Champion Roadmaster System
Champion Motor Graders and its development partners chose the National Pavement Expo, Nashville, TN, to demonstrate the Roadmaster Ride Quality Improvement System. The flagship component of the system is the Roadmaster RP626 asphalt profiler, consisting of a 6-ft. grinder cutting head mounted under the front frame of a dedicated Champion C60 motor grader.
The profiler smooths asphalt surfaces by grinding away any bumps and irregularities within tolerances of 1/8 in. or less. Its 26-in.-diameter by 6-ft.-wide drum includes 218 carbide teeth. The double-wrap cutting head can fine-finish up to two lane/miles per shift.
The RP626 is powered by a 200-hp Cummins QSB 6.7 engine matched to an infinitely variable hydrostatic drive transmission. The rugged chassis and hydrostatic drive system are designed for maximum power and control.
Finish profiling is only the first of three steps in the Roadmaster system. It is followed by a sealer to fill any remaining cracks in the surface, then a rejuvenator to restore life and resiliency to old asphalt.
Zanetis Road Hog
The SSP Series Road Hog planer attachment from Zanetis Power Attachments quickly converts your backhoe-loader or wheel loader into a milling machine. It is compatible with carriers over 13,000 lbs., and is available with pin-on or optional quick-attach brackets.
The Road Hog comes in 30-, 40- and 60-in. cutting widths and provides up to a 10-in. cutting depth. Kennametal general-purpose carbide cutting teeth are standard; stabilizing teeth are optional. The cutting drum side shifts 26 in. from center to the right-hand side for cutting against curbs. It also offers +/- 8° of drum tilt for wedge cuts and tapering keyways.
A Fairfield 21:1 planetary drum drive system maximizes power from the 75-hp Deutz BF3M2011 air/oil-cooled four-cylinder diesel engine. A Hetronic wireless remote controller activates engine functions and drum tilt, depth and side shift. No hydraulic or electrical interface to the carrier is required.
Additional features include a Logan hydraulically engaged clutch, emergency shutoff system and a drum access cover that exposes the front and sides of the cutting drum for quick, easy tooth changes.
CEAttachments severe-duty planer
The EDGE severe-duty cold planer provides a 40-in. width with a 10-in. cutting depth, and is suited for use on high-flow skid steers. Tilt, depth and side shift are all electro-hydraulic controlled.
The attachment incorporates a planetary reduction gearbox and fitted due-cone seals to prevent milled debris from eroding the seal of the gearbox. An in-line filter protects the hydraulic motor from contaminants.
The full side plates and rear mounting flange enclose the drum to help contain milled debris within the housing. The front lid allows easy access for cleaning and maintenance of picks. In addition, depth markers on the rear of the drum housing allow for easy visibility.
A more powerful engine and three new rotor options head the list of improvements made to the MPH122-2 recycler/stabilizer.
The MPH122-2 is now equipped with a 482-hp Deutz Tier III-compliant turbocharged V-6 engine, which provides about 9% more horsepower than the previous model. All-wheel drive allows for operation on severe grades or in difficult traction conditions. A compact design and articulated and rear-wheel steering enhance maneuverability. The robust center joint also provides a smaller turning radius than its predecessor.
The MPH122-2 continues to feature an integrated hydrostatic rotor drive. The standard center-mounted universal rotor is 91.7 in. wide and has 192 cutting teeth and a 19.7-in. maximum cutting depth. Maximum working speed is 211 fpm.
Three new rotor options include a 91.7-in.-wide stabilizer rotor with Kennametal paddle-type teeth and a 19.7-in. maximum cutting depth; a 99.6-in.-wide universal rotor with a 16.5-in. cutting depth; and a 99.6-in.-wide universal rotor with bolt-on Kennametal tooth holders and a 16.5-in. cutting depth.
