Hitachi is displaying a selection of new and existing machines ranging from small hand-held compactors to its latest rigid dump-truck for mine and quarry use. At the small end, there is the new TMR65KDS walk-behind roller, part of a new line of light compaction equipment from Hitachi.
With only a 650 mm drum width, these lightweight machines offer excellent manoeuvrability, according to the company. A high level of linear pressure ensures optimal performance and a powerful compaction force. Low overall height affords good visibility and safer working conditions for the operator, too. Joining this machine are the ZV-R and XV-RLS vibratory rammers, part of a new range of light compaction equipment. Described by Hitachi as user-friendly and offering a high power output, these machines feature low-vibration handles and easy-to-maintain engine oil and air cleaners.
