The MW500 is CJD Equipment ’ s innovative all-rounder for multiple milling applications in asphalt and concrete.

The back-up safety systems, intelligent controls, and perfect straight line of the Volvo MW500 Wheeled milling machines make them the technological yardstick in the half-metre class.

The MW500 milling machines permit milling widths of 80 to 500 mm, have a mechanically driven milling drum and are  fitted (as a standard feature) with the electronic anti-slip control(ASR).

With a patented Line Manager the milling machines travel as if being pulled along a ruler.

The fields of application of these wheeled milling machines include the widening of surfacing strips, partial lane repairs, connection work, free milling around manhole covers or even small slide covers.

The MW500 is the world's first milling machine with an Electronic Planer Management (EPM) system. The EPM control unit can be positioned to meet the optimum ergonomic setting for the operator. The driver can view all the relevant information at a glance on the large backlit LCD screen. Thanks to the hydraulic steering very tight steering angles can be achieved with ease, e.g. when the driver is milling a small radius around manhole covers.

With its three drive modes "working,manoeuvring, transport", the MW500offers allows drivers to preselect the travel speed and engine speed with the joystick, infinitely variable from standstill to the maximum speed.
