Bobcat Planer Attachments Tackle Hard-to-Reach Areas

Staff | September 28, 2010

Bobcat® planer attachments are an economic solution designed to work well on a wide range of Bobcat compact loaders. The attachment is ideal for milling potholes, alligator cracks, or other defects in parking lots and roadways. The low maintenance planer attachments are also an invaluable tool for many asphalt and concrete repair jobs such as mating uneven pavement surfaces, cutting drainage in parking lots, street repairs, and cleanup around larger milling machines.

Available in four models: 14-, 18-, 24-, and 40 inches; fingertip controls come standard on all models except the 14-inch, which is optional. Each planer attachment has a hydraulic side shift which allows them to plane close to walls and curbs, and to easily reposition the drum for another pass. The oscillating planer housing makes it easier to plane sloping surfaces or to match two uneven surfaces, rotating plus-or-minus 15 degrees on the 14-, 18-, and 24-inch models, and 8 degrees on the 40-inch model. They also feature a direct-drive high torque motor for low maintenance and high efficiency.

The planer attachments feature a top access panel for easier bit service and maintenance and they also have side cutting bits to decrease drum binding in the cut and to produce a vertical edge that improves the joint bond between a new layer of asphalt and the existing layer.

High Flow Option

Bobcat high flow planer attachments provide additional versatility with more features, independent controls, and higher production utilizing the high-flow hydraulic systems of select Bobcat skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, and all-wheel steer loaders.
