Track Undercarriage and Wheel Undercarriage Cold Planers
We offer cold planers in two configurations for a variety of jobs:
Track undercarriage: Tracks perform well in rugged applications involving wet or loose surfaces like gravel or clay. They have added stability during operation that makes them suitable for slopes and uneven ground.
Wheel undercarriage: Wheels maneuver quickly on hard surfaces like asphalt and concrete. They suit jobs that involve moving from site to site in paved environments.
