Cold milling technology for new FAE road planers
FAE is expanding its offerings in the construction sector with a new series of products dedicated to the world of road maintenance. These are the RPL/SSL, RPM/SSL and RWM/SSL milling machines, intended to equip skid steer loaders and designed to prepare and restore the road surface with a view to applying a new layer of asphalt or concrete, but also to simplify excavation operations (in the case of the RWM/SSL). These machines are based on 'cold milling' technology, whereby the surface of the road surface is scored and milled by special tools attached to the rotor.
The rotor is designed by FAE's designers to increase the performance of the milling machine and reduce vibration. The RPL/SSL model can be used with skid steer loaders from 60 to 120 Hp, it can mill down to a depth of 17 cm, and it is available in three widths: 45, 60 and 75 cm. The RPM/SSL, for skid steer loaders between 75 and 120 Hp, is even more powerful as it can cut asphalt up to 25 cm deep and 60 cm wide. Operational precision is ensured by the hydraulic translation system and practical depth and cut indicators.
The design also eases the work as it gives the operator in the cab a full view of the cutter. The RWM/SSL model is compatible with skid steer loaders from 75 to 120 Hp and can create trenches up to 50 cm deep with a modular width of 8, 10 or 12 cm.
The working depth is provided by both a special indicator and the self-levelling skids. The milling system is equipped with a disc rotor, which makes this machine suitable for creating trenches for laying electricity and water pipes, as well as for gas and fibre optics.
