BW161AD-4 HFThe view to the drums, drum edges and sprinkler systems from the operator's compartment of the BW161AD-4 HF is excellent, thanks to slanted drum-support legs and frame design. This new asphalt compactor, with an operating weight of 22,000 pounds, has a 66-inch-wide drum. It delivers 36,000 pounds of centrifugal force in low frequency (2,700 vpm) and 27,225 pounds in high (3,600 vpm). Large, swing-out panels just below the operator's station give wide-open access to the 131-hp Deutz diesel.
