What our customers are saying

“I have been laying asphalt for 32 years now. I come from a time when we used to lay asphalt with a ‘dragbox’. I used to dream of a machine like the LeeBoy paver. In my opinion there is no better or labor-friendly machine like the LeeBoy. From the 1000 to the 8515, the work output and quality is simply unparalleled.”

- Frank Cidade, Cidade Blacktop, Massachusetts, USA

“Can’t beat a LeeBoy. They’re tanks. It feels wrong to use any other brand. They last forever and are very comfortable.”

- Nick Stanley, California, USA

“My old 8515 laid 510 ton on a church lot in Hopkinsville, KY today. Ain’t even broke a sweat yet, might even stop and do a small drive on the way home. Suns up, “Sons” working. Still as sweet today as the day l bought it.”

- Randy Bennett, Bennett & Sons Paving, Kentucky, USA

“Best paver made in the USA. Parts always available. Designed with the paving man in mind. LOVE IT. Other pavers to me are not an option.”

- Alan Taylor, Connecticut, USA

“My family business has been using LeeBoy for three generations. When it comes to asphalt, SMI Paving is “LeeBoy Proud” always!”

- Jack Smith, SMI Paving, South Carolina, USA

“I love LeeBoy pavers. Wouldn’t use anything else. We have a 7000 and a 1000, and looking at an 8500 to buy soon.”

- D. Harrison, Black Rock and Son Paving, Pennsylvania, USA

"I'm a mid-size paving contractor, and for me, there's no better machine made. The versatility of the sizes available is amazing. Even the small LeeBoy can tackle the largest project with ease. I tell everyone LeeBoy is the reason my family and I are fed. Have been and will continue to be a customer for life."

- Noah Williams, SOS Paving LLC, Tennessee, USA
