Time is always of the essence when it comes to road building. Regardless of where you are, road restrictions from construction are expected to be as minimal as possible. The Simex Planers make work more efficient , helping keep road projects on time and in budget.
Simex Planers are available in multi configurations to cover milling (cold planing) and ground stabilisation, helping complete any road rehabilitation nation-wide. Many of the features on the Simex Planer work to make applications more efficient on site, helping to keep road projects on time and budget.
With a maximum width of 1200 millimetres and a milling depth of 350 millimetres (depending on model), the Simex Planers are well suited to small and medium works and are especially suitable in tight areas and around potholes or kerbs.
Craig Einam, Queensland Rock Breakers Sales Area Manager, says the ability to get closer to manholes and kerbs is one of the big advantages of the planers.
“With the Simex Planer you can get a lot closer to these objects and that removes some of the manpower and other equipment like jackhammers that might be required. All the people that use these planers love the fact that the machine can do a lot of the work for them,” Einam says.
The Simex Planers are also self-levelling, which helps the operator to ensure consistent milling depth regardless of any surface discrepancies.
Independent depth control on either side of the planer can create sloped surfaces. When paired with the self-levelling feature and the traverse tilt system this ensures there are no height differences in the final product even if a project begins with uneven ground.
STABILISING AND REHABILITATION
The process of stabilising a road base when a pavement comes to the end of its lifecycle is becoming increasingly popular due its recycling capability.
Due to the finite nature of some road base aggregates, reusing or recycling existing road base through stabilisation is important.
SIMEX PL high depth planers enable productive stabilisation or rehabilitation of existing roadways.
The SIMEX PL high depth planers enable contractors to crush and mix road base with stabilisation agents down to 350 millimetres.
Tino Vinella, Assistant Manager at Walkers Hammers, says the SIMEX PL high depth planers have a unique 110 litre water tank built into the rear pick up frame which reduces dust when working.
Simex Planers are available across the country throughout the Simex dealership network which includes; Walkers Hammers in VIC and TAS, Groundtec in NSW, QLD Rock Breakers in QLD and NT, Total Rockbreaking Solutions in WA and Renex Equipment in SA.
