Atlas Copco’s Dynapac CT3000 tamping compactor is designed for large-volume work on cohesive and semi-cohesive soils. With an operating weight of 25 tons and an average production capacity of 1,046 cubic yards per hour, the unit is driven by a 260-horsepower Cummins turbo-diesel engine. The front oscillating axle works independently of the optional strike-off blade and the rigid rear axle. This enables the blade to work in a permanently level position and ensures uniform distribution of soil on any type of terrain, the company says. The square pads of the compacting drums have been optimized in size and pattern to maximize the energy transmitted to the soil for uniform compaction density with minimum scarification. Also, the drums are offset by the width of a pad so that the rear drum compacts areas that have not been compacted by the front drum. As a result, a double pass of the machine results in a compaction width of 14.5 feet.
The Hydro Magnet, designed to separate iron and steel from concrete waste for subsequent recycling, can be installed on a carrier with an existing uni-directional auxiliary circuit with a signal line to power and control the magnet, so there is no need for a generator or electric cables from the carrier.
The QAC 1200 generator features a Cummins QST30G5 diesel engine that is Tier 2 certified and provides an 1140 kVA/912 kW prime power rating (60 Hz).
