WIRTGEN WR 240 / Cold recycler


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The WR 240 is a cold recycler and soil stabilizer, capable of converting soil of poor bearing capacity into fully pre-compacted construction material, carrying even heavy vehicles. All components have been optimized with work and maintainability in mind. The cabin in front of the leading axle can be moved 400 mm beyond the right edge of the machine. In combination with a swiveling of the driver’s seat of 90°, the best view of the working components is achieved. The spacious cabin has been completely redesigned, focusing on ergonomics and operator comfort. The holistic design conveys the machine`s power and its multitasking-abilities.

The attention to detail in this appliance is striking, particularly since it is a special vehicle, an area that is still largely neglected. All of the individual elements are very handsome, while the configuration of the different materials has been thoroughly thought through to ensure the innovative and ergonomic nature of the product. In the category of special vehicles machines, the cold recycler simply stands out among the rest and deserves an iF award!
