COLD PLANERS / MILLING MACHINES

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

Our cold planers offer solid design features, systems that are simple to troubleshoot, and low cost of operation. Three of our four models are available in 3-track and 4-track configurations, and each Roadtec machine is compatible with the exclusive Guardian Remote Telematics system.

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

The carbide cutters are positioned in such a way that after being cut, the 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 milling.
