Caterpillar Introduces 2.2m (88") Rotor Option for the PM200 Cold Planer
Caterpillar Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of the PM200 Cold Planer with an optional 2.2m (88") cutting rotor. Customers now have two cutting width options when purchasing the PM200: the standard 2.0 (79") rotor or the new 2.2m (88") rotor option. The new 2.2m (88") rotor option provides greater efficiency and productivity by reducing passes during applications that benefit from a wider cutting rotor, such as mainline, high productivity milling. Fewer passes will contribute to a reduction in fuel burn. The standard 2.0m (79") rotor provides greater versatility for urban applications and milling tasks that require a high degree of maneuverability and precision.
The PM200 is a high-production, highly maneuverable half-lane milling machine that performs controlled full-depth removal of asphalt and concrete pavements in a single pass. Operating weight for the PM200 is approximately 30 100 kg (66,359 lbs) with the standard 2.0m (79") rotor package; the weight increases to 31 500 kg (69,445 lbs) with the optional 2.2m (88") rotor package.
