Sakai has introduced upgrades to three of its single-drum vibratory. The Sakai SV204, SV414TF and SV544FB now feature Tier 4 Final engines and enhanced capabilities as single-drum vibratory roller solutions in drum widths 54 to 84 inches. The upgraded designs are available with either smooth (D) or padfoot (T) drum, with smooth shell kits available for all models and either style, padfoot or smooth (DF and TF), on the SV544 A strike-off blade will be available across the line as well for the padfoot drum model (TB) and padfoot with shell-kit models (FB).

Since its inception in 1918, Sakai has grown to become a global leader in compaction equipment producing more than 4,000 vibratory compactors each year. Sakai has manufacturing facilities in four countries with sales and product support representing 110 countries worldwide.
Founded in 1976, Sakai America serves its customers through a strong dealer network across North America, supported by its manufacturing facilities and product support headquarters in Adairsville, Georgia. As a result of its dedication to quality, Sakai owns one of the strongest service records across America today.
Sakai America produces and supports high-force vibratory soil compactors and high-frequency vibratory asphalt rollers to the highest standards in the industry.
The new Sakai SW754, 67-inch vibratory tandem drum roller offers improved operating efficiency as well as ease-of-maintenance while retaining many of features of its successful 770-series line. Applications include both thin and thick asphalt lift compaction, as well as compaction of coarse graded asphalt mixes and aggregate base and subbase layers. EPA Tier 4 emissions compliance is achieved by an efficient 3.8 L Kubota engine offering up to 10 hours of actual run time without refueling.
Sakai America’s SA33L2-R Series Trench Rollers feature excellent compaction performance, a turn radius that cuts time spent on manholes in half, and a solid frame capable of surviving hurricanes. They are ideal for rental revenue opportunities. They are a well-built, durable, in-demand product that requires little maintenance.
Kevin Sawyer is a quality control technician for Martin Marietta, the largest HMA mix producer and paving contractor in Colorado. He has been working with asphalt for 14 years, following 16 years of aggregate experience.
It takes a special kind of asphalt roller to handle no-vibe paving jobs where structural integrity is a concern. Sakai’s solution to this problem is their ND Series, featuring oscillation and vibration in both drums.
SAKAI America’s 700 Series vibratory (HF) and nutating (ND) asphalt tandem rollers have a sleek look and increase paving productivity by achieving density with high amplitudes, or nutation mode while leaving smooth finishes on HMA surfaces.
SAKAI America’s new SW880 high-frequency vibratory asphalt roller increases paving productivity by achieving density faster while leaving smooth finishes on all mixes, even the most challenging Superpave projects.
Sakai’s 700 Series of vibratory asphalt rollers comes in two models, the SW770 and SW770HF. The SW770 offers one frequency (3,000 vpm) and two amplitude settings, low and high (.012 and .025 inches). The SW770HF has three frequency settings (up to 4,000 vpm) and the same two amplitude settings as the SW770. Both offer a drum width of 67 inches and are ideally suited for a wide variety of HMA projects, including streets, highways, airport runways and large parking lots.
Sakai’s fuel saver mode allows the operator to manually or automatically set the engine rpm depending on the application, while maintaining all of the vibration characteristics necessary for compaction and smoothness on the project. This mode is proving to have significant fuel savings.
The operator’s station, specifically the isolation deck of the 700 Series is similar to Sakai’s other roller models but has been enhanced to minimize vibration to the operator, which minimizes fatigue. The 700 Series also consists of a three-position, 180-degree rotating operator console with instrument panel and seat. This design ensures that all controls are easy to reach and gauges are easy to view no matter what position the console is in. The 700 Series also provides 360-degree visibility plus a great view of the drum edges from the operator’s seat. An optional side drum light offers added visibility during night paving.
Sakai America's SW990 double drum, high-frequency vibratory asphalt roller brings powerful performance to asphalt paving projects with its 4,000 vpm, Deutz engine and dual drum drive system. The SW990 offers a drum width of 84 inches and 4,000 vpm, which allows for 10 to 12 impacts per foot at 4.55 mph. This feature allows for faster rolling speeds while maintaining the proper impacts per foot to achieve compaction. The drums are also machined smooth and edges are rounded for a smooth mat surface. The SW990's powerful yet fuel efficient Deutz TCD2012L06-2V water-cooled, turbo-charged diesel engine boasts 166 hp. This engine fully complies with the current emission standards and is mounted on rubber isolators to absorb vibration. The SW990 also offers excellent traction with its dual drum drive system.
