Hyundai on Tuesday unveiled a new tandem-drum compaction roller and introduced four single-drum models updated with new engines at ConExpo 2017 in Las Vegas.
The new model is the HR26T-9. This roller weighs in at 6,400 pounds, has a drum width of 47 inches (working width is 49 inches) and is powered by a 31-horsepower, Tier 4 Interim Deutz D 2011 L2i diesel.
Hyundai says while its tandem-drum rollers are designed for asphalt paving and maintenance, the HR26T-9 can also be used for soil compaction—a job typically reserved for its single-drum lineup.
Like the rest of the Hyundai tandem-drum lineup, the HR26T-9 features front and rear scrapers for keeping the drums clean and 55-gallon water-spray systems. The following are standard features across the tandem-drum lineup:
♦ ROPS roll bar
♦ Hydrostatic drive
♦ Hydrostatic vibration on both drums
♦ Automatic vibration mode (double/single vibration)
♦ Spring-loaded brakes on both drums
♦ Manual emergency stop switch with touch sensitive switch at the seat
♦ Spring-mounted driver’s compartment
♦ Four headlights
♦ Lockable dashboard
Four single-drum rollers now Tier 4 Final compliant
Hyundai also introduced updated versions of the HR70C, HR110C, HR120C and HR140C single-drum rollers at the show. All four of these machines are now powered by Tier 4 Final engines.
A Deutz TD2.9 L4 powers the HR70C while a Cummins QSF 3.8 powers the HR110C, HR120C and HR140C.
On these single-drum models, the compaction drum is available with a smooth or pad-foot surface.
