What our customers are saying

“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

“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 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

- Kevin Piona, Mr. Black Top, California, USA

“It's nice to see that there are still some American companies out there making equipment that last long and works well. We will definitely be purchasing more equipment from LeeBoy in the future.”

- Scott Flores, Empire Parking Lot Services, California, USA

“I've been paving for 3 generations, the absolute best investment we made as company was buying a LeeBoy. If you’re thinking about buying one, stop thinking and make best decision of your life. Thank you LeeBoy. I will be spreading the word!”
