Volvo unveils new DD105 OSC double drum compactor

Volvo Construction Equipment has unveiled the DD105 OSC double drum compactor. Complete with new oscillation technology, the DD105OSC has the ability to effectively compact in delicate areas, such as bridges, over pipes and close to residential areas.

The DD105 OSC offers high compaction performance while producing a non-damaging oscillation movement owing to being fitted with flexibility of Volvo’s oscillation technology, which eliminates vertical vibrations.

The compactor also features a 1 680 mm wide drum with hardened, abrasion-resistant alloy steel drum shell and is powered by a D3.8 Volvo engine.

Other than the oscillation technology, adaption to different jobsites is easy. Changes can also be made according to the surroundings and material depth.

This adds 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.

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.

Availability of a commanding view of the jobsite, as well as clear sightlines down to the drum and spray bars, enhances safety and rolling precision.

The view of curbs and obstructions is enhanced with off-set steering, aiding precise compaction. Movement is also improved for the operator, who can rely on the Anti-Slip Control to easily load and unload the machine without damaging the pavement.

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.

It 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.
