The cabbed version of the 84-inch Sakai SW994 vibratory double-drum roller launched at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 is designed with operators in extreme climates. However, operators throughout the industry can benefit from a quieter, dust-free environment that an enclosed cab provides.
Sakai America launched a cabbed version of its 84-inch Sakai SW994 vibratory double-drum roller at the 2017 ConExpo-Con/AGG Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada March 7-11. The rig is designed with operators in extreme climates in mind where temperatures and weather conditions range from one extreme to another. However, operators throughout the industry can appreciate the quieter, dust-free environment of an enclosed cab.
The roller's comfortable, spacious cab allows operators ample room to move about. The rig's trim sightlines and wide windows offer the operator excellent visibility. The seat offers five positions to choose from ranging from front facing to plus or minus 45 degrees and plus or minus 90 degrees, depending on working lane. To swivel the seat, operators simply depress the pedal at the lower right side to release the lock while sitting.
The Sakai SW994 with cab has a maximum operating weight of 31,401 pounds (14,090 kg) with load on front axle at 14,528 pounds (6,590 kg) and load on rear axle of 14,903 pounds (6,760 kg).
High-frequency, low-profile vibratory rollers offer low-profile vibration at 4,000 vpm. Operators simply flip a switch to choose frequency and amplitude or no vibration from front or rear drum, independent of each other. A cross-mounted drive and vibration motor help to minimize drum edge marking.
The rig is powered by a Cummins QSF3.8 Tier 4 Final engine. Range of speed for the SW994, reverse/forward, is 0-4.5 / 0-6.8 mph (0-7.2 / 0-11 km/h).
