Wirtgen launches new generation of cold recyclers and soil stabilisers in India
WR 240: numerous new features put it at the top of the class in terms of efficiency and economy
The new WR 240 stands for top quality on every job. With a 6-cylinder Cummins engine rated at up to 455 kW / 619 PS, the new generation of Wirtgen cold recyclers and soil stabilisers are not only extremely powerful, but also cover a correspondingly large range of applications, scoring especially with performance, user-friendliness and end-product quality – both in stabilising heavy and swampy soil and in recycling large-scale roads.
New standards in cold recycling and soil stabilisationWith the world’s largest range of recycler and soil stabiliser products, Wirtgen can offer exactly the right solution for every application. The WR 240 is the fleet’s specialist for powerfully stabilising large areas of insufficiently cohesive soil. In cold recycling, it demonstrates its prowess in reusing resources 100 per cent when processing defective asphalt pavements. Numerous new features put it at the top of the class in terms of efficiency and economy. Machine output has been optimised by powerful motorisation with high torque reserves while engine power is transmitted directly and effectively, benefiting its milling performance. Nine different rotor speeds guarantee optimum mixing performance, aided also by ultramodern computer-controlled metering technology with automatic monitoring to ensure exactly the right mix.
A spacious modern cabin with camera system and a driver’s seat that can be turned through 90-degree ensure that the machine operator always has a clear all-round view of the machine and the job site. The cabin with large windows can be displaced beyond the right-hand edge of the machine, permitting a perfect and direct view of the milled edge. All-wheel steering and a separate steering angle on the rear axle ensure an extremely small turning radius permitting swift manoeuvring at the end of short passages and in confined spaces.
Intuitive operation for maximum performanceTechnical improvements focus not only on driving comfort, but also on easy operation. As a result, the operator can now control all the main basic functions easily and conveniently via the highly responsive multi-functional joystick in the right-hand armrest. Automated processes, such as automatic lowering and raising of the milling and mixing rotor, the ergonomically designed workplace and the innovative reverse assist function, make life vastly more convenient for the operator and improve daily performance.
