Tandem roller RD18: Compact and maneuverable

The RD18 is a compact and particularly maneuverable roller in the 1,8-t class. The 3-point articulated joint, combined with a large drum diameter, delivers even compaction performance and a high-quality asphalt surface. The user benefits from a comfortable work platform and intuitive operation. A feature of the RD18 is the one-sided drum lifting point with drums offset, which makes precise compaction possible very close to edges and walls on both sides.

Ergonomic work platform

  • The ergonomic work platform is designed for reduced vibration. The low vibration, easy access and operability of all control elements increase working comfort, operator satisfaction and operator health. This ensures a higher level of efficiency.

One-sided drum fastening with drum offset

  • The one-sided fastening with simultaneous drum offset offers complete curb clearance (no overhang on either side). The roller can approach and compact up to the edge on both sides, even at high walls.
  • The drum offset allows for crab steering and easy maneuvering, e.g. driving away from long walls. This makes quick and efficient work possible.

Uniform operating concept

  • All RD and RC rollers have the same simple operating concept. This offers advantages for rental customers, as long instruction and incorporation into work are not necessary and the machine can be used immediately and efficiently.
  • There is a lower risk of collisions and damage because the operator can quickly get everything under control.

Large line-of-sight, compact construction

  • The compact design provides an excellent view of the drums. This makes maneuvering and approaching walls and obstacles easier. This means less damage and a high quality result.
  • The operator has excellent 360° visibility. Fewer mirrors and no rear-view camera are required. In addition, the risk of accident is reduced.
