Sumitomo Pavers

Sumitomo GPL imageSUMITOMO asphalt pavers are designed under the concept of ‘Human Friendly, Eco Friendly, Repair Friendly’ which supplies high performance, easy operation and cost savings to our customers.

On the HA60, the unique infinitely variable screed ‘2360’ can be used for 2.3-6 metres paving width without any bolt-on extension boxes. At the same time, the transportation width of the paver is under 2.5 metres, including side plates. Using the STV (Strike-off, Tamper, Vibration) compaction system, HA60 gives a smooth high-quality pavement. And depending on the job site, you can choose the wheel-driven type HA60W or the crawler driven type HA60C.

SUMITOMO started manufacturing asphalt pavers in 1958, and production continues with the upcoming new model -11 that will meet EU Stage V emissions standards: you can see the prototype at bauma 2019.
