New Soil Roller Line
New to the Dynapac range of compaction
equipment are the CA1300 and CA1500
single-drum soil rollers for high maneu-
verability 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 en-
gine and steel blades that improve compaction, safety and
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 compo-
nents 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’
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 efficient-
ly compact soil with minimal passes.
The CA1300’s 54inch (1372mm) drumand 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 ef-
ficiently 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
For environmentally sensitive
worksites, the rollers feature Atlas
Copco’s ECO Mode, an rpm-man-
agement system. The system reduc-
es fuel consumption by as much as
The new Gehl R Series Radial-Lift Skid Steer Loaders
comprises three models – the R190, the R220 and
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
The operator’s compartment has a new side-folding re-
straint bar and armrests with multiple adjustments to en-
hance 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.
