This is followed by going down the prepaving checklist. First, the screed needs to be heated. Tow points then need to be centered. The paving width must be set, as must the main screed crown and slope extensions. Once the screed is lowered into a starting position, it’s time to null the screed and set the end gates. The auger height must be set two inches above what is being placed. Feed sensors need to be placed and the auger chamber needs to be filled. After that, it’s time to pull off from the starting point. At this point, the paving begins!
