Comment on this model.

The Wirtgen W 100 CFi Cold Milling Machine is generally used for removing asphalt paving surfaces prior to relaying. 

It weighs around 19 tonnes and can handle a milling width of 1000mm and milling depths of up to 330mm.


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

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

The model is complete with no assembly required.  There are a couple of extra cutters which can be swapped, and there are a spare beacon light is included.  There is no information describing its model's features or the real machine. 


The shaped rubber tracks are tiny and are yellow to match the tracks supplied on the real machine, and the tiny frames are detailed and have scrapers attached.  The extending legs are metal. 

Under the body the mill is visible and there is a rubber discharge belt.

The body is a nice casting with deep grilles and panel handles are highlighted with silver paint.  The operator's area is high quality with fine metal handrails and a textured floor.  It has a detailed coloured control panel and the metal canopy has a structure underneath which is another nice detail.  Under the engine cover the engine is detailed in plastic.

The milling drums are excellent.  They are metal and three varieties are included.  Each has detailed picks tipped with paint.

The main conveyor has a metal structure with a textured canopy to represent tarpaulin and it has good graphics applied.  The conveyor belt is rubber and the whole structure is supported by thin metal wire guy ropes.

The Wirtgen livery and graphics look realistic.


The rubber tracks can be forced to roll by hand but are very stiff.  The frames pivot and are mounted on legs which are extendible to raise the height of the machine.  One leg also rotates out from the body, and the front crawlers are steerable.

The canopy can be lowered to reduce the transport headroom.

A service platform at the rear can be raised and lowered.

An opening door provides access to the milling drum, which rotates on its mounting.  The milling drums are interchangeable.

The engine cover opens and can remain open.

The conveyor rotates from side to side and can be raised and lowered.


It is high quality with a high metal content. 

The paint and graphics are very good.


It is good value for the quality and functionality offered.


This is model is largely updated from the previous W 100F version.  It remains an excellent model of a cold planer with very good functionality.


The model first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2009 in Wirtgen colours as a W 100F.  This new
version was released for the Bauma Exhibition 2016
