Horsepower Increased on RX-700 Cold Planer
Heavy Duty Half-Lane Planer Couples Productivity with Low Cost of Ownership
The newest model of Roadtec’s RX-700e features the increased power of a 800 hp Tier 4 Final Caterpillar® engine. The new Tier 4 Final engine does not require DEF fluid as a component of the after-treatment system, reducing the operation costs typically required at this emission standard. The updated half-lane cold planer provides even higher production and reliability through increased power and efficient design.
Kyle Hammon, Product Manager - Mills, Stabilizers, Brooms, stated, “The increased horsepower delivers even more production. We give customers what they need: a reliable and efficient cold planer that helps them complete jobs on time and with success.”
Variable cut widths—The RX-700 cuts up to 14” deep with standard widths of 6’7”, 7’2”, 8’2” and 10’6”.
Increased wear life & efficiency—The cutter housing includes angled moldboards, which prevent material from accumulating around the drum, resulting in less wear. Track pads are bolted on, which makes changing pads fast, saving time and money.
Durable strength—The RX 700’s durable frame is made of A656 Grade 80 steel, which is twice as strong as the mild steel commonly used. This yields a stronger, lighter frame.
Easy to use conveyors—A 60-degree conveyor swing (greater than the traditional 40 degree) permits easy feeding of a truck in an adjacent lane or around a tight bend. A folding secondary conveyor is available to aid in transport and loading.
Automated elevation controls—The Automated Control of Elevation (ACE) system automates machine elevation through a combination of grade and slope sensors. The operator and ground crew can easily make changes to the grade and slope parameters, on the job and in real time.
The updated RX-700 provides the optimum balance between horsepower, production and maneuverability.
