Large milling machines in all weight and performance classes

They are the machines of choice for renewing expansive asphalt or concrete surfaces: Wirtgen's large milling machines.

The highest horsepower machines can do more than just remove asphalt or concrete pavements layer by layer down to a maximum working depth of 35 cm. They can also roughen surfaces, level substrates, produce plane surfaces with millimeter accuracy and remove tunnel floors. The variety of applications these large Wirtgen milling machines can handle is immense, as is the flexibility with which they can adapt to individual milling jobs Designed for high performance, they do their job with high productivity and cost-efficiency thanks to pioneering technologies.

Modern technology for diverse applications

The parallel-to-surface function (PTS) automatically positions the large milling machines parallel to the road surface, ensuring simple and flawless machine operation for high-quality profiling work. This automatic function carries out all the steps an operator would otherwise have to select individually. For instance, automating the process of lowering the machine into the milled cut helps to avoid excessive tool wear or even breakage when milling begins.

Another example is the Intelligent Speed Control System (ISC). Like a traction control system in a car, ISC minimizes spinning of the crawler tracks, enabling optimum traction in each one so that the machine can achieve its maximum possible milling performance. ISC displays its strengths most effectively on demanding milling jobs.

With its Operator Comfort System (OCS), Wirtgen sets new standards in operating convenience and user-friendliness. The hydraulic moving and swiveling cabin is the heart of OCS. It can be positioned quickly and effectively to give the machine operator the best possible view at all times. The high-quality equipment inside the cabin leaves nothing to be desired: Camera transmission, precision joystick control, and a powerful automatic climate control system provide for optimum working conditions in any weather.
