Drumcutters Resources

Drumcutters are an alternative to hydraulic breakers by generating higher productivity in several applications. They are designed to achieve optimum performance and precision when removing materials offering low noise and less vibration; critical when working in sensitive environments. Drumcutters consist of extremely robust spur gears driven by high torque hydraulic motors to be used in the most challenging conditions with little to no risk of failure.

Exactor Patch Planing

Drumcutters Exactor Patch Planer

Drumcutters Exactor Patch Planer


The EX range of drumcutters Patch Planers are manufactured in Germany and designed for the accurate planing of asphalt, concrete and stone. The Exactor range consists of patch planers available in 4 sizes, suitable for use on excavators from 6 to 40 tons. The cutter drums for each machine will be available with a choice of tools and cutting widths.
The Exactor can work on horizontal, vertical and inclined surfaces and can even be used upside down to plane the roofs of tunnels. The machines are ideally suited for the repair of asphalt surfaces as well as work requiring tight tolerances such as the removal of very small depths of contaminated concrete or screed floor surfaces.
To provide the best performance on a range of carrier vehicles, a choice of Exactor hydraulic motor specifications are available to suit each application. The mechanical, or optional hydraulic, system for depth control allows the cutting depth to be set at any figure from 0 to 8 ins, depending on model size. If a suction device should be used to extract the cut material, a modified housing can be supplied specifically designed for this purpose.
