Complete with new oscillation technology, the DD105 OSC double drum compactor from Volvo Construction Equipment has the ability to effectively compact in delicate areas, such as bridges, over pipes and close to residential areas.

Volo Conexpo

Fitted with flexibility of Volvo’s oscillation technology, which eliminates vertical vibrations, the DD105 OSC offers high compaction performance while producing a non-damaging oscillation movement. Featuring a 1 680 mm wide drum with hardened, abrasion-resistant alloy steel drum shell, the DD105 OSC is powered by a D3.8 Volvo engine.

In addition to the oscillation technology, adapting to different jobsites is easy. With the option of using a drum with eight amplitude settings or two, changes can be made according to the surroundings and material depth, adding further to the machine’s versatility. Selecting the amplitude most suitable for the mix conditions and thickness enables the operator to reach a higher quality of work in fewer passes.

The DD105 OSC offers features that are designed with the operator in mind. The open ROPS/FOPS canopy and the optional enclosed cab combine comfort, control and visibility, ensuring a productive operator environment. From the air suspension seat, the operator has a commanding view of the jobsite, as well as clear sightlines down to the drum and spray bars, enhancing safety and rolling precision. The view of curbs and obstructions is enhanced with off-set steering, aiding precise compaction. With ergonomically-positioned controls and joystick, manoeuvrability is improved for the operator, who can rely on the Anti-Slip Control to easily load and unload the machine without damaging the pavement.

To accommodate variable site conditions, the Volvo DD105 OSC double drum compactor is equipped with features that ensure a smooth and consistent mat finish. The drum vibration system enables operators to achieve target density across different applications, by utilising a high centrifugal force and 8-amplitude option. In appropriate amplitudes, the compactor operates more effectively, helping operators achieve a high quality finish in fewer passes.

The DD105 OSC features an automatic drum water system with triple filtration, providing uniform coverage with variable flow to prevent material pick-up. With features that include primary and backup pumps, primary and backup spray bars for each drum, hand serviceable nozzles, as well as drum wipers, the automatic drum wetting system delivers unbeatable efficiency for ultimate machine availability.
