220 SM(i) for Raw Material Extraction and Routing Operations
With a cutting width of 2,2 m and a cutting depth of up to 300 mm, the new 220 SM(i) Surface Miner is an ideal choice for the selective extraction of minerals, routing operations and infrastructure projects. A particular highlight of the 220 SM(i), which offloads extracted minerals in windrows, is its spacious ROPS/FOPS operator’s cabin. It can be heated or air-conditioned, and is soundproofed and isolated from vibrations. An operator-friendly multifunctional joystick controls all key functions of the machine.
Preview of the Successor to the 2500 SM
Sales of a further surface miner are scheduled to begin at the turn of the year. The highlight features of the new 280 SM(i), the direct successor to the 2500 SM, include a slewable operator’s cabin. The industry-leading technological innovations of the 280 SM(i) work together to ensure high overall productivity and cost-efficiency.
Product Line Expansion
Wirtgen will be adding more new models to its range of surface miners. The first of these will be the 260 SX(i), which is not designed primarily for traditional mining applications, but also for use in large-scale infrastructure projects such as the construction of railroads, drainage canals, freeways and highways, and the enlargement of tunnels.
