Cat AP655D is the first track-type paver sold in the country. The model is unique and has already begun working on the restoration of the road infrastructure of Kosharitza vacation village near the Sunny Beach seaside resort. The 19-tonne machine of Caterpillar was bought by the Bourgas company 'Pat-2004' Ltd. After this project, it will also pave the central boulevards in the city of Bourgas – Ivan Vazov Blvd. and Maria Luiza Blvd.
The AP655D was designed for high-production paving applications where optimum paving quality is required at an efficient pace – including motorways, highways, industrial sites and urban and rural roads. Medium-to-high production is assured regardless of material type, as the AP655D easily handles hot or modified bituminous mix, or aggregate production. The AP655D can be fitted with a Mobil-trac™ undercarriage or a steel track undercarriage. The Mobil-trac undercarriage combines the traction and flotation benefits of a crawler undercarriage with the mobility, speed, and ride characteristics of a wheel paver . The steel track undercarriage incorporates track rollers and a quad rear bogey system in order to provide a smooth ride.
The standard paving range of AP655D is from 2.55 m to 5.00 m. The maximum paving width is 8.00 m. The machine is with dual swing-out operator’s station, high capacity cooling system and an advanced material handling system with independent conveyor and auger control. Its engine is the turbocharged, 6-cylinder diesel Cat C6.6 with ACERT® Technology and provides 129.5 kW (173 hp) of gross power.
The electric lift truck is a formidable working machine. But one area of potential weakness has traditionally been its resistance to water and dirt, which can clog up vulnerable components like motors and brakes, interfere with electrics and help corrode the very body of the truck.These problems have now been very thoroughly addressed, however, with the launch of the new Cat® EP13-20(C)PN(T) range of electric forklifts. Available in lift capacities of 1.3, 1.5 tonnes (three-wheel versions) and 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 tonnes (three and four-wheel), the EP-PN(T) trucks all come as standard with IPx4 splash resistance...
