Atlas Copco Releases New Versatile Soil Roller at The Rental Show
“Rental centers look for equipment that is versatile and easy to maintain, and contractors want productivity. We designed the CA1400 with those features in mind,” said Tim Hoffman, Atlas Copco rollers product manager. “Like all of our road construction equipment, the CA1400 has an ergonomic operator’s station to maximize comfort, which contributes to overall productivity. And its tested and proven gradeability, along with dual amplitude and speed, provide versatility for many compaction projects.”
Atlas Copco offers the CA1400 with a smooth-drum or pad-drum. The roller’s high, static linear load makes it ideal for compacting thin layers of materials, such as silt, clay and gravel.
A 75-hp Kubota diesel engine sits perpendicular to the CA1400’s frame. This allows technicians to reach all necessary engine components and hydraulic systems for easy servicing, which reduces turnaround time for rental centers and minimizes downtime for contractors. The engine position gives the roller an optimal weight distribution and contributes to its small footprint.
With Atlas Copco’s ECO Mode rpm-management system, the engine minimizes fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The system generates only the amount of power needed to operate at any given time, which reduces fuel consumption as much as 15%. Operators also can switch the engine to run at high rpm for heavy climbing or starting the vibratory function of the roller.
Exceptional visibility enhances productivity and the insulated station protects against vibrations. Atlas Copco offers rental centers multiple versatility-enhancing options, such as biodegradable hydraulic fluid, a bolt on shell kit, and a leveling blade.
