Atlas Copco showcases efficient, versatile CC900G asphalt roller at The Rental Show
Atlas Copco’s Dynapac CC900G asphalt roller is a premium solution for small-scale paving projects with its high visibility and robust drive components. The 1.5-ton gas powered roller includes an axial piston pump with variable displacement and two radial piston motors with constant displacement that give it a powerful hydraulic driving system. The roller also features two 35-inch-wide drums, which makes it an ideal, lightweight roller for asphalt patching, bike paths, driveways and parking lots.
Contractors can use the CC900G for small-scale compaction work such as cycle paths, small roads and small parking areas – places that need compaction but are difficult to reach with a larger roller.
The Dynapac rollers achieve high quality surface finishes through operational features, such as soft starting and stopping that prevents unevenness or cracking in the asphalt layers. This allows even new operators to start and stop without leaving marks. In a panic situation, the machine will drop out of the soft mode and brake immediately, signaling the need for an emergency stop.
The roller uses a powerful, air-cooled, 2-cylinder, 4-stroke Honda gas engine, which produces 20 horsepower. The machine’s front drum operates with as much as 4,200 vibrations per minute, while the rear drum is static. The rear drum also is equipped with shock mounts to minimize operator platform vibration. Together with the large drum diameter and drive motors connected in series, it contributes to excellent accessibility and gradeability.
The roller’s hydrostatic brakes allow operator to easily maneuver, whether driving forward or backward. They allow the operator to quickly bring the equipment to a complete stop, even while working on slopes with a 35-percent incline. The hydrostatic system captures hydraulic pressure inside an accumulator while braking. The pressure then assists accelerating the engine from a complete stop, which conserves fuel.
The CC900G roller has 18-inch curb clearances on the left and right sides of the machine. Combined with the optimal visibility, the clearances allow the operator to compact asphalt close to curbs and landscaping. They also prevent damage to curbs, which can be a costly hassle to replace.
In order to reduce maintenance costs, the machine has long service intervals and has a maintenance-free steering hitch and steering cylinder. The few remaining service points are easily accessible. The instrument panel has an hour meter, switch horn, warning lights for brakes and hydraulic oil temperature, and a water sprinkler control.
