Case Construction Equipment introduces its next generation of asphalt compaction equipment with an updated line of small, double-drum asphalt rollers. The new DV Series — the DV23, DV26, DV36 and DV45 — combines a compact size, maneuverability and visibility, with the same control features found in heavy asphalt rollers, the maker says.

The DV Series small tandem rollers feature a tapered offset drum and high curb clearance, allowing users to compact right up to high curbs or other tight areas, making them well suited for parking lots, bike paths, tennis courts and other small- to medium-sized projects. The four new models, which replace the DV201, 202 and 204, are designed to handle anything from coarse bases compaction to hot-mix asphalt surfaces.

“The narrow hood design on our new line of DV Series small compactors gives operators the ability to see right down to the edge of the drum, which is critical in tight spaces, and sets Case equipment apart from competitors,” says Katie Pullen, Case brand marketing manager. “Contractor want to eliminate the amount of foot compacting they need to do, and these machines allow operators to get closer to areas than they ever could before.”

In addition, the new small DV Series compactors have a tighter turning radius, which improves compaction times, and the offset tapered drums reduce asphalt tearing while compacting around curves.
