Caterpillar BG-245C Asphalt Paver
December 11, 2007

The Caterpillar BG-245C is a high-production track paver designed for interstates, highways, subdivisions, airports and other similar sized projects. It is effective on new construction projects because of its track undercarriage. The steel track undercarriage uses field-proven Cat D3 Track-type Tractor technology. This method of propulsion offers advantages when operating on unstable bases or on steep grades. Excellent tractive effort, low ground pressure and enhanced flotation are some of the advantages. The new model is suited to all geographic regions that favor track pavers. Typical characteristics of theses areas include sandy, loose soil; sub-base or base materials that do not permit good traction by wheel pavers; and areas with significant grades.
