In recent years, milling and finishing requirements have changed. Simex’s design and productive efforts focused on these new developments, aware of a state-of-the-art R&D department, on which the company has always invested.
Starting from the many demands of a market in continuous evolution, Simex counts among its products a special road planer
, called PL SG
, designed to mill either under the guardrail
or when leaned against it. There were two application needs to be respected: on the one hand, meeting the project specifications to excavate a trench or gutter under the guardrail; on the other hand, the solution had to consider the various guardrail configurations, with different heights above the ground.
Recently, a PL SG intervened in the province of Pordenone, on the A28 motorway section, on behalf of our local dealer Edilmeccanica
. To meet the customer’s specific requirements, Simex asphalt planer has been configured with a 300 mm high frame and a special 400 mm wide milling drum
, and then coupled to a CAT 262D3 skid steer loader, set to a working depth of 50 mm
, using the hydraulic side shift to move the PL SG exactly under the guardrail.
This kind of job couldn’t be performed by the large cold planers or traditional self-leveling Simex planers. Intended for mounting on compact loaders, the PL SG can remove the step left by larger machines.
Designed with a completely renewed framed if compared to the traditional planers, this model features only one lateral slide
, ledge on upper part to enable it to lean against the guardrail, hydraulic side shift and depth adjustment
. And finally, it can be supplied with a conveyor belt to remove the milled material from the excavation.
