General Equipment SP8/G Surface Planer

SP8/G Surface Planer

General's SP8/G...high speed, accurate surface preparation up to 8 inches wide and 5/8 inches deep.

The SP8/G Surface Planer utilizes a wide variety of flail type cutters to hammer and impact almost any type of surface. The desired effect is controlled by both flail selection and spacing. Wheels located directly behind the drum allow the SP8/G to cut through high spots and irregularities on slab surfaces. Precise weight and balance enhance operator control and machine maneuverability.

The SP8/G is ideal for milling misaligned sidewalks and joints, and removing encrusted accumulations on floors to improve working conditions and safety. Specially designed tungsten carbide insert flails effectively remove thermoplastic and cold plastic type markings from roadways.

A heavy, welded frame and extra capacity ball bearings make the hard working SP8/G very cost effective and reliable. Other standard features include a screw type, cutting depth control, water mist dust control, fitting and vacumn attachment tube.
