Description: Special Report
Summary: A Gurries field planer was tested at Houghton, Michigan as a means of leveling processed snow to produce a trafficable surface. The unit was a tow-type, hydraulically controlled, automatic leveler, used normally as a finish planer for airfield and highway construction work. It was modified to include skis for work in snow. The initial tests indicated the need for several modifications. They included a manual cross-slope and blade-height control, ski adjustment, and an adjustable hydraulic valve. After these modifications were made, the planer was again tested and found to be a satisfactory implement for leveling processed snow.
