During North America’s largest construction equipment exposition, Wirtgen Group displayed 41 machines – most of them new i-series products – at Conexpo-Con/Agg.
At its stand, Wirtgen America occupied 39,600-sq. ft. where it displayed new asphalt pavers of all sizes from Vögele, concrete slipform pavers, cold mills and recyclers from Wirtgen, asphalt and soil compactors from Hamm, and mobile crushers from Kleemann.
New Tier 4 interim- and Final-compliant equipment from Wirtgen Group featuring intelligent technology – designated “i-series” models – dominated the 41-machine exhibit at Conexpo.
Of note was the big new Super 2100-3i with AB 600-3 TP2 screed, successor to the Super 2100-2. It will be displayed being fed by a Wirtgen 3800 CR recycler, simulating cold in-place recycling. Another highlight was a new 10-ft. Vision 5200-2i track paver with VR 600 rear-mount screed, and Vision 5203-2i wheel paver with VF 600 front-mount screed.
Hamm’s new H i-series of soil compactors were displayed with a twist: the exciting new H 25i VC – a single-drum vibrating compactor outfitted with specially designed teeth that will break concrete more effectively than special-purpose guillotine, “finger” or ultrasonic concrete breakers.
Among the new Hamm tandem smooth-drum compactors on display, the new Compact Line HD 12 VO featured both Oscillation and vibration compaction for the first time in a small roller.
Wirtgen’s largest cold mill, the new Tier 4 Interim W 250i was shown accompanied by the very special W 200 Hi, an innovative cold mill with hydraulic drum drive instead of conventional belt drive, and milling drum assembly which can move laterally.
Kleemann introduced four new products at Conexpo-Con/Agg. Two new crushers first seen at Bauma 2013 in Munich – the MC 110 Ri EVO and MC 110 Zi EVO mobile jaw crushers – were introduced to North America. Joining them on the stand were two new Kleemann impact crushers -- the MR 110 ZSi EVO 2 and MR 130 Zi EVO 2. All four machines are Tier 4 Final-compliant.
