FAQs

Q: How fast will this unit grind?

A: Milling/Grinding/Stabilizing/Reclaiming speeds are not only a function of Horsepower & Drum Width, but are also highly dependent on Depth, Material Age, Aggregate Size and Type, Ambient Temperature and Tooth Condition. Please consult your Dealer (hyperlink to Dealer Locator Page) or Factory (hyperlink to sales@roadhog-inc.com) with the RoadHog model being considered and the jobsite conditions for an estimated production rate.

Q: How can I get an Operator’s Manual or Service Manual for my RoadHog?

A: Email sales@roadhog-inc.com with the complete Model Number and Serial Number of the unit the manual is desired along with contact information to include company name, contact name, contact phone & contact email.

Q: How long do teeth or picks last?

A: Like production rates, tooth life depends on the depth of the cut, material age, aggregate size, ambient temperature, the horsepower of the unit being used, as well as regular checks during the milling shift. These checks should include making sure the teeth are rotating in their holders, and replacing any tooth that has “flat spotted”. Tooth life is most dependent on the depth of the cut.

Q: It appears some teeth are wearing faster than others. Is this normal?

A: Yes. Teeth on the edges of the drum will wear faster, due to the side load AND bottom load on them. Teeth in the center of the pattern will wear slower.

Q: Do I need to change all teeth at once?

A: No. We also recommend replacing edge teeth with teeth from the center of the drum pattern, and installing the new teeth in the center of the drum pattern.

Q: How long do drive belts last?

A: A properly maintained and adjusted belt in terms of both alignment & tension should see a life expectancy in excess of 250 hours.

Q: How much fuel do the RoadHog’s consume per hour?

A: 49hp-1.75gph | 62hp-2gph | 75hp- 2.5gph | 140hp-5gph | 200hp-9gph | 275hp-13.2gph
