AP 550

The reliable and durable AP 550 Wheeled Hydrostatic Sensor Paver comes with a variety of features that enable quality, productivity and easy operation. Among them: hydrostatic drive, fingertip controls, a swinging console, a hydraulically extendible screed with vibration and tamping, and best-in-class sensors. Double-axle design provides greater stability on difficult terrains, with zero flexing – even at the widest paving widths.


The AP 550 has a basic screed width of 2.5 metres and is hydraulically extendible up to 4.5 metres. Bolt-on mechanical extensions, on either side of the screed, offer a paving width of 5.75 metres. Grade and slope controls are extremely precise. Grade control accuracy levels are within a millimeter, while slope control is within 0.1 per cent.


The pavers come equipped with sensors. Customers choose from the German MOBA system, string sensors or ultrasonic sensors. The result of all these useful features: an impressive paving performance along with excellent compaction values.

The AP 550 has a basic screed width of 2.5 metres and is hydraulically extendible up to 4.5 metres. Bolt-on mechanical extensions, on either side of the screed, offer a paving width of 5.75 metres.

The paver’s tamping and vibration arrangement is in line with Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, government of India and accepted international specifications. Diesel burners provide uniform screed heating. LPG heating is offered as an option.

Hydrostatic Controls

Conveyor and auger drive is powered by a variable displacement hydraulic pump and fixed motor for material feed. Stepless feeding through a proportional hydraulic system is optional. The steering and transmission are hydraulically controlled.

Proven Technology

More than 2000 Apollo machines are in operation in India and abroad, with 12 to 15 new units delivered each month. This is an indication of the high level of customer acceptance of the proven technology found in Apollo Hydrostatic Sensor Pavers.

Accurate Grade and Slope Control

Electronic grade and slope control sensing devices utilise European technology and meet international accuracy standards.

Long Life

Solid construction and quality components mean years of trouble-free performance, even under adverse conditions. The product life cycle cost is the lowest in the industry.

Prompt After-Sales Service

A team of trained service personnel provide service at all levels – from the factory, to the region, to the branch and to dealer locations. Spare parts support maximises machine availability.
