Compaction rollers Details

Tandem roller AW 240

Operating weight
2700 kg
30% / 35% (with/without vibration)

The smallest tandem roller in the weycor family

With an operating weight of 2.7 t, the AW 240 tandem roller is the smallest construction machine in its class. With its two roller bodies, it is mainly used in civil engineering and road construction and ensures perfect compaction of crushed stone, gravel or other soil materials such as sand and earth.

Thanks to a gradeability of 30% (with vibration) and 35% (without vibration), the weycor AW 240 tandem roller delivers the best performance in its field of application.

Features and benefits

Greatest drum diameter in this weight class

The practice has shown that a larger drum diameter has positive effects on the eveness after the compaction process. This is, among other, proven by the following formula: N = Static linear load in kg/cm / Bandages diameter in cm = kg/cm². Here is vividly illustrated that the lower the result is, the more is the load on the hot asphalt surface reduced. This load reduction prevents against the well known micro grooves in the transverse direction.

Largest water tank in this weight class

Sprinkler system with pump and interval timer as standard: Economical water lubrication on the drum surface as long as possible without interruption to compact the hot asphalt as long as needed without sticking on the drum surface.

Vibration front and rear as standard activated separately

Allows sensitive compaction in the first crossings.

Vibration automatic standard

To avoid cross-grooves when change direction, the vibration is switched off briefly at the moment of direction change and then automatically re-enabled.

Drum offset

The front drum is offset by 50 mm to the right side and therefore creating more room for steering corrections when flush compaction on edges are necessary.

No lubricating points

All pivot points of the roller are adapted for life not be lubricated to need, which turns into time and money savings.

Decoupled operating platform

Fatigue-free operation of the machine without disability by decoupling from the frame.

Folding rops standard

For a low transport height.
