Operating principle small milling machines
A small milling machine with rear loading - here`s how it works by the example of W 50 R / W 50 Ri
Small milling machines are equipped with wheel units and a milling drum arranged at the rear of the machine. A slewing conveyor is also arranged at the rear of the machine, accepting the asphalt material granulated by the rotating milling drum and discharging it directly onto waiting trucks. This is why small milling machines are also called rear loaders. The compact rear loaders have been designed for one-man operation. In addition, they are usually extremely manoeuvrable machines, and their right-hand rear wheel can be pivoted in front of the milling drum. Engine performance in this machine class ranges from approx. 40 kW / 55 PS to appr ox. 160 kW / 220 PS.
