kW integrated generator delivers fast, reliable screed heating and is designed for long life by the same team that developed the D7E electric drive dozer
  • Fast heating screed leads to more daily production, heating time in as little as 15 minutes
  • Excellent turning capability, fast travel leads to increased production
• Exclusive air flow design improves operating conditions for the crew and keeps components cooler for lasting durability

Technology That Works For You

  • Pave Start Assistant saves set-up profiles for repeatable use on future job sites including Grade Control settings, speed, paving width, paving depth, slope, crown, height, and other set-up features
  • A hopper level sensor (option) with temperature indication keeps the operator informed of material height and delivery temperatures, indicators are located in each tractor display
  • Exclusive screed heating system monitors elements for failure conditions and helps eliminate unnecessary replacement
  • Cat® Grade Control option is integrated into the tractor and screed displays for optimized operator efficiency
  • Thermal mapping (option) utilizes an infra-red camera mounted on a fixed-position mast that captures the entire width of the asphalt surface behind the screed. An LCD display mounted near the screed console provides real-time visibility to the surface being paved

Quality Results, Higher Earnings

  • Versatile screed designs deliver excellent ride, density, and mat texture while providing superior adjustment; available with front-mount extenders, or rear-mount extenders
  • Tow-point utilizes exclusive linkage design for optimal screed flotation
  • Exclusive 2-speed proportional control on the screed extenders
  • Cat Grade Control or Basic Grade Control options available

Low Owning and Operating Costs

  • Exclusive Eco-mode and Automatic Engine Speed Control, reduce fuel consumption and lower sound levels for better comfort and communication
  • 4-pump feeder system is designed for high production in Eco-mode, leads to lower fuel consumption
  • Million cycle switches provide reliability
  • Conveyor bed plates and chain guards designed to minimize labor requirements and provide lower cost replacement
  • Heating elements slide-out for easy replacement
  • Machined screed frames simplify screed plate replacement
  • Enhanced hopper flashing with increased memory and temperature resiliency for better performance during truck exchanges

More Comfort

  • Ventilation system draws fumes from the auger chamber and redirects them away from the operator for a more comfortable working environment
  • Dual operating station provide back-up capability and complete control from either side of the machine, each station can swing-out beyond the frame for good all-around visibility
