Flatliner Cold Planer Evaluation for Airfield Pavement Maintenance

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center evaluated tools and procedures for removing small surface irregularities in airfield pavement repairs that cause unacceptable roughness for aircraft. A desirable tool could grind pavement surfaces smooth and flush. A Flatliner cold planer skid steer attachment was identified as a potential device and was used in a field evaluation. The field evaluation considered production rate, smoothness of the treated pavement, and tooth wear for airfield pavement repairs made on Portland cement concrete, rapid-setting cementitious concrete, and asphalt concrete mixtures.
