Wirtgen WR 240i

Dec. 13, 2016

The new WR 240i stands for top quality on every job. With a 6-cylinder Cummins engine rated at up to 477 kW / 608 PS, the new generation of Wirtgen cold recyclers and soil stabilizers are not only extremely powerful, but also cover a correspondingly large range of applications.

With the world's largest range of recycler and soil stabilizer products, Wirtgen can offer exactly the right solution for every application. The WR 240i is the fleet's specialist for powerfully stabilizing large areas of insufficiently cohesive soil. In cold recycling, it demonstrates its prowess in reusing resources 100% 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 optimized by powerful motorization 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° 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.

Technical 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.
