Featuring a new traction control system that can effectively put these 84-inch-wide single-drum soil compactors to work on slopes up to 62 percent, new Sakai SV510-III Series rollers feature patented shock isolation systems that are completely independent of the drum drive system.
The triangular track drive system on Sakai’s CV550 single-drum vibratory roller can climb 45-degree slopes while compacting.
Ammann's ASC Series of single-drum compactors includes six basic models, plus heavy-duty variants of each, all available in smooth-drum or padfoot configurations. The ASC models feature two amplitudes and two frequencies, and heavy-duty models incorporate a high-performance hydraulic system, anti-slip control and tire ballast.
The Hypac C810C Series single-drum rollers feature two amplitudes and an "optimized frequency," providing "maximum compaction results on the widest range of soil types," says the manufacturer. The smooth-drum model (C815C) is designed for work on granular and mixed-soil applications.
The Sakai SV505 Series vibratory soil compactor is available in either a smooth-drum (SV505D) or padfoot-drum (SV505T) configuration. These two models, each with an 84-inch drum, have operating weights of 23,525 and 24,320 pounds, respectively.
