Traction, smooth ride and effective compaction force

The new line of 200 Series vibratory compaction rollers from Case Construction Equipment combine climbing ability, high centrifugal forces, 360-degree visibility and up to 36 hours of operation per fuel fill for the highest levels of performance.

The rugged line includes four single-drum vibratory units with operating weights from 15,741 to 31,553 pounds (7,140 to 14,325 kg) and engines from 100 to 148 hp (75 to 110 kW). The Case SV208, SV210, SV212 and SV216 give customers powerful solutions in compaction applications for road and highway construction, residential and commercial construction, waste management and rental. “These new Case rollers literally ‘make the grade’ because they efficiently handle imposing inclines,” said David Wolf, marketing manager at Case Construction Equipment. Case rollers come in a smooth-drum configuration for compaction of loose and semi-cohesive material and rock fill. The padfoot model is designed for semi-cohesive and cohesive materials. An optional shell kit is available for the smooth-drum model to convert it to a padfoot for maximum versatility. Drum widths range from 66 inches on the SV208 to 87 inches on the SV216.

Case SV200 Series rollers offer centrifugal forces from 29,225 to 73,125 pounds (130 to 325 kN), maximum working speeds up to 3.72 mph (6 kph), and the industry’s largest fuel tanks (69 to 108 gallons), providing up to 36 hours between refills.

The heavy-duty articulation and oscillation joint provides maneuverability with 36-degree articulation and ability to compact over uneven surfaces with 12-degree oscillation. Rugged and thick side plates protect the drum and machine, increasing productivity and machine longevity.

Gradeability is accomplished in large part by the 60/40 percent weight balance between the front and rear. The state-of-the-art hydrostatic drive to the drum and wheels transfers maximum power to keep the rollers moving. High traction, anti-slip control is standard on padfoot models and optional for smooth drum units.

The machines have planetaries instead of axles, lowering their centre of gravity and improving stability. The heavy-duty integral rear bumper has a high-capacity fuel tank built in, providing ballast for excellent traction and gradeability. The diamond-tread tires also have ballast for better traction.
