FAQs

Q: How fast will a RoadHog mill ?

A: Milling, grinding, stabilizing or reclaiming speeds are not only a function of horsepower & drum width, but are also highly dependent on cutting depth, density, material age, aggregate size and type, ambient temperature and tooth condition. Please consult your Dealer or Factory 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 with the complete model number and serial number of the unit, along with contact information to include company name, contact name, contact phone & contact email.

Q: How long do teeth / picks last?

A: Like production rates, tooth life depends on the depth of the cut, , density, 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 wear AND bottom wear on them. Teeth in the center of the pattern will wear slower.

Q. Are there different types of teeth available, for asphalt vs concrete? 

A. Yes, consult the factory for part numbers and availability. Our general purpose tooth can effectivley cut asphalt or concrete. If there are several hundred square feet or more of concrete to mill, we recommend changing to the concrete specific tooth.

Q. Are there different types of teeth available, depending on material, aggregate type, etc ?

A. Yes, consult the factory to discuss this with our product support staff.

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 RoadHogs consume per hour?

A:  67hp-2.1gph | 75hp- 2.5gph | 140hp-5gph | 200hp-9gph | 275hp-13.2gph
