JCB SD580 Single Drum Roller woth trailerJCB strengthen compact line of equipment

A new single drum roller and two new compaction plates have been unveiled at the Executive Hire Show, UK. In trying to satisfy customers in specific industry sectors, JCB say that all three machines have been designed and engineered by JCB to meet the needs of local authorities, hire companies and contractors.

SD580 Single Drum Roller

This is a compact 580 mm wide single drum roller designed for small asphalt reinstatement work and ground care duties where access prevents the use of a larger double drum machine. Powered by a proven Honda GX160 petrol engine, delivering 3.9 hp (2.9 kW), the SD580 weighs 185 kg and delivers a centrifugal force of 10 kN with a frequency of 76 Hz.
A large 15 litre removable water tank with sprinkler controls fitted to the top of the roller and self-cleaning strips on the drum to prevent the build up of dirt are standard. The height adjustable handle has been designed to provide compact dimensions for transportation.

A travel speed of 0-1.5 km/h provides easy relocation between working areas, reducing time for the operator and contributing towards productivity.

For transporting between jobs, JCB has also developed an optional trailer (picture above) providing safe, efficient transfer between job sites. Available with a ring or ball hitch, the trailer, which complies with the latest towing legislation, has been specifically designed for a single drum roller, and includes an axle stand and lighting board.

SE10-35 Forward Vibratory Plate

Designed for easy compaction of asphalt, soil and non-cohesive materials, JCB is to introduce the SE10-35 forward vibratory plate (below). Weighing 73 kg, the plate width is 350 mm and a plate length of 527 mm. With a centrifugal force of 10.5 kN and a frequency of 90 Hz, the plate has a maximum travel speed of 23 m/min and can handle up to a 30% grade.

The tubular frame provides both a lifting point and protection for the Honda GX120 petrol engine. Options include a paving pad, transport wheels and a water tank, for increased versatility.

JCB DE35-42 Reversible Vibratory PlateDE35-42 Reversible Vibratory Plate

Also being launched is the DE35-42 - a diesel-powered reversible plate weighing 240 kg. Though enclosed in a sturdy protective cover, the machine provides easy access for both oil and fuel filling. Access to the air filter and battery is through a durable cover, while the control handle uses a ‘click lock’ system to lock it in the transport position.

A Hatz IB20 diesel engine with standard electric and recoil start provides the power to drive the machine, delivering a compaction frequency of 80 Hz and a centrifugal force of 35 kN across the 420 mm wide plate.

Maximum travel speed is 26 m/min and the plate can be used for a variety of compaction tasks when moving forwards, backwards and in a stationary position. The control handles feature a forward speed lock and have been designed to be used by left or right handed operators.
