Dynapac compact tandem asphalt compaction rollers designed for tight spaces
Better Roads Staff | September 27, 2011
The CC1100, CC1200 and CC1300 asphalt compaction roller models are available in either a dual steel vibratory drum configuration or in a combi version featuring one vibratory drum and four rubber rear tires. The machines are powered by water-cooled Kubota diesel engines, which are designed to run quietly and fuel efficiently.
The CC1100 weighs 5,070 pounds and features a 42-inch drum width; the CC1200 weighs 5,360 pounds and has a 47-inch drum; and the larger CC1300 weighs 8,270 pounds and features a 51-inch-wide drum. The CC1300 is considered suitable for compacting sub-bases and base courses and can follow a small paver.
The CC1100 and CC1200 feature drum diameters of 27 inches, while the CC1300 has a 32-inch drum diameter, making these models especially effective on soft asphalt compounds. In addition, the ratio of drum diameter to static linear load will help reduce the risk of surface cracks. The high clearance at the drum edge is designed to facilitate compaction close to high curbs.
With the combi versions of the three models, the rubber tires are operated in pairs by separate drive motors. This can reduce the risk of marring newly laid asphalt when making turns.
The Dynapac articulated compact tandem rollers are built using common parts to ensure better parts availability and to help retain resale values. They are equipped with a high capacity, corrosion-free, impact-resistant water tank. Three separate filters help alleviate problems of clogged sprinkler nozzles. The entire sprinkler system is configured to be drained easily with a few simple hand operations.
The model range features redesigned ergonomic controls, as well as handgrips and boarding steps designed to make it safer to get on and off the machine. The CC line also comes equipped with standard features such as a sideways sliding seat, dual driving controls and working lights.
The new model range is intended to feature lower operating costs for any paving contracting operation, big or small, while improved ergonomics and visibility help increase productivity for the professional compaction operator. Options are available to configure the machines to a contractor’s specific application needs.
