LeeBoy 8530 Asphalt Paver

LeeBoy has upgraded its new 8530 and 8616D asphalt pavers with the 4,150-pound Legend HD Pro screed for greater compaction and strength on large jobs.

The new paving stones are designed for parking lots, driveways, municipal works, subdivisions as well as state and district roads. They have a wide, slow conveyor that moves the material from the truck to the screed without separation, according to the company. The screed also has an automatic temperature control.

The 8530 has a new high-deck operator station to give operators a better view. The seats swing out and rotate. Touchpad control elements were attached to the screed and in the operator station.

The 8616D, which replaces the 8616C, has a similar operator station and control. LeeBoy says it delivers a 30 percent increase in production over the 8616C.

Both paving stones have pavement widths from 8 feet to 15 feet 6 inches. They are powered by Kubota Tier 4 Final engines – 125 hp in the 8530 and 127 hp in the 8616D.

The 8530 weighs 22,520 pounds with screed. The hopper holds 9 tons. The maximum paving depth is 8 inches and the maximum paving speed is 150 feet per minute.

The standard equipment includes self-cleaning rails, two tool boxes on the screed, a backup alarm, LED work lights, anti-vandalism covers, a USB port and cup holders. Options include screed extension vibrations, heated end gates, continuous rubber tracks, inclinometer and truck trailer hitch. Wiring is also available for the Topcon P-32 class and tilt control.
