Plantworx 2015 Preview
The Wirtgen Family On Show At Plantworx
With eight machines, Wirtgen Limited, the Wirtgen Group’s UK sales and service subsidiary will be showcasing the groups latest innovative solutions for road construction and rehabilitation at the Plantworx trade show.
Alongside the key exhibit, the W 50 Ri, which is Wirtgen's latest 50-cm milling machine, visitors can also view two "Dash 3" generation pavers from Vögele and five rollers from the compaction specialist, Hamm.
Brand new to the UK market.
The W 50 Ri is a member of Wirtgen's new small milling machine generation and will be unveiled to trade experts at the show. The entirely new design incorporates a host of technical innovations to enhance performance, increase productivity and simplify operation.
Wirtgen have developed a brand new in-house levelling system, LEVEL PRO PLUS, which is fully integrated into the machine control system, supports intuitive and simple operation to produce precise and high-quality milling results.
A generous steering angle to either side and the automatic steering function of the rear right hand wheel when folded in, results in an extremely small turning radius that makes working on tight job sites so much easier.
Furthermore, three individually variable milling drum speeds each ensure an ideal milling performance for a broad range of applications. Using the W 50 Ri can speed up completion of a project by as much as 20%.
Vögele Pavers And Hamm Rollers Also Guarantee Success
The new Vögele SUPER 800-3i tracked paver from the Mini Class is being unveiled at Plantworx as a first time UK exhibit.
It is accompanied by the well-established wheeled SUPER 1303-3i. This highly advanced paver features an extremely compact design and superb manoeuvrability. It has a basic width of 1.8 m and an overall length of just 4.95 m. This makes the Compact Class asphalt paver ideal for tight job site conditions.
Exhibits from the Hamm range of compaction equipment include the Hamm H 13i vibratory soil compactor, with an operating weight of 13t. This soil compactor offers extraordinary manoeuvrability, ability to handle steep slope angles and ease of operation.
Accompanying this machine is the 9-t HD+ 90i VV tandem roller. The operator has an extra-large and comfortable cab that enables him to concentrate on the work at hand for longer periods.
