CASE Introduces SV208 Single Drum Vibratory Compactor for Soil Compaction Applications
Posted on: 15 Mar 2017
CASE Construction Equipment introduces the new SV208D single drum vibratory compactor – compatible with both smooth and padfoot drums. With best-in-class centrifugal forces, a self-adjusting torque control system and the most climbing power in the industry, the SV208D is built for industry-leading performance in tough terrain.
The SV208D is able to climb grades of up to 65 percent due to a low-center-of-gravity axle-free design and a high-traction hydrostatic drive system that provides constant power to the wheels and drum with an electronic self-adjusting torque control system. The machine’s new 74.3 horsepower Tier 4 Final engine also delivers greater torque than previous models.
Best-in-class centrifugal force allows for higher lifts and deeper compaction depths completed in fewer passes for increased productivity. Performance on rough, uneven terrain is improved with an oscillating articulated roller joint that maintains consistent drum-to-ground contact, and a superior drum design reduces drift and maintains constant compaction throughout each rotation.
Comfort & Visibility
Available in both open and cab configurations, the SV208D features a spacious, comfortable and intuitive operator environment with an adjustable seat that swivels up to 50 degrees, providing excellent visibility of the drum surface. Rear visibility is maximized with a sloped rear deck design. The ROPS and roof in the open platform design can be disassembled and lowered for easier transport.
Like all CASE machines, the SV208D is designed for groundline serviceability. An easy-to-lift engine cover provides easy access at ground level to all fluid ports, drains, service checkpoints and filters for simplified maintenance. The SV208 also features an onboard diagnostics system that calculates when service is needed based on how the machine has been run, i.e. if the machine has spent more time in low idle, the system will extend out its service interval.
