//What equipment is used to install hot mix asphalt?

A few examples are as followed: A milling machine is typically used to remove the surface material of existing pavement and the area is cleaned of loose debris on an overlay project. Distributor tanks are used to apply prime coats and/or tack coats. Dump trucks are used to transport hot mix asphalt material from the plant to the paving site and a heavy duty machine paver is used to pave a smooth pre-compacted mat. Then asphalt compactors/rollers with a vibration, are used to densify the material.
