Delivering the efficiency and productivity you demand through integrated machine systems.

The Autoshift mode, when active, allows the machine to automatically upshift or downshift based on machine speed and torque, optimizing performance and thus saving fuel. This feature can be easily enabled or disabled on the soft keypad.

Decelerator Pedal

The left pedal acts as a brake, transmission neutralizer and an engine decelerator to override the engine speed selected by the throttle lock. This enables the operator to slow down when the throttle lock is engaged and to return to throttle lock without pressing a resume or set button again. This aids in maneuvering around trucks, tractors or any other obstacle.

The heart of any compaction system.

Chevron Tamping Tip Design

The modified chevron tamping wheel tip design provides greater ground pressure, more compaction, excellent traction and a smooth ride.

Compaction

Compaction is achieved from the bottom of the lift to the top. The tapered tips walk out of the lift without “fluffing” the soil. The top of the lift is compacted and the surface is relatively smooth and sealed so hauling units are able to maintain a high speed when traveling over the fill. The 825K travel speed allows four forces of compaction: pressure, manipulation, impact and vibration. Since the 825K can also spread fill, the number of spreader tractors may be able to be reduced.

Standard Tips

Standard tips are used in typical soil compaction applications where compaction specification requirements are 95-100 percent Standard Proctor.

Symmetrical Tamping Tip Pattern

Equal compaction in forward or reverse is the result of the symmetrical tamping tip pattern. Tips are full perimeter and replaceable. The tip is welded to a base assembly, which then is welded directly to the drum.

Cleaner Bars

Each wheel has two cleaner bars to keep the drums free of carryover dirt, regardless of rolling direction so efficiency is maximized.

Adjustable Cleaner Bar Tip

The adjustable cleaner bar tips are heat-treated and direct hardened, cutting edge steel to increase wear life, which translates into lower operating costs.

Best-in-class operator comfort and ergonomics.

Your operators can work more efficiently and stay comfortable with our customer-inspired cab features.
