Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas’ new tandem-drum compaction roller, the HR26T-9, is designed for asphalt paving and maintenance. The model has an operating weight of 6,400 lbs. and drum width of 47 inches, with a working width of 49 inches. A Tier 4 Interim-compliant Deutz D 2011 L2i diesel engine rated at 31 hp powers the HR26T-9.

While the Hyundai tandem-drum roller models are primarily designed for asphalt paving applications, fleets also may use these compact machines for soil compaction. The tandem-drum rollers feature front and rear scrapers to keep the drums free of material buildup. They also provide 55-gallon water-spray systems that can sprinkle both the pavement surface of the drums, with operator-adjustable sprinkling intervals. Each model offers the largest drum in its weight class for optimum compaction results.

Other standard equipment on Hyundai tandem-drum roller models includes a rollover protectice structure (ROPS) roll bar, hydrostatic drive, hydrostatic vibration system at both drums, automatic vibration mode (double / single vibration), spring-loaded brakes on both drums, manual emergency stop switch with touch sensitive switch at the seat, spring-mounted driver’s compartment, four headlights, driver's seat with armrests and safety belt, and lockable dashboard.

Hyundai compaction rollers come with Hyundai’s three-year, 3,000-hour full-machine standard warranty and lifetime warranties on articulation joints.
