Find a Contractor/Supplier


Cold Planer

Self-Propelled Cold Planer 

  • Cold Planing equipment is available in a variety of sizes from 4 ft mills to half and full lane width and wider sizes
  • Micro Milling is accomplished by replacing the cutting drum of a conventional mill with 5/8 to 3/4 inch cutting teeth spacing for one with approximately 3/16 inch spacing
  • Mini-milling machines are available for localized milling around manholes and valves
  • Cold planers are sized so that the overall weight and available traction are related to the milling width and depth in order to maintain traction
  • Most cold planers are equipped with automatic grade control systems to accurately control grade and profile of the milled surface
  • Four foot and above cold planers are front loading so that they can operate and load trucks in one lane and work in the same direction as traffic, allowing for safer operating conditions
