SDLG has launched its hydraulic double-drum roller in Indonesia to support the region’s infrastructure boom.
The 3 ton-rated RD730 road roller was unveiled at an event last week in Jakarta, the Southeast Asian country’s capital, which also celebrated the one thousandth sale of its wheel loader in the country.
Indonesia is planning to build 856km of new roads across the archipelago and to meet this increased demand for reliable road construction equipment, SDLG has brought the road roller to market.
“Recent infrastructure projects in Indonesia, such as the Trans-Sumatra Toll Road, are indicative of the growing demand for dependable road construction equipment in the country,” said Victor Zhao, vice general manager for SDLG import and export.
“The RD730 not only bolsters SDLG’s product range in Indonesia but is also an excellent reliable value option for construction companies.”
Featuring a Kubota D1803-M-E3B engine to offer 24.8kW of power at 2,400rpm, maximum compaction width of 1,200mm and maximum speed of 10.5 km/h, the RD730 also uses proven hydraulic components to provide even and high tractive force across the front and rear drives. Operators can easily change vibration frequencies from 55 Hz to 67 Hz to meet paving requirements.
Several design features have been added to augment the user experience, such as an ergonomically designed operating platform to offer better visibility and operator comfort. The machine also features a 220-liter water tank, so operators can easily adjust the time between water sprays to the drums and spend less time refilling.
“We are excited to introduce the RD730 for the Indonesia market as it’ll help customers become more efficient on road construction projects,” Zhao said. “SDLG remains committed to the Indonesian market. We look forward to helping our customers expand their operations with more product offerings.”
