Sometimes when we are traveling along a road, or passing a commercial area, we see heavy equipment at work. These are the machinery and manpower that build our roads, parking lots, and driveways.

There are so many different types of paving equipment. From very heavy to small and light equipment. We will introduce a few of the different types of equipment that paving contractors use to build with.

Milling Machines – It is used to remove large areas of asphalt paving very quickly. They are very big and heavy pieces of equipment with specialized asphalt cutting teeth that effortlessly break the pavement, pick it up, and load on onto a dump truck.

Sweepers – these pieces of equipment are used to sweep the surface of the road or parking lot after it has been milled and prepared for new paving. This is important to ensure an effective bunding to the base.

Dump Trucks – Dump trucks are used to move milled asphalt back to the recycling plant and for delivering new hot asphalt for paving.

Asphalt Pavers – This is a very neat piece of equipment. The new hot asphalt mix is loaded in the front of the machine and it places the right amount of asphalt, levels it, and compacts it.

Compactors or Rollers – This is a familiar machine with a big metal roller. Its main function is to compact the sub-base prior to paving and compact the asphalt mix with its own weight to create a better bond.

These are the major pieces of asphalt paving machines and equipment used by asphalt paving companies. There are many other types of equipment that are a must to ensure a good paving job.
