What do you, and especially the people who work with them, appreciate most about the cold recyclers and soil stabilizers?
Neil Ryan: The first thing you notice about the WR machines is their high quality – their proverbial “German engineering”. There numerous functions and features that make handling much easier and reduce the users’ workload. Above all, however, Wirtgen was the first manufacturer in the construction industry to share our dedication to delivering only the highest quality. The build-quality of the WR machines is considerably better and more robust than that of all the other machines we have ever used. And I’m talking about a really wide range of brands we’ve worked with in the past – none of which got even close to the quality of our Wirtgen equipment.
Kelly Crowder: As the guy responsible for our equipment, what interests me most about a construction machine is, of course, its availability for the job it’s supposed to do. From my experience, there’s nothing that gets even anywhere near to Wirtgen equipment. Our WR 240i machines are rugged and reliable and do a fine job on every project. In the past, before we upgraded to WRs, we often took a pair of the machines we had along to the project site, because we never knew whether one alone would make it through a whole day.
Today, we’re happy to have left that way behind us. We have absolute trust in Wirtgen, even under the toughest conditions. We just love to get out and play in the dirt with our WRs!
