What's New In Plant & Equipment

New Soil Roller Line from DynapacNew Soil Roller Line from Dynapac

New to the Dynapac range of compaction equipment are the CA1300 and CA1500 single-drum soil rollers for high maneuverability and visibility in appications where space is restricted.

The new CA1500 roller features Atlas Copco’s exclusive Active Bouncing Control (ABC), a cross-mounted Tier 4 Interim or Tier 4 Final engine and steel blades that improve compaction, safety and visibility.

The engines on both models are cross-mounted, or placed perpendicular to the frames, which is an industry first. The rollers’ hydraulic pumps are also in line with the engine. This allows users to reach all the necessary components on the engines and hydraulic pumps for fast and easy service and maintenance. Because the engines are cross-mounted rather than parallel to the frame, they provide optimal weight distribution and contribute to the units’ minimal footprint.

The CA1300 features a Tier 4 Final, 75-horsepower Kubota diesel engine, and the CA1500 uses a Tier IV Interim, 100-horsepower Cummins diesel engine.

The rollers’ high static linear loads make them ideal for compacting a range of materials, from clay to rock fill. The CA1300 features a static linear load of 73 pounds per linear inch (PLI), and the CA1500 has 112 PLI. The compaction power is transferred through the rollers’ drums to efficiently compact soil with minimal passes.

The CA1300 features a Tier 4 Final, 75-horsepower Kubota diesel engine, and the CA1500 uses a Tier IV Interim, 100-horsepower Cummins diesel engine.       The CA1300’s 54inch (1372 mm) drum and the CA1500’s 66-inch(1,676 mm) drum give operators optimal visibility and allow them to maneuver into tight workspaces.

Atlas Copco’s ABC system, an optional feature for the CA1500 through CA6500 models, prevents operators from over-compacting the soil.

Optional strike-off blades help the rollers’ consistency by removing oversized rocks and obstacles in front of the thick drum shells.

The blades have an innovative, divided profile that efficiently pushes out rocks, which can break up compacted soils. All Atlas Copco pad foot rollers are fitted with heavy-duty drum scrapers to keep the drums clear to ensure consistent compaction.

For environmentally sensitive worksites, the rollers feature Atlas Copco’s ECO Mode, an rpm-management system. The system reduces fuel consumption by as much as 20 percent.

Dynapac Compactors

Gehl R Series Skid Steer Loaders


The new Gehl R Series Radial-Lift Skid Steer Loaders comprises three models – the R190, the R220 and the R260.  Optional counterweights can be fitted to increase the rated operating capacity from 957 kg on the R190 to 1261 kg on the R260. Lift heights reach up to 3061 mm on the R190 and 3124 mm on the R220 and R260.

The new series come equipped with high-powered auxiliary hydraulics with excellent flow ratings and precise control.

The operator’s compartment has a new side-folding restraint bar and armrests with multiple adjustments to enhance operator comfort and safety.

The forward position of the ROPS/FOPS cab and lower rear towers deliver improved visibility to the bucket edge and to the rear of the machine.

Pressure-relieving hydraulic couplers make attachment changes simple and safe.

These new skid steer loaders also include other features such as the manual ‘Quick-a-Tach’ or hydraulic ‘Power-a-Tach’ attachment systems, HydraGlide ride control and the Hyraloc safety system.
