A new grade and slope control automation system designed specifically for cold planers, SmoothMill is available as an option on Roadtec RX-500, RX-700 and RX-900 milling machines. Using MOBA components, the system automatically adjusts the depth of cut based on pre-set requirements. It features two dual control boxes for ground personnel, each capable of controlling both sides of the cold planer, as well as a separate control box for the machine operator/driver. Enhanced ease of use, says Roadtec, comes from the ability to plug controls into sockets located on the outside of the cold planer and from combining right- and left-hand controls into a single box.
