Additional features make the work easier
Greater cost-efficiency with FCS: The "Flexible Cutter System" or FCS for short allows the milling drum to be changed quickly and easily. The milling drums on these cold milling machines can be accessed from the side and are simple to remove. It is lowered onto a drum carriage for easy withdrawal from the housing. The new drum is installed just as easily.
Quick tool changes allow the owner to use the machine for a whole variety of jobs. Several FCS drums with different working widths and tool spacings are available for the W 200. A drum change takes no more than two hours and the cold milling machine is transformed from a standard machine to a super-fine milling machine. The FCS greatly increases flexibility, creating a host of new potential uses and considerably boosting the machine's cost-efficiency.
Easy levelling: LEVEL PRO supplies information on the levelling process and allows the operator to control the milling depth without leaving his platform. Intuitive, ergonomically designed operation with user-friendly graphic displays and function keys are hallmarks of the system. A controller analyses the data from various plug-in sensors, controls the machine's height adjustment and transmits the corresponding data to the control console. Outstanding milled results are constantly assured by the software with optimized control characteristic.
WIDRIVE: The interaction between key components – diesel engine, travel drive, milling drum drive and belt drive, water spray system and height adjustment – is centrally managed by Wirtgen's intelligent WIDRIVE machine control system. In this way, WIDRIVE automates many functions which would normally be performed manually by the operator, thus permitting fuel-saving, environmentally-friendly milling operations.
PTS - always parallel to the surface: The proprietary PTS system developed by Wirtgen guarantees precise adherence to the set working depth while relieving the operator to the greatest possible extent. PTS stands for "parallel to surface" and automatically ensures that the machine is dynamically aligned parallel to the road surface.
The front and rear crawler tracks are uniformly lowered in parallel. As part of the PTS system, a 4-fold full-floating axle immediately compensates any unevenness on the right and left, thus ensuring automatic alignment of the machine at right angles to the direction of travel. PTS also includes an automatic backup function for resuming at the required milling depth. In this way, machine operation is greatly simplified while maintaining the high levelling quality.
