Electric Screed Heat
- Caterpillar Inc. now offers integrated electric screed heat on four models in its asphalt screed product line. The electric-heat screeds will eliminate the need for the diesel burner system, improving jobsite environmental conditions. The electric screeds feature a fast warm-up time (30 min. or less), even screed plate heating, and low sound levels. Power is supplied by a tractor-mounted, single-phase generator with a 1,800 rpm operating speed.
