Volvo unveils DD128C double-drum compactor

Volvo Construction Equipment’s new DD128C double-drum compactor, showcased at its ConExpo booth, is designed to provide both smoothness and productivity, says the company.

The 79-inch-wide drum with chamfer and radii drum edges gives the machine high compaction performance and reliability, Volvo CE says. With a diameter of 55 inches, the drum has auto-reversing eccentrics to ensure eccentric rotation in the direction the drum is rolling. An automatic drum wetting system adjusts water flow to the speed of the drum to both minimize water use and ensure uniform drum coverage, preventing material pickup.
