Speed Control
A speed control dial located on each operator station allows the operator to set a maximum travel speed. When the propel lever is positioned in the full-forward position the paver will travel at the pre-set speed. Each station includes a meters per minute (feet per minute) gauge.

Exclusive Material Delivery System
Productivity and quality enhancements are built-in features.

Mix Delivery
The AP-1055D provides precise mix delivery with minimal operator monitoring through the most advanced material handling system.

Feeders Controlled Independently
Left and right feeders in addition to the left and right augers are controlled independently. The ability to control these four components separately, through a machine controller, eliminates the need for feeder gates.

Mix Delivery Control
In order to control mix delivery, the operator sets a speed rate for each feeder that will maintain the desired mix level in the left and right auger champbers. Once the feeder speeds are set, the ratio of feeder speed to the maximum auger speed is automatically maintained by the machine controller, even through the propel rate may change as the job progresses.

Ratio Control
This ratio control capability is particularly helpful when paving wider on one side of the machine than on the other. Each feeder can be set at a specified speed to deliver the proper amount of mix that is needed.

Outboard Feeder Drives
Increased live tunnel area provides easy servicing.

Gateless Feeders
Variable speed feeders precisely control mix delivery while reducing wear and segregation.

Gateless Feeders Run Full of Mix
The gateless feeders on the AP-1055D always run full of mix regardless of the speed required to fill the auger chamber. This is typically a slower speed than would be experienced with a paver utilizing feeder gates to control mix delivery rates. By not always having to run at full speed, feeder component wear is significantly reduced.

Changes in Feeder Speed
When changes in feeder speed are required, delivery of mix to the augers is immediate. This is in contrast to pavers with gates, where any delivery rate change is delayed for the length of time it takes to clear the tunnel of mix from the previous gate setting.

Running at Slower Speeds
Running at slower speeds can also help reduce the opportunity for segregation, especially when working with larger stone mixes that have more of a tendency to segregate.

Feeder Design
Tunnel construction improves mix flow.

Auger Assembly
Provides mat consistency while minimizing segregation.
