Bomag 4413 Rules Road Repair

Small paving projects get new gear.

This roughly what we have, a 1992 Leeboy 8000

Our old paver is pretty much worn out. Asphalt paving tends to do that. The new one will allow PW to do many “little” paving projects on their own, ordering up truckloads of asphalt as needed, and capable of putting down a smooth fresh layer of road where pothole filling just won’t cut it.

Bomag’s 4413 self-propelled asphalt paver is powered by a 60-horsepower, Cummins A-series water-cooled diesel engine that is turbocharged for consistent power at all altitudes. A load-sensing hydraulic system saves on fuel consumption by delivering power only when needed. This paver can push asphalt feeder trucks while maintaining working speeds up to 160 fpm.

The 4413 offers paving widths ranging from 8 to 13 feet. Designed to hold up to 7.5 tons of asphalt, the high-capacity hopper provides long operation intervals with fewer refills. It was first introduced at the World of Asphalt 2007.

Yeah, I got that all from the brochure.
