Which items need attention during inspection of a used paver asphalt?

Inspecting an used asphalt paver is crucial to ensure that it’s in good working condition and will meet your construction needs. Here are some key items to pay attention to during the inspection:

  • Overall Condition:
  • Check for signs of excessive wear, rust, or damage to the main frame and components.
  • Inspect the paint condition and play in pins and bushings as it can give you an idea of how well the equipment has been maintained.
  • Engine:
  • Start the engine and listen for any unusual noises, such as knocks or rattles.
  • Check for visible leaks of oil or other fluids.
  • Inspect the exhaust system for signs of damage or excessive smoke.
  • Check the amount of blow-by to estimate engine wear.
  • Hydraulic System:
  • Check hydraulic hoses and connections for leaks, wear or damage.
  • Operate all hydraulic functions (e.g., screed extension, elevation, conveyor) to ensure they are smooth and responsive.
  • Look for any signs of hydraulic fluid contamination.
  • Tracks or Tires:
  • Inspect the condition of tracks or tires for wear, damage or uneven wear patterns.
  • Check the tension of tracks and look for any loose bolts or damaged components.
  • Screed:
  • Inspect the condition of the screed plates and extensions for wear (ultrasonic measurement).
  • Check for proper heating and temperature control functionality (infrared thermometer or camera).
  • Verify that all screed adjustments and extensions operate smoothly.
  • Conveyor System:
  • Check the condition of the conveyor belts and chain for wear and proper tension.
  • Ensure that the conveyor system operates smoothly without any unusual noises.
  • Electrical System:
  • Inspect the wiring for any signs of damage or poor connections.
  • Test all electrical controls and instruments to ensure they are functioning correctly.
  • Operator’s Station:
  • Check the condition of the operator’s seat and controls.
  • Test all gauges, indicators and warn lights.
  • Ensure that heating and air conditioning systems are working properly.
  • Fluid Levels:
  • Check the levels of engine oil, hydraulic oil, coolant and other essential fluids.
  • Ensure that all fluid reservoirs are free from contamination.
  • Documentation:
    • Request maintenance records and any available service history.
    • Check if the equipment has undergone any recent repairs or major overhauls.
  • Performance Test:
    • If possible, conduct a test run to assess the overall performance of the paver.
    • Check the drive and steering operation (manual and automatic mode).

Always consult the manufacturer’s guidelines and specifications for the specific model of asphalt paver you are inspecting. If you are not familiar with the equipment, consider bringing along a qualified mechanic or MEVAS-technician to assist with the inspection.
