Dimas Introduces Complete Family of Pavement Grinders and Groovers

OLATHE, Kan. - Dimas introduces a new line of pavement groovers and grinders featuring versatility and power in a compact design. Each offering a 12-inch blade capacity, and a ¾-inch maximum cutting depth combined with a self-propelled design, Dimas grinding and grooving machines offer the solution for a wide variety of grooving jobs including airport runways, highways, ramps, bridges, industrial floors, loading docks, pool decks, cattle pens and parking lots.

The Dimas PG 6522 grooving, texturing, and grinding machine offers an economical yet powerful grooving solution. Equipped with a 65-horsepower Wisconsin engine and a 21 ¾-inch cutting head, the PG 6522 provides ample power and productivity for tackling the grooving applications typically reserved for larger machines. An optional Dri-Trac(TM) slurry removal system enhances job site safety by quickly and efficiently removing the slurry byproduct. An ergonomically designed operator station provides easy access for all gauges, levers and controls.

In addition, an electro-hydraulic raise and lower control along with retractable groove guides ensure precise performance. A variable speed control in both forward and reverse offers precision control for both grooving and travel between jobs, ensuring maximum efficiency.

Powered by a 35-horsepower Wisconsin gas, or optional 30-horsepower Baldor electric motor, the PG 3514 combines power with a 14-inch wide cutting head to ensure high productivity. The unique design of the front wheels allows the machine to follow the contour of the pavement, providing a smoother surface and better transitions during grooving and grinding applications. An electro-hydraulic blade control feature enables instant and precise blade adjustments for maximum depth control up to ¾ inch. Incorporating a standard hydrostatic drive and Quadco speed control, the PG 3514 provides variable speed control for grinding, grooving and maneuvering. With an adaptable head, and an operating weight of 1,700 pounds, this unit offers the power and versatility to tackle a wide variety of applications. Versatility is further enhanced by adding an optional, easy-to-install bump grinding extension kit, which offers the flexibility to perform profile grinding.

Featuring a cutting head width of 8 inches and a 16-horsepower Briggs Vanguard engine, the PG 1608 grooving and texturing machine is the most compact in the Dimas family. The ideal solution for confined area applications such as cattle pen grooving, the PG 1608 is large enough to be efficient, yet small enough to groove hard-to-access areas. Featuring an adjustable grooving guide for either right- or left-side grooving and a standard blade depth control, the unit offers precise control in every application.
