Atlas Copco Compact Planers sets New Benchmarks in India

Dynapac PL1000 Compact Planers
The Dynapac PL1000 Compact Planer, the first Dynapac Planer in its new colours from Atlas Copco India's road construction equipment division, has been deployed by M/s Ajit Singh & Sons in a marathon milling project. The said project near Ambala in Haryana, India has been successfully completed much before the deadline.

As an established road contracting company in Haryana & Punjab, M/s Ajit Singh & Sons have an ongoing relationship with Atlas Copco India having experienced the excellent performance of the hydraulic rock breaker in the past. They chose to use the Atlas Copco Planer, Dynapac PL1000 to complete a milling project for a PMGSY, connecting road where the road finish was deteriorating.

This project had a mandate to mill a road length of 17 km and road width of around 10 feet near Ambala in Haryana, India. What makes this project unique is the continuous running of the Dynapac PL1000 planer.

Earlier, excavators or backhoe buckets were used to remove the top layer of the road where the excavated material would go waste. Over the years, new technology and expertise has emerged in road construction, where new inventions like compact planers enable milling techniques where it is possible to reuse the milled material in the relaying process.

Atlas Copco Compact Planers
The Dynapac PL350, PL500 and PL1000 are compact cold planers which have milling widths from 0.35 to 1m. Its well-proven design is based on accumulated experience and input from field operators and owners. Available as 4 wheeled units, these models are highly user friendly and offer high performance, excellent manoeuvrability, and an impressive level of reliability. Dynapac compact planers effortlessly achieve a depth upto 300 mm.

Specifically on why the PL1000 is his preferred choice, Mr. Sher Singh Ahluwalia says. "I am satisfied with the long and foldable conveyor, robust design and look, easy controls and easy maintenance access. It is very simple to maintain and check the milling drum". He further adds, "The operator comfort and superior milling performance is suitably complemented with great working speed which gives better fuel economy as compared to other planers in the market".

The expectation is that in the near future as more and more state authorities are approving and mandating use of Recycled Asphalt (RAP) and with the scarcity of aggregate in some areas..... Milling would be the future in road construction in India!!!

With the on-site application success and increased customer confidence, the Dynapac Compact Planers are poised to set new benchmarks in cold planning and milling in India!
