Coneqtec-Universal cold planers

Coneqtec-Universal’s flagship for skid-steer attachments is the AP cold planer with widths from 12 to 48 inches.

  • Open drum design greatly reduces re-milling, increases productivity, and reduces dust, noise and uneven cuts.
  • Front down design contains debris in shell and leaves it behind within the milled strip – not to the sides or thrown out front.
  • Heavy-duty carriage arms transfer the host machine’s weight directly over the centre point of the drum for maximum control without bouncing.
  • Direct-drive high-torque motors deliver power directly to the drum. One or two speed (increased torque) motors are available.
