Able to perform in tight areas or the open road, the DD30B and DD35B double drum compactors from Volvo Construction Equipment offer up to a 20 per cent increase in fuel efficiency when compared to predecessor models.

The latest double drum models from Volvo Construction Equipment round out its full line of asphalt compactors and are ideal for commercial and residential site development, including driveways, small paths, patchwork and shoulders on roadways. Providing up to 10 degrees of oscillation and 30 degrees of frame articulation in each direction, the DD30B (49-in. drum width) and DD35B (54-in. drum width) offer the versatility and stability to compact in confined areas. The fully integrated TwinLock traction control and torque transfer system provides superior climbing capabilities, even on steep inclines or slippery surfaces by minimizing drum slippage.
