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.
