The LeeBoy 8816 Asphalt Paver has expanded the options available to both commercial and highway heavy asphalt paving contractors with this 25,000-pound, 130-horsepower, maneuverable asphalt paver designed for road and large commercial applications.
The LeeBoy 8816 features a specially designed, heavy-duty, vibrating and heated Legend Screed System. The new Legend Electric Screed Heat System is available as an option on the 8816, giving paving contractors a choice of propane or electricity as the heating fuel source. The Legend Electric Screed System, powered by an on-board generator, offers the safety benefit of no flame, fuel or fumes from the screed heating process, along with consistent temperature control of the heating elements across the width of the screed plate and screed extensions.
The powerful 130-hp Cummins turbo diesel engine and two-speed hydrostatic drive allow the LeeBoy 8816 to pave base material or asphalt topcoat up to 6-inch depths at infinitely variable widths from 8™ to 15™5 smoothly and efficiently.
Its 10-ton receiving hopper has hydraulically folding radius wings and feeds the paver with dual 18-inch feeding conveyors. The screed extends hydraulically from 8™ to 15™6 and is fed by 14-inch variable speed augers with independent sonic auger and conveyor controls. Patented under-auger cut-off plates make for clean starts and stops by eliminating most of the end work. Adjustable screed extensions feature a 10 percent slope.
Operator features include complete electric over hydraulic control (eliminating cables) of all paving functions from right or left sides of the paver. Steering wheel is standard with an option for proportional electronic steering.
