Cat® Cold Planers are designed for small paving jobs in residential and commercial applications and are primarily used to economically restore asphalt and concrete surfaces. They are ideal for milling imperfections prior to resurfacing, removing deteriorated pavement, removing traffic lane stripes and jobs where the use of dedicated planers is limited. The Cat Cold Planers are designed for use on Cat Skid Steer Loaders, Compact Track Loaders, Compact Wheel Loaders and Backhoe Loaders.

Standard Bit Type
Designed for small paving jobs in residential and commercial applications, and are primarily used to economically restore asphalt and concrete surfaces. Ideal for milling imperfections prior to resurfacing, removing deteriorated pavement, removing traffic lane stripes and jobs where the use of dedicated planers is limited.
Self-leveling design automatically levels itself when placed on the ground for consistent depth control without operator adjustments and excellent spoil retention.
Two Wear-Resistant Skid Plates
Two wear-resistant skid plates remain parallel to the ground for optimum stability.
Hydraulic Side shift
Hydraulic side shift permits close planing to curbs, walls and other obstructions.
Independent Left/Right Depth Control
Independent left/right depth control allows maximum drum depths to be adjusted independently on each skid. Gauges are easily viewable from the cab. Independent depth control is mechanical on the PC104 and PC105 models; hydraulic independent depth control is standard on the PC305-PC412 models.
Max Pro Pressure Gauge
Max Pro Pressure Gauge provides operator feedback to adjust speed for maximum productivity in changing material loads. Gauge displays planer performance in real-time conditions and is visible from the cab. Standard on all models.
Direct Drive System
Direct drive system on the standard flow models features a variable speed, uni-directional, gerotor style hydraulic motor. Direct drive system on high flow and XHP models features a hydraulic radial piston motor to ensure maximum cutting rate and drum torque for optimal production performance and efficiency.
Float, Spring Tilt and Hydraulic Tilt
Float enables planers to follow the contour of the surface. Float is activated by a knob and is only available on high flow and XHP planers. Spring tilt and hydraulic tilt enable planers to oscillate for angled cuts. Tilt is hydraulically controlled on high flow models and spring controlled on standard flow planers.
All purpose conical bits are standard. Optional concrete bits, heavy duty concrete bits, and heavy duty asphalt bits are also available. Tools to change out the bits are included.
Indicates contact point of drum with surface based on depth of cut, so an assistant can communicate with the operator when to start and stop the cut.
Drum Center Indicator
Indicates center of the drum on the side of the planer.
Fast Cut Asphalt Drums Standard
Fast cut asphalt drums require less power for cutting due to increased spacing between cutting lines on the drum. These drums improve productivity in asphalt applications, and are now standard on all models. Multi-purpose and optional-width drums are also available.
Serrated steps allow for safe and easy access in and out of the cab. A new center step enables even easier access and shorter step lengths by the operator.
Stores the OMM (Operation and Maintenance Manual) in a protective case on the attachment, where it can be conveniently accessed.
Optional Integrated Water Tank
Coupler frame-mounted water tank provides 160 liters (42 gallons) capacity with a tank level sight gauge. Can be combined with cab-mounted water tank for additional capacity and run time. Sprinkler kit included if cold planer is ordered with a water tank installed. Water tank not available on XD models.
