Rollers find favour

Nation-wide equipment hirer Fork Rent PLC of Ipswich Suffolk has opted for ten Volvo DD25w tandem rollers following a successful trial and evaluation of Volvo’s latest 2.5 tonne machine.
“The initial trials we undertook with the DD25w proved very successful,” comments Chairman Guy Nicholls. “We also liked the build quality, modern design and not least the safety features that are built in as standard which were an important selling point. Our customers, especially local authorities and highways agencies demand only the best and the DD25w in our opinion is,” he continues.
The Volvo DD25w double drum compactor weighs in at 2.6 tonnes and features a drum width of 1.2 metres. The drums feature dual frequencies operating at either 55Hz or 67 Hz for optimal impact and delivering nominal amplitude of .53 cm. A 260 litre pressurized water feed system is directed via four nozzles per drum working in conjunction with spring loaded, self adjusting urethane wipers. The DD25w affords excellent visibility to the drum edges forward and backward for the machine operator. The machined drum surface with radiused and chamfered edges produce a professional quality finish on each job and a closed loop hydrostatic drive system provides seamless direction changes and a maximum speed of up to 10 kph.
