Dynapac's road building showcase
By Helen Wright18 March 2013
Atlas Copco’s road building brand, Dynapac, will complete its range of fifth generation single drum rollers at the show with the introduction of the CA1300, CA1500 and CA2000 models, after it introduced the larger and mid-range models last year.
The new rollers feature cross-mounted diesel engines and are said to produce low levels of noise. They also feature the company’s Active Bouncing Control technology that prevents damage to the machine and over-compaction.
Dynapac claims that, using the ECO Mode, its CA2500 – 6500 rollers, the large asphalt rollers and the new CG2300, consume between 15 and 20% less diesel compared to the previous range without ECO Mode.
Another new launch comes in the form of the CG2300 roller, which features an electronic steering wheel for smooth and precise steering within a turning radius of 3.1m, while the CC1600 tandem roller will also be present on the stand – a machine that boasts 1.6m wide vibratory drums.
New pavers will also be presented at the show, including the SD2550CS tracked paver with R300TVE rigid screed, which features an EU Stage IIIB-compliant engine.
The F1200CS paver will also be introduced – a machine capable of laying down 300 tonnes per hour – while two wheeled pavers will also be present in the form of the SD2500WS and F1700W. Dynapac said the F1700W stands out for its power, economy, and its robust new design.
Another new product on display will be the MF2500C material feeder – a machine that the company claims is the only 2.5m feeder on the market. It is capable of feeding 27 tonnes of gravel, sand or asphalt in just 35 seconds.
