The most powerful of Chicago Pneumatic's vibratory reversible plate compactors is the new 1,080-lb. MV500, with centrifugal force rating of 13,489 lbf. Hydraulic steering and vibration-dampened handles help make the machine maneuverable and easy to operate for long periods. The compactor is powered by a Hatz diesel engine and uses Hardox 400 steel compaction plates.
Atlas Copco's 3,700-lb. LP8504 vibratory trench roller is controlled by Bluetooth radio communication that allows individually paired transmitter/receivers to reduce the risk of cross-control when multiple units are working at the same site.
The CR 6 H reversible soil compactor is suited for use in trenches or backfills, road construction, civil engineering or landscaping. Its standard operating width is 24 in., with 18-in. and 28-in. versions available. The 906-lb. unit is equipped with a Hatz diesel engine (type 1 B 40), and delivers a compaction force of 11,250 lbs to the soil. It achieves a compaction depth of up to 24 in. depending on soil conditions. A hydraulic and highly variable shifter is provided for forward and reverse travel. The optional COMPATROL-CCD and -MSM control systems enable job completion using up to 25% fewer compaction passes.
The largest of BOMAG's reversible plates, the BPR100/80D is a powerful compactor designed for large projects. It offers contractors and rental customers a faster working speed and greater compaction force, as well as advanced productivity and control features. Ideal for work on granular, cohesive and mixed soils, the BPR100/80D features a 14.75-horsepower Hatz air-cooled diesel engine. Its new vibratory exciter design provides a maximum working speed of 88.6 feet per minute, and a gradeability of 35 percent. Maximum vibration frequency is 3,360 vibrations per minute, and centrifugal force is 22,500 pounds. Both vibration frequency and centrifugal force are easily adjusted using the throttle control. Heavy-duty wear-resistant base plates feature reinforced edges and have a working width of 25 inches. It also comes standard with BOMAG's exclusive Economizer system. By detecting soil stiffness, the Economizer system provides an accurate overview of soil compaction status. It allows jobs to be completed more quickly, with up to 25 percent fewer passes, saving fuel costs and reducing machine wear. The Economizer system also helps the operator achieve optimum compaction by avoiding over-compaction and identifying and eliminating soft spots.
