Road Pavers: Vögele vs Bomag

A paver (road paver finisher, asphalt finisher, road paving machine) is a piece of machinery which is used to lay asphalt concrete or cement onto roads, bridges, car parks and many other places. The paver sets the pace of any road construction project and it consists of multiple features that are used to build a good quality road. It lays the asphalt flat and provides minor compaction before it is compressed by a roller. Today paver machines come with hydraulic loading legs which extend to allow for easy loading and transport, as well as the ability to change widths quickly. There are a number of different kinds of pavers such as roller screed pavers, tracked pavers, wheeled pavers, hybrid offset pavers, and many more. The best roads in the world are constructed when this machine functions smoothly, delivers high quality and can be operated intuitively.
