New RD 27 roller models from Wacker Neuson

Wacker Neuson's new RD 27 dual-drum vibratory rollers are now powered by a 37.5-horsepower Kubota diesel engine. They also feature a vast array of features designed to support user-friendliness and enhance visibility.

They have been fitted with a multi-function, directional control lever that offers several options for vibration and turning water on or off. This gives operators the ability to control all of the common machine functions without having to take their hands off the control.

The operator's station is ergonomic and provides dashboard and control panels that are easy to read. The layout of the display includes water and fuel levels and vibration gauge.

The receded front frame of the roller provides exceptional visibility to the front drum, which helps the operator easily align the drum during compaction and track water coverage. Applications include base and finish asphalt layering and subbase material compaction, among many others.

The RD 27 comes in two different drum widths — the 39.4-inch RD 27-100 and the 47.2-inch RD 27-120, weighing between 5,400-6,000 pounds. Both models provide single- or double-drum vibration and the option of high or low compaction force. The models use hydraulics to regulate high or low force, which allows optimum horsepower in both settings.

Their additional features are tool-free access to the water pump, filter and bars. No tools are needed to flip the bumpers up to access the tie-down points, water bars and lights. The best perk is that general engine maintenance points are easily accessible from one side of the roller.
