Low-maintenance design for low TCO

  • The V-belt is protected from damage by a sturdy housing and can be easily tensioned. This reduces wear, saves spare parts costs and attains a long service life.
  • Machines starting at 13 kN are equipped with a cylindrical roller bearing. This is more sturdy and attains a longer service life than a ball bearing.

Low hand-arm vibration

  • The low hand-arm vibration values (< 5 m/s²) enable comfortable work.
  • The machine contributes only a small amount to the operator’s daily vibration exposure. He may work a full eight hour with the unit
  • The utilization of the machine and the productivity of the employees are increased.

Control handle

  • The control handle has a curved shape and can be swiveled forwards This makes it usable as a handle for lateral guidance, offering high stability. This is ideal for asphalt compaction, e.g. along curbs.
  • The control handle narrows towards the top. This improves the guidability of the machine along walls, as the handle does not brush along the wall.
  • The control handle, which can be swiveled forwards, offers very compact transport and storage dimensions.
