As a market leader, Wirtgen offers the largest range of cold milling machines industry-wide with milling widths ranging from 14 mm to 4.40 m. Whether small, compact or large, the road rehabilitation specialist can supply a suitable cold milling machine for every application. The highlights of the 12 cold milling machines presented by Wirtgen include two world firsts, the W 120 Ri and the W 150 CFi.
A small machine that's big news
With a milling width of 1.2 m, the W 120 Ri is the first mobile rear-loading machine on wheels; together with the W 100 Ri, it rounds off Wirtgen's new generation of small milling machines. The W 120 Ri features the same operating concept as the W 35 Ri, W 50 Ri and W 60 Ri 50-cm class machines which are already successfully established on the market. This includes the multifunctional armrest that is so highly appreciated by machine operators. Numerous automatic and driver-assistant functions speed up the work processes and greatly relieve the machine operator in his everyday work. LEVEL PRO PLUS, the brand-new leveling system developed by Wirtgen, has been completely integrated into the machine control system, where it ensures a precise, high quality milled finish thanks to its simple intuitive operation. With its generously dimensioned conveyor system, the W 120 Ri can load the reclaimed asphalt pavement quickly and continuously, while its incredibly maneuverable wheeled chassis and the optional dynamic package which supports speeds of up to 7.5 km/h ensure rapid relocation of the machine between job sites.
Top of its performance class
The front loader W 150 CFi rounds off the new Compact Class from Wirtgen. Like the W 120 Ri, it features environmentally unbeatable engine technology in compliance with emission level EU Stage IV/US Tier 4 Final. The Compact Class combines the advantages of small milling machines – maneuvrability, one-man operation and flexibility – with the front-loading principle and the productivity of large Wirtgen milling machines. With working widths from 0.6-1.5 m and milling depths up to 330 mm, the complete machine series, which includes not only the W 150 CFi, but also the models W 130 CFi, W 120 CFi and W 100 CFi, stands out through its high performance and cost-efficiency.
The most powerful machine in the Compact Class, namely the W 150 CFi, is ideal for larger job sites where space is limited, such as in downtown areas. Particularly in such conditions, the sophisticated visibility system in combination with the camera systems help the machine operator to maneuver the cold milling machine. In the Compact Class too, the machine's simple and intuitive operation is based on a standardized operating concept, ensuring that all operators quickly feel at ease on every machine model. Perfect leveling is also assured, thanks to the LEVEL PRO PLUS system integrated into the compact milling machines. With an operating weight of 20.1 metric tons (MT), the W 150 CFi can normally be transported without requiring a special permit – another important aspect for both customers' and service providers' logistics.
Power packs for large jobs
Trade visitors can also look forward to the large milling machine class showcased by Wirtgen in Munich. From the W 200i, W 200 Hi, W 210i and W 220i to the W 250i, Wirtgen is presenting its complete machine range with milling widths from 2.00-4.40 m and milling depths up to 35 cm. The range of applications encompasses not only layer by layer removal of asphalt or concrete roadway pavements, but also roughening surfaces, leveling substrates, producing plane surfaces with millimeter accuracy and removing tunnel floors; the variety of jobs for which large Wirtgen milling machines can be used is immense, as is the flexibility with which they can be adapted to the individual milling jobs. The most powerful cold milling machine built by Wirtgen, the W 250i, is also being showcased. The W 250i has a standard milling width of 2.20 m and can optionally be extended to working widths of 2.50 m, 3.10 m, 3.50 m, 3.80 m or even 4.40 m when additional milling units are fitted.
