In 1979, WIRTGEN built their first cold milling machine designed to provide the asphalt paving industry an innovative rehabilitation technique. Based on technology from the mining industry, these machines use dozens of carbide-tipped bits on a fast rotating drum to remove a specified thickness from the surface of an asphalt pavement. With the invention of the milling machine, asphalt contractors can now remove and replace a portion of the asphalt pavement, which has several key benefits.

Spring is almost here! This means you may begin to notice that the condition of your asphalt pavement is less than optimal. Minnesota winters are hard on asphalt parking lots, roadways, and trails, causing cracks to form or expand through freeze-thaw cycles. Spring is an excellent time to assess the condition of your asphalt pavements so you can start budgeting and preparing for any maintenance or rehabilitation your pavement may need this summer.
