Asphalt spreader is efficient and easy to operate attachment for smaller repairs on roads, pavements, yards, etc. It is intended for spreading mastic asphalt (guss asphalt) which is made especially for surface repairs. Therefore the spreader doesn’t work with traditional asphalt.
The 700 mm wide asphalt strip is spread by driving forward with the loader. This way the new asphalt surface runs between the wheels of the loader. Hydraulically operated hatch at the bottom of the spreader allows spreading the right amount of asphalt to the rear compacting plate which compacts the asphalt - additional compacting with an asphalt roller is not necessary. The unit moves on skid shoes made of Hardox steel.
The required aggregate (sand) spreading on asphalt - to make the new asphalt less slippery - can be done at the same time with the rear-mounted Avant sand spreader.
