Cat road reclaimers pulverize the asphalt layer and mix it with the underlying base to stabilize deteriorated roadways. The reclaimers can add asphalt emulsions or other binding agents during pulverization or during a separate mix pass.
Performance and reliability you expect. The RM500 combines superior performance and reliability to achieve the most demanding job specifications while maximizing machine uptime. With many enhanced features and options, the RM500 is designed to work well in both full depth reclamation and soil stabilization applications.
A combination of innovations working at the point of combustion, ACERT Technology optimizes engine performance while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 3 and European EU Stage IIIa emission regulations for off-road applications.
Ergonomic design emphasizes operator comfort, visibility and easy operation. The platform slides side-to-side to increase versatility and productivity while reducing operator fatigue. All machine controls, switches and gauges are positioned to minimize operator fatigue and maximize productivity. Optional cab can increase machine utilization and provides greater year-round comfort in extreme environment conditions. The cab is fully pressurized and includes air conditioning. Reliable field-proven technology makes machine operation simple and self-diagnostics simplifies troubleshooting.
Hydrostatic drive provides balanced full-time tractive effort to each drive motor. A separate hydraulic pump provides hydraulic flow to large displacement motors on each rear wheel. The system is designed to propel the machine with full-time all-wheel drive. Maximum production with high reliability. A Caterpillar powershift transmission provides three rotor speeds for maximum performance in a variety of materials and cutting depths. Mixing chamber is a heavy-duty hood with large volume to handle deep mixing. Ensures depth control, proper sizing and thorough blending of reclaimed materials.
Heavy-duty front door is ideal for peak efficiency on soil stabilization, bio-remediation or mixing passes on asphalt reclamation.
With a rotor selection, there’s a choice of three rotor designs for different applications and depth specifications. Tools are mounted in drive-in, knock-out holders for quick and easy replacement.
Caterpillar rotary mixers are designed to have the best productivity, reliability, versatility, visibility and operator comfort in their class.
