Doosan Infracore Portable Power

Doosan Infracore Portable Power offers its BX Series of vibratory plate compactors, which feature maneuverability on the jobsite, compaction in confined areas and fold-over handles that provide ease of storage. All six models are powered by Honda four-cycle engines at 3,600 rpm, with recoil start engineered to provide years of dependable operation. These compactors are used for the compaction of granular soils, crushed aggregates and hot-mix asphalt on small- to large-sized open jobsites.

The Case lineup of 200 Series vibratory compaction rollers combines climbing ability, high centrifugal forces, 360-degree visibility and up to 36 hours of operation per fuel fill. Designed to efficiently handle imposing inclines, the SV208, SV210, SV212 (pictured) and SV216 models give customers solutions in compaction applications for road and highway construction, residential and commercial construction, waste management and rental. Case rollers come in a smooth-drum configuration for compaction of loose and semi-cohesive material and rock fill and a padfoot model designed for operating in semi-cohesive and cohesive materials. An optional shell kit is available for the smooth-drum model to be converted into the padfoot for maximum versatility.

Vibratory plate compactors from Arrow-Master offer a unique vibration system that incorporates a full-width weight shaft and heavy-duty tapered roller bearings directly into the base, making the Arrow-Master P-Series Plate compactors the hardest hitting compactors in their class, according to the company. Each unit also has a reversible guide handle and double-formed leading edge for improved climbing. The protective roll bar gives greater engine and component protection with a balanced attachment point at the center for lifting. The P-Series compactors feature travel rates up to 135 feet per minute and centrifugal forces ranging from 2,500 to 5,300 pounds.

The new Rammax RW3015 P4B ride-on roller from Multiquip offers improved compaction and ergonomics. A 48.8-hp Kubota diesel engine produces 19,100 pounds of centrifugal force at 3,000 rpm and operates at 7,495 pounds. The new cab design on the trench roller is shock mounted to minimize vibration and offer improved operator comfort. Its 4-way dozer blade and padded roller make it easy to backfill and compact trenches from 54 to 63 inches wide. The Rammax RW3015 P4B ride-on roller is designed with forward/reverse travel single pedal controls and easy access to all hoses for improved serviceability. For maximum traction and efficiency of drive motors, the roller is equipped with a Poclain Hydraulics Twin Lock system.

Wacker Neuson

Wacker Neuson introduces updates to its BS-2i series of 2-cycle rammers in its effort to continuously improve the environmental friendliness of its rammers. An advanced injection system offers improved emissions, better fuel economy and easier starting. In addition, the line features an updated branding appearance. With total emissions reduced by 38 percent, emissions on the units are well below Environmental Protection Agency's standards for both carbon monoxide, and hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides emissions. In addition to lower emissions, the new cylinder reduces fuel consumptions by 15 percent, lowering overall operator costs.
