Atlas Copco’s upgraded soil rollers the CA2500 and CA3500 save contractors on fuel costs due to their new, patented Efficiency Eccentrics as well as their ECO Mode systems.
Atlas Copco Efficiency Eccentrics system features eccentric weights positioned toward the right of the axle, which reduces the amount of weight that counteracts the soil roller’s movement at start-up. This reduces energy consumption at start-up by 50 percent, which also reduces fuel consumption.
The rollers also feature Atlas Copco’s ECO Mode fuel saving system that ensures the rollers don’t consume more fuel than necessary at a given time, which reduces fuel consumption by as much as 15 percent.
The CA2500 and CA3500 feature cross-mounted engines, these allow technicians to reach all necessary engine components and hydraulic systems for easy servicing. Because the engines are cross-mounted rather than parallel to the frame, the rollers have optimal weight distribution. The engines’ position also contributes to the rollers’ small footprints, which help the units fit easily on a trailer with other construction equipment.
