EN Renovation of dirt roads requires a reliable and durable work tool. This article includes the methodology of field and bench tests as well as the results of these tests and conclusions for cutters used for dirt road renovation. The main novelty of the research presented in this article was to determine the wear mechanisms occurring during field and laboratory tests, to determine the differences in wear levels and the cost of renovation of one kilometer of dirt road. Calculations of the efficiency of replacing these working elements and the cost of operating various cutters per km are also presented. The lowest mass loss was characterized by milling cutters Ø25 mm mounted on an expansion sleeve and amounted to 130 g. The dominant wear mechanism that was observed after the renovation of dirt roads was micro-scraping and micro-bruising. For this variant, the cost per 1 km of road renovation was also the lowest and amounted to about PLN 2.
