WR 250 is Powerhouse of In-Place Recycling

The new WR 250 from Wirtgen America Inc. is the powerhouse of Wirtgen cold in-place recyclers and soil stabilizers, and was introduced to North America at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2014 in Las Vegas.

The Wirtgen WR 250 is the highest-performance machine of the new WR generation. Thanks to its high engine output and optimal traction, the WR 250 can work its way effortlessly through heavy soils or existing failed pavements, homogeneously mixing or performing in-place cold recycling with dry lime or dry cement, or lime or cement slurry, or asphalt emulsion.

When equipped, the WR 250 also can perform in-place foamed asphalt or foamed bitumen recycling of existing failed pavements.

With an engine output of 766 hp, the WR 250 functions effortlessly at a width of 7 ft., 11 in. (2400 mm) and at a depth of up to 22 in. (560 mm) through difficult soils or pavements..

The cutting drum design is tailored to the high performance of the WR 250, resulting in exceptional mixing quality and speeds. Using the sensitive multifunction joystick on the right armrest, the operator can simply and comfortably control all important base functions.

Automated processes, such as automatic lowering and raising of the milling and mixing rotor, the ergonomically designed workplace, and the innovative reverse assistant also provide enhanced productivity.

A mobile, glassed-in, large-capacity cab, work zone camera system, and 90-deg rotating driver's seat ensure the best visibility conditions of both the WR 250 and the construction site.

The WR 250 is the largest machine of the new WR generation, which merges high-performance, economic efficiency and simple handling into a productive package.
