Macropaver 12E

MP12E back cutout webThe VSS truck-mounted Macropaver® 12E offers all of the features and benefits as the Model 12D with the John Deere engine replaced by a PTO drive.  The PTO dirve results in lower emissions, less maintenance and quieter operation.


The Macropaver has gained a world-wide reputation for flexibility, high production and low-cost performance. The Macropaver® 12E applies all slurry and polymer-modified microsurfacings with equal ease.


With over 60 years as a pavement maintenance contractor, VSS has introduced more people to the Slurry Seal and Microsurfacing business than any other company. Equipped with the New EZ-OP Monitoring System, the 2016 Macropaver® 12E has made it even simpler to train new operators and create ease-of-use by eliminating manual calculations with intuitive controls.  Read more about getting started in the slurry/microsurfacing business.


Consistent quality is accomplished throughout the production with automatic sequencing.  The Macropaver® 12E can easily double the application rates of competitive conventional machines, with average outputs of 2.7 – 3.6 tonne/min (3-4 tons/min).  The Macropaver® 12E features the finest quality components and no chain or sprocket drives. Rugged and dependable performance has proven MP’s superior reliability, ease of operation and productivity.  Read more about the Macropaver® 12E's productivity and reliability or read some customer testimonials.
