July 8, 2008

Volvo SD105DX and SD105F padfoot model are both versatile yet provide excellent drum performance and a comfortable environment for the operators. The operating weight of the smooth drum machines is 23,700 pounds (10748 kilograms) and the padfoot configuration weighs 25,100 pounds (11383 kilograms). These models have a drum width of 90 inches (2286 millimeters). The SD105DX has a centrifugal force of 59,000 pounds (261 kiloNewtons); the SD105F has a centrifugal force of 78,000 pounds (347 kiloNewtons). Utilizing the patented Volvo two-piece, clamp-on padfoot shell kit, the SD105DX converts easily from a smooth drum to a padfoot drum so that contractors can handle all types of soils. Strike-off blade options are available for each type of drum. Both models are powered by a 125-horsepower (93.2-kilowatt), four-cylinder diesel engine.
