Carlson Paving Products is entering a new market with the introduction of two new wheeled pavers at bauma in Munich, Germany.
The global debut of the Carlson CP60 and CP65 wheeled asphalt pavers represent the company’s entry into the international 1.8 metre city paver market.
“The introduction of the CP60 and CP65 marks a historic milestone for Carlson,” said Chris Colwell, president of Carlson Paving Products. “As a major manufacturer of small pavers and market leader in asphalt screed technology in North America and Australia, these city pavers are a natural fit as we expand our product offering to a wider global audience.”
Carlson’s wheeled city paver models specialize in a wide array of paving applications including motorized and non-motorized pathways, urban streets and country lanes.
High torque engine
With its 74 hp Deutz high torque engine, available in Tier 4 and Tier 3 engine packages, the CP60 and CP65 deliver laydown rates of up to 250 tonnes per hour, while achieving transport speeds of up to 16 km per hour.
Material flow is delivered via independently controlled, proportional 24 cm-wide conveyors. As well, 33 cm diameter auger flights move material outboard, while the manual or optional power adjustable augers are infinitely variable for a uniform head of material.
For wide paving, both paver models are equipped with manually telescoping tunnels.
The CP60 and CP65 can also be optioned with a hydraulic power apron, eliminating spillage of mix and simplifying end of day cleanout.
To develop the CP60 and CP65, Carlson leveraged its history of high performance screeds into the next generation of 1.8 metre platforms.

According to the company, the result is exceptional ride uniformity, mat quality and pre-compaction. This is achieved by the EZC34 electrically heated screed, with a standard pave width of 1.8 to 3.4 metres.
Available in vibratory and tamper bar models, the EZC34 platform can be built out to 4.5 metres with bolt-on extensions.
“Bauma 2019 truly sets the stage for Carlson as it brings value-driven, high performance platforms for international contractors,” Colwell added.
Furthermore, the full colour LED touchscreen display provides easy-to-read instrument gauges, access to material speed controls and screed settings.
Both operator seats also swing out 30 degrees for forward and rear visibility, while clear line of sight to the augers and head of material are provided with see through grating.
