AN EVALUATION OF THE ROTO-MILL PROFILER ON CONCRETE PAVEMENTS IN IOWA

A new machine, the ROTO-MILL Profiler, became available in early 1976. This machine, manufactured by CMI Corporation of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma provides pavement surface Scarification at a much higher production rate than was previously possible. Iowa had the opportunity to observe and evaluate this machine on two separate sections of primary portland cement concrete pavement in October, 1976. The marked improvement in the profile index and the skid resistance indicates this machine may be considered a viable method for improving rideability and skid resistance of a roadway that is otherwise reasonably sound. /Author/
