Leadership Through Passion: Presenting the New Generation of Small Milling Machines From Wirtgen

July 8, 2014

Wirtgen GmbH presents its new generation of small milling machines with the market launch of the W 50 Ri and W 60 Ri cold milling machines. The entirely new and striking design harbours a cornucopia of technical innovations that result in enhanced performance, greater productivity and maximum ease-of-operation.

Our goal is to provide our customers with fit-for-purpose solutions which will always enable them to execute their jobs economically and on time, achieving the best possible quality. This traditional Wirtgen maxim was also reflected in the development of the new W 50 Ri and W 60 Ri machines. The numerous highlights of the half-metre milling machines come into play in every working step, offering immense customer benefit.

Innovations in operation: Faster, better, more comfortable

The countless auxiliary and automatic functions not only speed up work processes, but also significantly reduce the strain on the machine operator in day-to-day operations. Wirtgen’s brand new in-house development LEVEL PRO PLUS (a levelling system), which is fully integrated in the machine control system, supports intuitive and simple operation to produce precise and high-quality milling results. The pre-set target value for the milling depth (max. 210 mm for both models) is precisely controlled by robust displacement sensors in the hydraulic cylinders mounted on the side plates and displayed on the high-resolution LEVEL PRO PLUS colour display.

The slimline chassis was designed specifically to provide an unobstructed view of the milling edge to the front as well as of the left and right side plates, while the compact suspension of the loading conveyor affords an unhindered view of the milled area behind the machine.
