Cold planers (or milling machines) are used for milling of roadways, where the surface is ground away by the machine. The reasons for doing this are varied, and range from recycling of roadway material before repaving - to removing problems like rutting, bleeding, raveling, shoving or uneven sections (1).
The Proper Equipment Is Necessary
Slow and lumbering, a cold planer isn’t built for fast travel. If you need your milling machine in a new location that’s far away, then you’ll need the right trailer to haul it. If your trailer either doesn’t have ramps or these aren’t rated for the cold planer’s weight - you’ll also need some way to load it.
This equipment is a big investment, and one you may not be prepared to make. Or, you may already have the necessary rig - but don’t relish the thought of driving it thousands of miles to its new destination.
A Cost-Effective Choice
When you factor in the cost for fuel, wear and tear on your transport equipment, meals and lodging - it’s often far more cost-effective to hire a professional transit service instead. This has the added benefit of letting you rest easy, as all the heavy lifting (and risk) is handled for you. A1 Auto Transport is able to haul vehicles of all shapes and sizes, including oversized equipment like your milling machine.
