Designed for road rehabilitation, cold recycling and soil stabilization, it can cut up to 20 inches deep and 100 inches wide. Depth can be set by the push of a button, and cutter speed is governed by a four-speed air-shift transmission. The cutter housing is fastened to the mainframe to provide strength and precision, and the cutter housing's variable geometry design achieves material gradation with each pass. The SX-8e rotor is designed for milling and mixing the most resistant soils. High ground clearance allows operation in all terrains. The machine's design also lessens the amount of dust traveling through its cooling system. Other features include a 755-horsepower Tier 4i Caterpillar engine, sealed cabin, joystick controls and four steering modes. The operator seat slides laterally and swings 90 degrees for achieving the right vantage point, and the operator platform slides 18 inches past the right of the machine for added visibility. The wheels are suspended by four independently controlled hydraulically adjustable leg assemblies that are bolted to the mainframe.
