The standard enclosed cab is pressurized and includes three stages of shock isolation to protect the operator from excess debris, vibration and noise pollution. Climate control, AM/FM radio, adjustable suspension seat and hydrostatic steering are also standard.
Duffy said there was another key benefit of the LiuGong 612H that his operators enjoy. “The roller has a three-piece shell kit that can easily be put on or taken off in under two hours. All you need is two people – an operator and mechanic – to get the job done and the machine back to work.” This feature is particularly useful for customers who may want to switch between the smooth drum and the optional bolt-on sheepsfoot shell.
Keam said Howlett Development is so pleased with their two LiuGong rollers, that they are now considering the purchase of a LiuGong excavator, as well as several smaller machines like their popular skid-steer loaders.
