The SW994 double-drum compactor has an operating weight of 31,401 pounds with cab. The load on the front axle is 14,528 pounds and 14,903 pounds on the rear.
Low-profile vibration is 4,000 vpm, and operators can choose frequency and amplitude or no vibration from front or rear drum, independent of each other. A cross-mounted drive and vibration motor help to minimize drum edge marking.
The operator’s seat offers five positions ranging from front-facing to plus or minus 45 degrees and plus or minus 90 degrees, depending on working lane. To swivel the seat, operators simply depress the pedal at the lower right side to release the lock while sitting.
