RD18 - Compact, maneuverable and powerful
Unilateral drum lifting point
Excellent compaction performance right up to the edge: With the unilateral lifting point of the drum, you have clear sided curb clearance that allows flush rolling on both sides and can move the roller directly up to walls or curbs. The re-compaction, e.g. with a rammer, is omitted.
Articulated pendulum joint
Uniform compaction, optimal driving stability: The three-point articulated pendulum joint ensures a uniform weight distribution on the front and rear drum at all times. This also improves the maneuverability and provides for maximum tipping safety and stability when turning curves.
Front and rear with vibration drums.
The vibration drum optimally brings the material to be compacted into oscillation with quick successive vertical forces. The built-in eccentric weight provides for a fast rotation and you get an excellent compaction performance.
All traditional compaction work
Vibration drum in the front, tires in the rear.
Even with the combination rollers, the forces are directed vertically downwards The advantage over tandem-axle rollers are the tires. That is why combination rollers always have very good traction on gradients.
Compaction work on gradients and in uneven ground conditions
Everything is perfectly within view: With the specially designed, tapered design of the roller, you always have an excellent view of the drum edges, the machine environment and the job site.
