Customers learned Cat’s “Paving by the Numbers.”
Kelly Tractor Co., a provider of building construction and industrial equipment throughout Florida, recently held a workshop on “Paving and Troubleshooting Techniques” at its corporate headquarters in Miami.
Paving contractors from all across South Florida attended this one day classroom session and hands on experience training presented by Kelly Crushing and Paving Specialist Mike Wohlert.
The “Paving by the Numbers” session took attendees through the steps recommended by Cat when using the Cat AP1000D paver. Cat’s Paving Territory Manager Jerry Salemi was on hand to answer questions. Later, Roger Croft of TopCon global positioning systems presented the proper use of the TopCon sensors that are attached to the paver to ensure a smooth flow of asphalt as it is applied to the paving surface.
In the afternoon, customers previewed the Mauldin paving compact products offered by Calder Brothers, such as the Mauldin M413XT maintainer, the MT-300 tack truck sprayer and 1750-C compact paver. Kelly Tractor Co. distributes Mauldin paving products for the South Florida area.
Mauldin Paving Products representative Trevor Thielbar answered product questions and explained the applications of the machines. Mauldin’s compact paving product line allows more flexibility for paving contractors to tackle smaller projects such as paving tight streets and roads, alleyways and parking lots, according to the manufacturer.
“The event was a success in allowing paving contractors to receive valuable instructional training on paving techniques,” said Wohlert. “It also allowed them to see Mauldin paving products and TopCon systems in a real world setting. We look forward to doing similar workshops in the future.”
