March 19, 2013, Racine, Wis. – Case Construction Equipment
introduced today its next generation of asphalt compaction equipment
with an updated line of small double drum asphalt rollers.
narrow hood design on our new line of DV Series small compactors gives
operators the ability to see right down to the edge of the drum, which
is critical in tight spaces, and sets Case equipment apart from
competitors,” says Katie Pullen, Case brand marketing manager.
“Contractors want to eliminate the amount of foot compacting they need
to do, and these machines allow operators to get closer to areas than
they ever could before.”
explains that the small DV Series compactors also have a tighter
turning radius, which improves compaction times, and the offset tapered
drums reduce asphalt tearing while compacting around curves.
can further maximize productivity with standard dual amplitudes and
dual frequencies. The Tier 4 Interim Yanmar engine on the small DV
Series compactors delivers the same high centrifugal forces and
frequencies as the competition, but at lower RPMs, making the machines
more fuel efficient. Low overhead clearance is no problem with the
standard foldable rollover protection system (ROPS).
offer superior compaction capabilities for a variety of asphalts, and
the pressurized water tanks ensure there’s no wasted water and
consistent flow, even on hills,” Pullen says.
operator platform that minimizes vibration and reduces operator
fatigue. Operators also have superior visibility to the drum edge on
both sides of the machine with a lateral sliding seat as standard
equipment, even on the smallest machine. The automatic vibration control
system includes automatic or operator-controlled start and stop to the
machines are built to minimize maintenance time and maximize
productivity for years to come. Routine maintenance is performed easily
with the gas strut assist opening hood and unmatched access to key
internal engine components. The compactors feature an external fuel fill
and Teflon articulation joint. In addition, all check points are
conveniently located on one side of the machine for faster service.
Case DV23, DV26, DV36 and DV45 asphalt rollers have drum widths ranging
from 39 inches (1,000 mm) to 54 inches (1,380 mm), and operating
weights from 4,960 lb (2,250 kg) to 10,295 lb (4,670 kg).
