Which Asphalt Pavers Fit Your Needs and Budget?

When considering the purchase of an asphalt paver, contractors need to take many factors into consideration. The types of projects they will be completing most of the time will be a huge factor in

deciding what machine to use, but you also want to consider being able to handle larger projects. You’ll want to ask yourself, “What type of work do I want to grow into in 3-5 years?”

Buying a machine that will accommodate only small jobs will work well and cost less, but bigger, higher-paying jobs may not be suitable for the equipment. Conversely, if you buy more machine than you would ever use, then you will be paying for it and its requisite larger support equipment for years to come without a good return on investment.

What to Consider When Selecting an Asphalt Paver:

Here’s a breakdown of the types of projects contractors may complete in any given season and machines that would be best suited for your needs:
