Wirtgen releases W 150 Fi compact milling machine

The new W 150 Fi milling machine from Wirtgen is its largest compact model yet

Wirtgen has released its W 150 Fi compact milling machine class. With a milling width of 1.8m, this model has been designed for use on large construction sites with restricted space, for example in inner city locations.

The machine has a nine-litre John Deere 315kW (422 horsepower) engine that is compliant with EU Stage 5 / US Tier 4 Final exhaust emission standards and has been specially adapted to meet the particular needs of cold milling applications.

Mill Assist, Wirtgen Performance Tracker (WPT) and the levelling system Level Pro Active assist the operator and increase milling efficiency, says Wirtgen.

In the case of the W 150 Fi, the largest model in the compact milling machine class, users also benefit from higher milling performance, increased efficiency and, thanks to an automatically-generated construction site report, clearly structured documentation of all site-relevant data.

In automatic mode, Mill Assist selects the operating strategy with the most favourable balance between milling performance and operating costs, modifying the engine speed to adapt to the application. This increases the milling performance while simultaneously reducing diesel fuel and water consumption, pick wear and CO2 emissions.

The operator can also preselect one of three working strategies: ‘Eco’, ‘performance-optimised’ or ‘milling pattern quality’. This makes it possible, for example, to pre-define the required milling pattern quality incrementally from coarse to very fine at the press of a button.

The machine has an improved basic configuration for the integration of 3D and laser levelling systems and a revised Multiplex system with 3-fold scanning. All sensors and measurement values are displayed in an easy-to-read format on the control panel in order to maximise process efficiency.

For improved visibility, the operator’s platform is laterally adjustable. A camera/monitor system with two to six cameras provides an overview of areas that are otherwise hard to see from the operator’s platform. An enclosed cabin is also available as an option.

The cold milling machine W 150 Fi is equipped with the wear-resistant quick-change toolholder system HT22 with the top part HT22 Plus. In combination with the new Generation X² round-shank picks, this reduces toolholder wear by up to 25 per cent, says Wirtgen.

Customers benefit from longer pick replacement intervals and the ability to quickly and easily change picks on-the construction site. The Multiple Cutting System quick-change system for milling drums enables rapid changes of the working width and provides flexibility.
