Atlas Copco´s Tier IV Final compact CA1400 soil roller offers two speeds and amplitudes for added versatility on a variety of applications, including pipe trenches, roads, streets, steep slopes and parking lots. The roller´s cross-mounted engine allows technicians to easily access all necessary components, minimising downtime. Its ease of service, high versatility, and optimal gradeability contribute to a fast return on investment for rental centres, according to the manufacturer.
The CA1400´s 66-inch-wide (167 cm) drum and two amplitudes ´ 0.032 and 0.067 inch (0.08 and 017 cm) ´ allow rental centres to offer contractors one unit for compacting a wide range of materials. Using the adjustable settings, operators can change the amplitude to suit different lift thicknesses.
In addition to two amplitudes, operators can set the speed on the CA1400 to high or low to achieve different compaction results on a variety of applications and materials. Due to compact size, the CA1400 works well for compacting materials on large building foundations and industrial construction sites.
The CA1400 offers operators optimum gradeability to easily manoeuver up and down steep slopes. To ensure consistent speed, the CA1400 features flotation tires and a differential lock and a drum drive system for high traction in forward or reverse. These components also allow for easy movement on the job site and increased productivity.
A cross-mounted 75-hp Kubota diesel engine sits perpendicular to the CA1400´s frame. This allows technicians to reach all necessary engine components and hydraulic systems for easy servicing, which reduces turnaround time for rental centres and minimises downtime for contractors.
