Comment on this model.

The Wirtgen WR 2000 XL Cold Recycler and Soil Stabiliser weighs around 25 tonnes.  This is the version of the machine tailored for the North American market with an 8ft drum.  However the real machine is usually configured without an enclosed cab.


The model comes in a Wirtgen box and is enclosed between polystyrene trays. 

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

The model comes with a simple instruction sheet. 


The wheels are metal with heavy chunky tyres having a deep tread.   Underneath the model the milling drum scales at rather less than the 8ft width of the real WR 2000 XL.  Individual picks are nicely modelled.

The large enclosed cab has a beacon light and mirror, painted lights, and wipers on the windows.  Inside, the cab detail is good.  Outside the cab the access platforms are anti-slip and perhaps too shiny.  The outer handrails are thin flexible plastic.

The engine bay has decent detailing with the casting.   The milling drum cover is metal and is a casting with good detailing and very sharp graphics.


Both axles have linked steering between the wheels and a reasonable angle can be achieved.

The milling drum rotates and there are adjustable flaps on the front and real edge.  The whole milling assembly can also be raised and lowered.

The cab can slide sideways, and the seat and controls can be rotated using a supplied key.


It has a high metal content with some use of plastic.

The paint and graphics are very good.


It is anticipated to be moderate value.


This model is derived from the earlier WR 2000 model introduced in 2006 and as such it is a reasonable model.  It appears to be a rebranded model for marketing purposes rather than reflecting the variations in the real machine.  As a model it appears to have very limited availability and so may be somewhat rare.


The model first appeared at the end of 2014.
