Wirtgen Flexible Cutter System adds versatility to cold milling machines

For contractors seeking more versatility from their cold milling machines, Wirtgen’s new Flexible Cutter System will permit operators to change drums of different working widths — with tool holders fitted — in less than three hours on the jobsite. A hinged side plate covering the drum housing is removed, revealing the existing drum, which is removed with an extraction device. The existing drum is placed on a mounting trolley and pulled out of the housing. A different width drum is then wheeled into place using a trolley, the adjustable scraper blade is reconfigured and the machine is ready to go to work.
