Balanced three-wheel static roller

The R2H is a balanced three-wheel static roller that develops 365 pounds of force per linear inch across its 83-inch rolling width. Precise tracking, combined with a built-in drum overlap, means even coverage and compaction effort no matter where the machine goes. Adding water ballast enables the machine to work on thicker lifts or even soil compaction jobs. Traction and gradability are improved and the torque helps pull the mix under all three drums for blemish-free compaction.

It is useful for paving bridge decks, city streets and large parking areas, and can pinch a longitudinal joint.

Light and Power In One Tower

L20 Light Tower
L20 Light Tower

Doosan Portable Power offers a combination light tower and mobile generator with the Doosan L20. This model anchors the Doosan Portable Power lighting systems portfolio and provides a single solution for two important jobsite needs, power and light.

The L20 is ideal for mining, oil and gas exploration and a multitude of other environments where there is no reliable power source present. Traditional light towers only provide enough power for the light source. However, the L20’s 32-horsepower Mitsubishi diesel engine and 20-kilowatt generator make it the most flexible and powerful light tower in the Doosan line, with enough power to light a wide area while simultaneously providing up to 16 kilowatts of energy to power jobsite trailers, power tools, heaters and more.
