CASE Construction Equipment Announces E Series Compact Vibratory Rollers
CASE Construction Equipment announced its new E Series compact vibratory rollers with both double drum and combination (front drum and rear pneumatic tires) configurations. The rollers are designed with a high curb clearance, no overhangs and narrow drum widths ranging from 39 to 54 inches, depending on the model, to accommodate small- to mid-size compaction applications such as driveways, walking paths, commercial developments and existing structures.
The E Series features seven models and replaces the previous CASE compact vibratory roller line. Primary enhancements include a redesigned operator interface for intuitive operation and improved ergonomics. New control features include an electronic travel lever with an extended range of functions at the operator’s fingertips, including RPM settings, drive settings, sprinkler system controls, parking brake and more. An automated sprinkling system reduces water use when the machine is in neutral.
Operators can also choose between automatic or manual vibration engagement to meet their preference and to help avoid damage to the asphalt during starts and stops, while the offset tapered drums reduce asphalt tearing during operation around curves.
E Series rollers are compatible with the CASE ACE Force intelligent compaction system—a technology designed to improve compaction quality while requiring fewer passes to reach target specs. ACE Force also generates reports for applications where exacting specs and records of compaction performance are required.
A new operation mode selector allows the operator to select loading, working or transport to maximize machine performance and fuel efficiency. Operators are also able to choose between soft drive that delivers a smooth ride during asphalt compaction applications, and an optional hard drive setting that allows the operator to make swift turns. An optional rear differential lock function is available on combi models.
