Paving Calculator

We've built a paving calculator to help you estimate the production speed of your paving project

At Roadtec we know if you can accurately calculate the production speed and truck cycle times of your project, you can save a ton of money. We built a paving calculator that will help you accurately calculate all that information and get you through your project faster and more efficiently. Fill in all the necessary information below and we'll calculate the estimated paving speed needed to match production rates. You can also calculate your truck cycle times with or without the use of a Roadtec Shuttlebuggy.
