Caterpillar’s AP-655C is an 8-foot, rubber-track paver with an operating weight of 40,800 pounds. New features on the unit include a Mobil-trac undercarriage, on-demand variable-speed cooling fan, Caterpillar 3056E ATAAC diesel engine, independent material handling system, easy service access and dual operating stations. The paver uses a steering/propel controller to provide precise and reliable propulsion and steering control. Speed sensors in the track motors are constantly providing information to the controller that increases or decreases the pump stroke to maintain or achieve the desired response due to steering wheel position or speed lever position.
