Good compaction is the key ingredient for any successful roading or earth compaction project and Sakai, a manufacturer of vibratory compaction equipment, has launched its innovatively designed Sakai SV520 series through New Zealand distributor AB Equipment.
The SV520 is designed for medium to large compaction jobs and includes new features that lower operating costs and enhance operator comfort, including an air conditioned ROPS cabin, variable frequency and amplitude control as standard. Also the SV520DF comes complete with a removable padfoot shell kit to greatly increase the versatility of the machine.
Sakai originally introduced the SV520 and 520DF models both powered by Isuzu 4BG1T diesel engines with a rated output of 83.3kW at 2,100rpm at last years Bauma Show. Combining simplicity with some very clever technology the Sakai SV520 roller has a compactive force that reaches target density in a lesser number of passes to achieve better compaction uniformity. On top of this Sakai’s new Eco compaction mode (ECM), is said to reduce fuel consumption by up to 20% while maintaining compactive performance.
Operator comfort and safety is paramount. The durable dual rubber isolation system between the drum and operator deck reduces noise levels to as low as 87 dB (A) allowing the driver to become more focused and productive.
South Auckland contractor B&T Earthmoving along with retaining wall and pile foundation company Polespecs and environmental resource company Waste Management are recent converts to the popular Sakai SV520DF model
Through AB Equipment customers can access a wide variety of Sakai compaction equipment to suit any construction application. Popular amongst the range is the SW652 7-tonne double smooth drum vibratory roller, the SW502 4-tonne double smooth drum vibratory roller and the TW504 4-tonne combination vibratory roller.
