Case has launched a new, four model series of small-frame vibratory rollers.
Available in both double drum and combination (front drum with rear pneumatic tires) configurations, the machines are easy to transport and ideal for working in residential and commercial construction applications where the operator may encounter tight quarters, curbs, structures and other obstacles.
Designed with a high curb clearance, no overhangs and a drum width of 94 cm, the compact DV Series rollers are ideal for walkways, residential driveways, bike paths, tennis courts and small parking lots.
The drums can be offset to further improve accessibility, and to improve performance during turns.
Visibility is improved with an adjustable work station that allows the operator to get the best vantage point down to the drums.
The DV Series combine a compact size with many of the same features found in larger compaction machines.
A 33.5 hp Tier 4 Final engine delivers high centrifugal forces and frequencies at lower rpms, making the machine more fuel efficient, while selectable dual frequencies of 3,480 or 3,960 vpm improve productivity and allows operators to meet the compaction needs of the job.
The new vibratory roller models include:
- DV23D asphalt roller: 33.5 hp and 2,231 kg
- DV23CD combination roller: 33.5 hp and 2,087 kg
- DV26D asphalt roller: 33.5 hp and 2,490 kg
- DV26CD combination roller: 33.5 hp and 2,345 kg
Operators may also choose between either automatic or manual vibration engagement to meet their preference and to help avoid damage to the asphalt during starts and stops, while the offset tapered drums reduce asphalt tearing during operation around curves. The units come standard with a 189 litre water tank with a pressurized water system to ensure consistent water spray to the drum.
DV Series rollers are compatible with the Case Ace Force intelligent compaction system — a technology designed to improve compaction quality, requiring fewer passes to reach target specs.
Ace Force also generates reports for applications where exact specifications and records of compaction performance are required.
DV Series rollers feature an iso-mounted operator platform that minimizes vibration and reduces operator fatigue. A standard lateral-sliding seat provides operators with a clear view to the drum edges on both sides of the machine.
Like all Case machines, the new rollers are designed for groundline serviceability. All fluid ports, drains and service checkpoints are grouped on one side of the machine for simplified maintenance.
