    Wirtgen new Generation Z² round-shank picks

    The demands on cutting tools for environmentally friendly cold recycling and effective soil stabilisation are extremely varied. Important, amongst other things, are high cutting performance, extreme impact resistance and particularly high resistance to wear. With the new, hard-wearing Generation Z² round-shank picks, Wirtgen sets new standards in terms of durability, safety and cost-effectiveness.

    Field-proven wear plate with grooved profile increases cost-effectiveness

    Thanks to high resistance to impacts and shank fracturing, and best possible protection of the pick holder, the new Wirtgen Generation Z2 cutting tools for cold recyclers and soil stabiliaers deliver impressive performance in all materials.

    The newly developed wear plate with a special grooved profile improves centering, and demonstrably optimises rotation behaviour. This ensures that the carbide tip is always ready to cut and guarantees best possible carbide utilisation.

    In addition, the grooved profile reduce longitudinal wear of the round-shank pick holder and extends service life by up to 25%.

    Higher load capacity and reliability

    Cold recyclers and soil stabilizers benefit from the innovative cutting technology of the new Generation Z2 round-shank picks from Wirtgen.

    To ensure permanently secure clamping of the pick in the pick holder, Generation Z² picks all feature the field-proven TwinStop clamping sleeve from Wirtgen. The optimised composition of the carbide tip with a high proportion of cobalt guarantees even higher resistance to the most extreme impact loads.

    Key technology for more efficient machine performance

    Wirtgen sees high saving potentials for users in the further development of its innovative cutting technologies. The perfect interplay of machines and high-performance cutting tools is an essential factor in the maximization of efficiency in daily on-site operations. The use of the new Generation Z² round-shank picks further increases operational reliability. In addition, higher machine utilization rates and higher productivity reduce operating costs and improve efficiency.
