The RX-600e cold planer offers a unique combination of power, balance, and efficiency. Previously meeting Tier 4 interim compliance, the new RX-600e is powered by a Cummins QSX 15 Tier 4 final engine with a maximum power of 675 hp (496 kW) @ 1,850 engine. True to the Roadtec way, the machine remains extremely accessible and operator-friendly with simplified controls.

The tier 4 final version of the RX-600e comes with a number of updated components including back lit ground controls. In order to provide additional safety and operator comfort, a dust extraction system is now a standard feature on the RX-600e. This system pulls dust from the primary conveyor and ejects the particles into the dump truck alongside the secondary conveyor.

Roadtec uses premium, high-strength steel to fabricate all its cold planer frames. This high-grade steel provides more than twice the yield strength of standard A 36 steel. This is why Roadtec cold planers are stronger without carrying excessive weight. The premium steel provides the necessary strength at reasonable plate thicknesses. Roadtec provides balance between the right weight to perform in the cut without being extremely heavy to transport or consuming excessive fuel to carry extra weight.

In addition to optimum weight balance along with high productivity and speed, the RX-600e is available in three-track and four-track versions with maximum working speeds of up to 127 fpm (39 meters/m) and 163 fpm (50 meters/m), respectively.The maximum available cut depth is 13” (330mm) and the maximum cut width is 86” (2,184mm wide) (depending on the cutter drum). The front load-out conveyor can be positioned up to 60° to either side, making the machine flexible for many working situation.

The Guardian Remote Telematics system is also available with the RX-600e. With Guardian, the machine’s electrical system, hydraulic system, engine, pressure transducers, grade/slope control, and fuel consumption can be closely monitored in real-time via cellular signal. The Guardian system allows owners and service technicians to closely monitor the machine’s activity and easily troubleshoot the machine’s various systems. The Guardian system will automatically email all fault codes and maintenance reminders.

RX-600 machines sold into countries that do not require tier 4 emissions standards will have the model name “RX-600ex.” Other than the after treatment package, both machines will share a very similar list of features.
