PowerThe liquid-cooled C1.5 engine provides a gross power of 24.6 kW (33 hp) for good performance and reliability on grades and in tough conditions.
Large Cooling SystemThe large cooling system with integrated water and oil coolers keep engine temperatures low in order to maximize fuel efficiency and minimize emissions.
High Ambient CoolingThe high ambient cooling system provides efficient operation in high ambient temperatures.
Low Sound LevelsLow sound levels are achieved in both operating speeds. An intermediate throttle position enables even quieter operation for optimum operator comfort.
500 Hour Oil ChangeThe oil change interval for the C1.5 engine is 500 hours, reducing service requirements and maximizing uptime.
Traction Control (Optional)The optional traction control system transfers torque between the front and rear drums when slippage occurs.

Operator's StationThe operator's station incorporates a fully-equipped console and an adjustable suspension seat. Arm and wrist rests provide better operator comfort for day-long productivity. The steering wheel includes a steering knob for easy maneuverability in turns.
Instrument PanelThe easy-to-understand instrument panel integrates a fuel level indicator, hour meter and light indicators for machine functions. The key switch includes an automatic engine pre-heat feature that improves cold-weather starting.
Smooth OperationThe hydraulic propel lever's two steps regulating curve provides smooth and precise control at low speed. Machine speed increases gradually in the first half of lever stroke for optimum control in confined areas. The second half of lever stroke enables the maximum propel speed to be reached quickly.
Foldable ROPS (Optional)The foldable ROPS includes two gas shocks that assist the operator and folds forward or backward without the use of special tools.
The convenient, comfortable operating environment with three-position seating provides good visibility and promotes day-long productivity.» Learn More
Dual Frequency Vibratory SystemThe standard vibratory system incorporates two frequencies of 63 Hz (3,780 vpm) and 55 Hz (3,300 vpm) in order to provide application versatility.
Vibratory SelectionA vibratory selection switch provides standard front, rear and both drum vibratory capabilities.
Automatic Vibratory ControlThe vibratory system includes an automatic start feature that activates whenever the propel lever is moved from the neutral position.
Pod-style Eccentric WeightsThe eccentric weights are enclosed in a pod-style housing providing cleanliness that extends bearing life.
Rear Drum Vibratory Delay (Optional)The rear drum vibratory delay feature controls the start of the rear drum in order to assist power management on slopes.
The vibratory system provides good balance between frequency and amplitude in order to meet various job site conditions.» Learn More
Water TankA 150L (39.6 gal) high-capacity polyethylene water tank is enclosed within the machine frame, providing extended operation. An additional tank with a 90 L (23.7 gal) capacity provides a total water capacity of 240 L (63.4 gal). A newly designed drain allows the entire system to be drained quickly.
Extended Operating IntervalsThe standard 150L (39.6 gal) tank provides an operating interval of 1.5 hours between refills. An additional 90 L (23.7 gal) tank extends the interval by an additional hour, while the intermittent spray mode doubles the operating time.
Water Pump and FiltersThe extended life water pump and filters are conveniently located for easy access while providing optimum spray and flow.
Retractable Self-Adjusting ScrapersThe retractable, self-adjusting scrapers utilize a hardened, compound that provides durability. The ability to retract the scrapers when moving between job sites extends the service life and lowers owning and operating costs.
