Wirtgen’s new compact milling machines

Wirtgen continues to develop its compact milling machine range. Launched earlier this year, the W 100 Fi has been joined in the range by the new W 120 Fi and W 130 Fi compact milling machines. The W 100 Fi, W 120 Fi and W 130 Fi offer milling widths of 1m, 1.2m and 1.3m respectively, with power for all three models from a fuel-efficient, Tier 4 Final/Stage V compliant diesel rated at 265kW.

All three models offer high productivity and maximum cutting depths of 330mm, with the firm’s sophisticated digital assistance systems; Mill Assist, Wirtgen Performance Tracker (WPT) and Level Pro Active levelling.

In automatic mode, Mill Assist optimises milling performance and operating costs. This increases milling performance while reducing diesel, water, pick consumption and CO₂ emissions. This controls engine speed and provides a wide range of usable milling drum speeds for a range of applications. The low-speed range cuts fuel consumption and pick wear. The upper speed range delivers an optimal milling pattern, even with high performance rates. The operator can also select one of three operating strategies for each milling job: ECO, performance-optimised or milling pattern quality.

Compact dimensions and optimised machine weight make the machines easy to transport. High performance means that the machines can handle a range of applications including surface layer rehabilitation and pavement removal. The machines have the proven LEVEL PRO ACTIVE system offered previously on the large machines, offering automatic features such as automatic lifting for driving over manhole covers.

In addition, these compact mills can also be fitted with the firm’s newly developed operator cab, which is said to offer good visibility of the working area and sophisticated, ergonomic controls.
