Milling machines aren’t known for their tight-space maneuverability, but the compact design and 60-degree conveyor swing of the new Roadtec RX-400 help contractors work more efficiently on shoulders and other confined work areas. The rear-mounted drum on RX-400 allows you to start the cut directly in front of curbs, fences, walls or other obstructions. The machine mills widths of 2, 3 and 4 feet with a maximum depth of 12.5 inches. Propelled by a 325-horsepower Caterpillar C9 engine, the RX-400 boasts a top operating speed of 172 feet per minute.
