Atlas Copco's duplex roller gets a long-awaited redesign
Form follows function when Atlas Copco launches their new LP6505 walk-behind duplex roller. Under the flip-up hoods, the new duplex roller is filled with efficiency and performance.
Perhaps the most obvious difference in the makeover is the outer design. The new flip-up hoods make for easy access to all service points, such as engine maintenance or battery charging. The previously manual brakes are replaced with new automatic hydraulic brakes; when pressure goes down, the roller brakes automatically. If pressure goes up, the brakes are released. The LP6505 is also equipped with new scrapers to avoid material sticking on the drums. Overall it’s easier to operate.
”After a decade of success with our fully hydraulic duplex roller LP6500, we are now updating it to the LP6505”, says Kjell Helgesson, Product & Application Specialist Light Compaction. ”Of course still fully hydraulic, both for vibration andtravelling,but also with new good looking designed hoods. We are also using our new hydraulic oil cooler so we can control temperature in hot environment.”
Atlas Copco is the only manufacturer that delivers this type of hydraulic oil cooler. There are several upsides from keeping the temperature down; it reduces wear on components, the battery lifetime increases, polymer items such as seals and rubber retains its function which prevents the machine from leaking. Keeping the machine cool simply provides a longer lifetime.
The LP6505 is equipped with even more new user-friendly features. Kjell Helgesson concludes: ”The operator also has easy access to throttle control,electrical starting box,water control. And we have the same low vibrations values as on the LP6500
