New generation compact cold planers have more power and improved operator efficiency, according to Dynapac. Models PL500T and PL500TD are available as three- or four-wheeled units. Cutting depths are 6.3 inches for the PL500T and 7.9 inches for the PL500TD. Each has a Cummins QSB 4.5 diesel rated at 100 horsepower in the PL500T and 130 horsepower in the PL500TD. Improvements to the operator’s platform include minimized vibration. Controls and instrumentation have been positioned to face toward the operator for ease of operation and all-around visibility, particularly of the cutting areas.
