    Are you a paving contractor that paves roads,highways,and airports and in a market for Material Transfer Vehicles or Material Transfer Devices such as windrow pickup machines,here are the following tips that may want to research and consider.
    1.Check with the Local/State D.O.T's and find out what the provisions and the requirements are and whether they require or allow a material transfer vehicle or a material transfer device to be used with a paver in a paving operation.
    2.Is a material transfer vehicle or material transfer device you plan to purchase capable of producing results required like reducing thermal/aggregate segregation and meeting smoothness requirements?
