On Oct. 27, Dynapac hosted an open house at its full-line Nashville area distributor’s facility, Atlas Copco CMT USA, Lavergne, Tenn. Guests enjoyed a barbeque lunch and giveaways and checked out a huge display of the newest Dynapac and Atlas Copco products. Representatives from both manufacturers, as well as the staff of Atlas Copco turned out to promote the products on display. The recently introduced Dynapac highway class F1000 series asphalt pavers in wheeled and tracked models were on display.

Several of the guests in attendance were recent buyers of some of the machines on display at the event.

Jeff Mosley, Site Masters Construction Inc., Pheba, Miss.. recently purchased a Dynapac F1000T paver.

“In the last 2 months, we laid close to 40,000 tons of asphalt with it and have been amazed with the tonnage output and the quality of the mat. We’ve received exceptional support from the sales and service staff at Atlas Copco. We also purchased a Dynapac CC424HF dual drum roller and have been really pleased with that machine as well.”

A recent buyer of a Carlson CP-90 paver from Atlas Copco, Claire Barnett, BAC Paving, Nashville, Tenn., said “We absolutely love it. The first time we used it was on the Music City Bikeways in Nashville. When the Carlson finished, we received many compliments on how it performed and on the overall smoothness of the final product. We were under a tight deadline on this project which included six weeks of active paving and on one of the days we were able to lay 1,300 tons of mix.”
