Case CE rolls out two new soil compaction models
By Riley SimpsonDecember 15, 2021
Built for fast and consistent soil compaction on varying lift depths and material types, these new rollers feature high centrifugal forces and standard dual amplitude and dual frequency capabilities that allow operators to dial in compaction performance to each lift, according to the manufacturer.
Both rollers operate at 154 hp, the SV215E weighs 33,420 lbs with centrifugal forces up to 73,063 lbs, and the SV217E comes in at 36,500 lbs with centrigufal forces up to 74,861 lbs.
Case CE said each model is also compatible with ACEforce intelligent compaction technology to further ensure compaction quality, documentation and productivity.
“Our focus is on providing the North American market with a full-line of soil compaction equipment that fits a variety of jobsite profiles and transportation needs,” said Jeremy Dulak, product manager at Case CE. “These new models add compaction power and performance at the higher end of the product line while retaining the versatility and compaction performance of Case rollers — and we’re helping contractors complete compaction in fewer passes, even on deeper lifts.”
Case said its E Series compactors feature a low center-of-gravity, as well as an axle-free design that provides constant power to the wheels and drum with an electronic self-adjusting torque control system.
This is further assisted by automatic traction control with HX drive propulsion system, which is optional on smooth drums and standard on padfoot models. According to the manufacturer, this creates excellent stability and performance on grades up to 67 percent.
Case said the new models’ compaction performance is further enhanced with an oscillating articulated roller joint that maintains consistent drum-to-ground contact, in addition to an updated drum design that reduces drift and maintains constant compaction throughout each rotation.
Standard dual frequencies and amplitudes, along with standard auto vibration control, let the operator set compaction performance based on the type of material and the depth of lift — reaching desired compaction in fewer passes, and ultimately improving productivity and reducing wear and tear on the equipment.
Available in both cab and open configurations, Case E Series soil compactors feature a spacious, comfortable and intuitive operator environment with an adjustable seat that swivels up to 80 degrees, which provides excellent visibility to the drum surface and flexibility for compaction in both forward and reverse. The axle-free design also allows the engine to sit lower in the machine, which further improves visibility to the rear with a low, sloped rear hood.
