Racetrack milling By Cat

19 March 2008

A Cat PM-200 was put through its paces on an Italian racetrack project where quality and consistency were top on the minds of crewmembers for Italian contractor Betonvilla SpA. The company accepted the challenge of milling a segment of the Monza National Racetrack near Milan late in 2006. The PM-200 milled a 3000-meter portion of the Monza circuit to a precise depth of 4 cm, and a width of 5.5 m. The total area of milled material for the project came to ear's 16,500 square meters - or 1,585 tonnes.

The machine milled continuously for eight hours the first day, and completed the project in four additional hours the following day, a spokesman added.
