FAE has expanded its construction line with the RPL/EX road planer for excavators. The new road planer for excavators is based on “cold planer” technology. With cold planer technology, the road's surface is scraped and cut by the impact of special teeth attached to the rotor.
The RPL/EX has a specially designed layout to reduce vibration. With these features, the RPL/EX can be used to prepare roads for resurfacing or to support excavation operations.
The RPL/EX is compatible with excavators from 8 to 14 tons, can mill up to 5.3 in. deep and has a working width of 18 in. The head comes standard with technological and structural features. These include an adjustable hydraulic base that allows you to manage the machine’s working depth, a wide-stroke self-leveling system that allows you to keep the head properly aligned while in operation and an adjustable right skid that allows the operator to keep the head aligned in overlaps. It also has specially designed teeth specifically for use on asphalt and concrete road surfaces.
