Continuing cutting cutter heads offer the advantage of evenly milling material that needs to be profiled or excavated without leaving breaks at center in between the two drums, or requiring the lateral movement of the excavator boom in order to mill residual surfaces, all to the benefit of time savings and working method.
The TFC 400 and TFC 600 cutter heads are designed respectively for 6-10 ton and 9-12 ton excavators.
Simex TFC 400, with its 18.5 kN of cutting force, is an attachment that can excavate small trenches for utilities installation, profile concrete surfaces and ably remove tree trunks in agricultural-forestry applications. Their relatively small size, combined with the use of ultra-radius excavators, provide the user with a highly productive attachment even when working in tight spaces, for example when demolishing small foundations.
Simex TFC 600 is the more powerful of the two attachments and is designed to take on heavier applications than the TFC 400. With a cutting force of 24.5 kN, this cutter head can be used to mill deteriorated layers of concrete structures, such as side walls and roofs of tunnels, and containment walls in road and highway settings. The TFC 600 is also ideal for profiling cut-off walls, and thanks to its size and that of the prime mover it is coupled with, it can be used in urban settings to perform trenching for utilities installation, e.g., branches of sewer systems or aqueducts.
