Wirtgen debuts the latest generation of milling machines at ConExpo 2020

ConExpo 2020 Silver Lot booth S5419 will showcase more than 30 Wirtgen Group machines, and include 10 global introductions.

Headlining the booth will be Wirtgen’s latest generation of large milling machines, including the world premiere of the W 220 Fi and the W 250Fi intelligent F Series models. Making their North American debuts are the W 207 Fi and W 210 Fi milling machines, as well as the W 380 CRi cold recycler.

The new models serve a wide range of applications at a maximum milling depth of 350-degrees mm/14 inches – including surface course rehabilitation and fine milling work up to complete surface removal. The 801-horsepower W 220 Fi is equipped with a two-speed Dual Shift to powershift transmission, while the 1,010-horsepower W 250 Fi has an Active Dual Power dual-engine drive.

A standard feature on the F Series models is Mill Assist. In the automatic mode, the system improves milling performance while reducing diesel, water and pick consumption, as well as carbon dioxide emissions. Operators also can fine-tune the machine’s performance, pre-selecting milling texture from on a scale of one (course) to 10 (very fine).

Mill Assist automatically controls the two-speed Dual Shift powershift transmission and milling drum speeds can be increased or decreased. Lower speeds enable reductions in fuel costs and pick wear. Higher speeds ensure a high milling pattern quality, says Wirtgen.

The Wirtgen Performance Tracker calculates the precise surface milling performance, milling volume and consumption values for the machine. Machine performance data is displayed on the operator’s platform in real-time; reports are automatically generated after the milling work.

Wirtgen’s W 210 Fi milling machine will debut in North America at ConExpo.

Additional debuts

Vögele will be unveiling its software-based application WITOS Paving Docu. This is designed specifically for contractors who want to capture and analyze more data than just the paving temperature but don’t need the full scope of WITOS Paving Plus.

Hamm will unveil its new HP 180i pneumatic tired roller, the DV+ 90i VV-S tandem roller, and the H 20i C P remote-controlled compactor with Padfoot drum, new thrust shield, and enhanced grade ability.

Kleeman will display the MOBICAT MC 120 Z PRO jaw crusher and the MOBISCREEN MS 952 EVO mobile screening plant.
