The Volvo MT2000 is a four-track, front-load, half-lane milling machine powered by a 610-horsepower Tier 3 Cummins engine. The Volvo MT2000 offers three distinct engine and drum cutting speeds selectable from the operator’s panel.

The high-speed selection is available for maximum travel speed on shallow cutting depths. The Volvo MT2000 can run both 78.74-inch (2 000 mm) and 86.02-inch (2 185 mm) wide drums.The new Volvo MW500 is a four-wheel, rear-loading, utility-class milling machine that offers a standard cutting width of 19.69 inches (500 mm). Because of its compact size and maneuverability, ideal applications include patching, joints, trenching and close cutting around street and roadway obstructions. The four-wheel Volvo MW500 has an extremely tight cutting radius of 7.87 inches (200 mm).
