Wirtgen's fast-change system (FCS) for milling machines allows milling drums to be changed in about 2 hours. It's an option on the company's small W 600 DC; medium-class W 1000 F, W 1200 F and W 1300 F; large W 1900 and W 2000; and the W 2200. With FCS it's possible, for example, to mill a 36-inch-wide trench 12 inches deep with a W 1200 F in the morning, and to use the same machine to fine mill a working width of 48 inches with a tool spacing of 2½ inches in the afternoon.
