JIEHE'S JHE280 Self-Propelled Concrete planer
JHE280 concrete planer moves by itself, which cuts down on the work you’ll do to operate it, but makes cutting through and removing old concrete or asphalt quite efficient. The hydrostatic drive transmission moves the machine forward and backward while you control the speed, milling a 11-inch wide surface area with each pass to complete as much as 1,100 square feet in one hour. In addition, the hydraulic-powered drum lowers and raises itself with the touch of a lever, to a depth of up to 8 inch into the surface.
