Sakai SW880 Double-Drum Asphalt CompactorsExactCompact technology is built into the control panel on two updated high-frequency, higher-force, double-drum asphalt compactors introduced by Sakai. Once targeted impact spacing has been determined, the operators of the 79-inch-wide SW880 and 84-inch-wide SW990 simply adjust the ground speed until the green lights on the control panel are illuminated. This simplifies and speeds roller operation while ensuring proper impact spacing and thus compaction. Mat temperature-on-the-run, available as an option, is also displayed here. Sakai’s new AutoSpeed function memorizes the successful “green zone” settings to allow simplified, full-stroke lock-in at the forward-reverse control.
