Wirtgen’s dual engine planer aims for roads and runways

Road recycling equipment specialist Wirtgen used Conexpo to introduce the W250, its largest and most sophisticated cold mill for road planing, which is capable of removing up to 1,200t of asphalt per hour.

The machine incorporates the firm’s “dual engine concept”, which allows milling with one engine at 610hp or with two engines at powerful 980hp. It is also equipped with a machine management system that eases
the workload of the operator and guarantees fuel efficient and environmentally compatible milling.

The W250 is aimed at large job sites like dual lane highways and airport runways, and can remove asphalt layers and concrete pavements with a milling depth of up to 350mm.

Sister company Hamm showed off its new HD+ 110 VO 1,676mm tandem roller, which has an operating weight of 10.4t and features conventional vibration and Hamm’s oscillation compaction.
