When the night paving team needs extra light, you can manufacture it. This crew attached an LED light fixture to an aluminum pole and mounted the pole on the operator’s platform of the paver to create a larger nighttime work zone. The lighting fixture has its own power source in the box you see pictured here. The light illuminates the operator’s platform, the hopper and the area around the paver where the dump man would walk. It’s not only a safety improvement, though. This good idea also helps the paver operator monitor the mix as it charges the hopper and the conveyors move it toward the augers.
