COLD PLANERS / ASPHALT MILLING MACHINES

a
Powerful and well-balanced, Roadtec asphalt milling machines will outwork the competition.

Our Cold Planers offer solid design, simple troubleshooting, and low cost of operation. Three of the four Roadtec models are available in both 3-track and 4-track configurations, and each Roadtec machine is compatible with the exclusive Guardian Remote Telematics system.

Asphalt milling, also known as asphalt grinding, is performed by heavy-duty pieces of construction equipment known as milling machines or cold planers. Within milling machines, there is a large rotating drum that removes and grinds the asphalt surface. This rotating drum holds the carbide cutters that actually cut the pavement.

The carbide cutters are positioned in such a way that after being cut, the milled pavement is automatically moved to the center of the drum. The pavement is then loaded onto a conveyor belt attached to the milling machine. Most modern machines use a front-loading conveyor system that also picks up any pavement that falls off the conveyor during milling.

Water is generally applied to the drum while it's grinding the pavement. This helps to reduce the extreme heat produced by the milling machine, as well as minimize any airborne dust caused by the milling process.
