Case Construction Equipment has introduced its first pneumatic-tire compactor, the PT240, an eight-wheeled machine designed for rolling hot-mix-asphalt surface treatments, such as chip-and-seal, as well as soil-stabilization applications. The PT240 has a compaction width of 78 inches and a fully ballasted operating weight of 52,910 pounds. With a turbocharged engine rated at 99 horsepower, the PT240 can operate on grades up to 25 degrees and on materials with high rolling resistance. The compactor features standard hydrostatic steering, independent axles, four-plus-four tire configuration (with 2-inch tire overlap), and automotive-style controls with left- and right-side operating positions.
