Cold Planer: Tier 4 Final Engine
BOMAG’s redesigned 600-hp-class 2200/60 cold planer runs on a Tier 4 Final engine. The milling chamber has been re-engineered with an eye toward extending life and improving performance. Replaceable track pads help lengthen milling time in the field, while a new routing for the hydraulic hose helps to reduce thermal aging. A quick-change system for the cutting tool can reduces the time required to change a full set of teeth by up to 75% compared with other systems, according to the manufacturer. A new integrated dust-extraction system improves air quality at the operator’s station.

The latest addition to DEWALT’s 20V MAX tool line, the blower weighs 5.43 lb without the battery. It features a lightweight design and has a variable speed trigger with a speed lock for greater control.
