Sakai America has introduced their 12 ton class soil rollers, the SV610-III Series, to help site-prep, roadbuilding and earthmoving contractors compact more material faster.
The SV610-III Series comes in three model variations, which are, the SV610D-III smooth drum model, weighing in at 27,555 lbs and designed for rock and granular materials, the SV610T-III 27,710 lb padfoot roller, for cohesive materials, silts and clays and the SV610TF-III model that weighs 32,560 lbs and includes a padfoot/smooth drum combination. The padfoot drum in the SV610TF-III is encased within a bolt-on smooth drum shell that can be removed when working on cohesive soils. This series comes with an 84" drum width and is designed for high yardage compaction jobs on a wide range of soils and rockfill applications – highway and airport subbases, embankments, dams, reservoirs, and large commercial tracts.
The SV610-III Series compactors are powered by a fuel efficient, Tier III, Cummins QSB4.5, 148hp water-cooled, turbocharged diesel engine. This engine fully complies with current EPA/CARB emission standards and is mounted on rubber isolators to provide added vibration protection.
All models come standard with dual amplitude. The SV610TF-III offers amplitudes up to 0.06" while the SV610D-III and SV610T-III offer amplitudes up to 0.09". All three models also offer high centrifugal forces up to 58,450 lbs. These features enable the SV610-III Series to make quick work of compaction on a variety of soils.
The SV610-III Series is equipped with a two brake, three-way failsafe
system. A hydrostatic service brake is located at the forward-reverse lever. Switching of the wet disc, spring-applied, hydraulically-released (SAHR) parking brake switch is located on the instrument panel. An emergency brake foot pedal activates both the hydrostatic and the SAHR brakes that will automatically apply in the event of an engine or hydraulic system failure. ROPS and seat belts are also standard equipment on every SAKAI roller sold in North America.
Sakai manufactures and markets a full line of compaction equipment, including vibratory soil compactors, vibratory asphalt rollers, vibratory pneumatic tire rollers and static three-wheelers and other combination rollers.
