High productivity for Wirtgen’s mid-size planer
Wirtgen is introducing more productive mid-sized mills
The W 100 CFi, W 120 CFi and W 130 CFi from Wirtgen are front loading models that are designed for versatility and high productivity. The W 100 CFi delivers high output and a spokesperson for the firm said, “It’s the most powerful machine in its class and milling output has been increased by 15%.”
Power comes from a Tier 4 Final/Stage IV compliant diesel rated at 261kW and which is also economical on fuel, while it features a narrow chassis that is said to help optimise visibility. The operator platform can also be moved hydraulically 200mm to the side to provide a better view of the milling drum and the front right-hand crawler. Meanwhile a CCTV system provides visibility of the left-hand milled edge and material discharge.
As with the smaller machines, the LEVEL PRO PLUS system ensures optimum milling quality. The operator benefits from a high visibility, colour screen that displays all relevant working parameters. The machine is said to be easy to operate and manoeuvre in tight spaces as well, due to a mechanism that allows the right-hand rear track to be swivelled.
The machine also has a large conveyor offering a slewing angle of 60° to the left or right, which is of use when working on curves or in constricted areas. The firm also says that for more precise loading, the machine operator can slew the conveyor at two different speeds.
