Quietly does it

24 April 2008

Resurfacing a busy street in the centre of bupapest, hungary with minimal disruption presented the main contractor Betonut with a challenge. The project involved repairing Bem Rakpart, which runs alongside the Danube opposite the Hungarian Parliament, as well as a section of Budai Alsò Rakpartjust, close to the Margit Bridge.

Local rental fleet operator Hazai Èpitògép Tarsulás had just taken delivery of Hungary’s first Dynapac PL 200 LS cold planer and suggested that Betonut used the Budpest project as the machine’s debut. The new planer is powered by a 447 kW Cummins engine, which gives the machine a maximum working speed of up to 40 m per minute, while producing a noise level of 106,5 dB(A), making it ideal for the city centre project.

The planer was used to mill out between 80 and 120 mm of the existing asphalt wearing course, which was removed from site before being replaced with new asphalt. A spokesman for the contractor said, “The joystick steering on the PL 2000 LS was very easy to control and gives good accuracy.”
