    Does anyone have any experience around one of these 100m mills? How do they perform? Do they have enough power with only 225 hp? Any thought on these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    They do okay, I like the wirtgen's better. They tend to be hard to work on and get parts for since they're a Italian machine.

    They try but they don't know much, so sometimes you're on your own.

    The PM 102 has the power to perform for a 1m mill I do have issues with getting the leg barrel to fold in and out a bit of an electrical nightmare just remember its really a Bittelli and parts can take awhile to get
