Volvo’s announces milling machine, the MT2000
Volvo has introduced MT2000, 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. The low-speed selection provides higher torque at a lower engine rpm to power through tough material.
The standard cutting speed is used to provide maximum horsepower and efficiency. The Volvo MT2000 can run both 78.74-inch (2 000 mm) and 86.02-inch (2 185 mm) wide drums.
The MT2000 offers four-track system with features to improve milling performance; has an independently controlled gathering and discharge conveyors with speed adjustment to meet cutting drum capacity; dual operating stations with advanced technology in intuitive operator panels; flexibility to control both sides of machine and front or rear from one grade and slope control panel; and serviceability through a walk-in engine compartment.
The Volvo MW500 is a four-wheel, rear-loading, milling machine that offers a cutting width of 19.69 inches (500 mm).
