Weber MT updates CR 8 soil compactor
By Sarah Ann McCay30 January 2014
Weber MT has introduced the next generation in its CR 8 walk behind soil compactor.
The new CR 8 offers a centrifugal force of 75 kN - slightly more than the 74 kN of the previous model - at a weight of approximately 600 kg, up from 587 kg.
The design and technical details have been remodelled following last year's launch of the larger CR 9 machine.
An all-around enclosure and the sturdy frame provide full protection for the Hatz diesel engine 1 D 81 Z used in this machine - the same as on the previous model. Meanwhile, the maintenance cover provides easy access to all essential parts to be serviced.
The height-adjustable manual guide bar with rubber-encased handle makes this unit easy to use and reduce operator fatigue. Low hand-arm vibrations, and variable forward and reverse travel add to its user ergonomics.
E-start comes as standard with the base version of the CR 8.
