New Soil Roller Line

from Dynapac

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’

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 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

20 percent.

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


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.
