Case Construction Equipment’s SV208D single drum vibratory compactor is compatible with both smooth and padfoot drums. It features best-in-class centrifugal forces, a self-adjusting torque control system, and the most climbing power in the industry, according to Case.
The SV208D is able to climb grades of up to 65% 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-hp 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.
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. For example, if the machine has spent more time in low idle, the system will extend out its service interval.
