Trench Roller

Trench Roller RTLx-SC3: smart remote-controlled trench roller

The RT trench roller with the SC3 infrared-remote control offers proven compaction results with safer operation. The smart control uses an infrared signal with line-of-sight control. The articulated trench roller with padfoot drums offers below the axle exciter in each drum to allow for the efficient transfer of compaction energy to the soil for superior compaction results. The compaction of excavations and sub bases of foundations, roads and parking lots is the RT's specialty.

Trench Roller RTLx-SC3

Infrared Line-of-sight Remote Control

  • The operator is removed from the hazards of operating compaction equipment inside a trench or near other equipment.
  • The operator is protected from dust, exhaust fumes and noise emissions
  • A proximity sensor between the operator and the machine automatically disables the machine within a range of 2 meters

Low Exciter Position

  • The below the axle exciter system in each drum allows for more efficient transfer of energy to the soil for superior compaction results.
  • With the exciters positioned below the axle , the center of gravity is also lower which improves the stability of the machine and lowers the risk of the machine tipping over over.
  • As the compaction energy is transferred directly to the soil, the wear of the machine is reduced. This decreases the overall maintenance cost of the machine.

Low Maintenance Cost

  • Permanently lubricated exciter and drive systems are maintenance free making it most economical to run throughout its entire life. No drive or exciter oil changes are required.
  • All other machine components are easily accessible thanks to the wide opening hoods, which makes cleaning and maintenance an easy daily task.

Tip-Over Protection

  • The roller can be set for lockout or non-lockout modes that will shutdown the machine should the side-to-side operating angle exceed 45° and any required inspections or repairs can be performed to avoid any damage to the engine or other components before the machine can be restarted. This feature reduces the chance for costly repairs.

More Features

Trench Roller RTLx-SC3

Flexible Drum Width

  • Dual section drums allow for convenient conversion widths of 82 cm to 56 cm. One machine can cover two operating widths depending on the requirements of the application by removing the outer extensions.
  • The easy to remove extensions have a central mounting system that protects the bolts from exposure to damage during operation
Trench Roller RTLx-SC3

Third Infrared Receiving Eye

  • A patented third infrared receiving eye on top of the trench roller eliminates signal loss, while retaining the line-of-sight control of the roller even when operating inside a trench. Operating can be guaranteed, as the third infrared signal leads to fewer interruptions improving operational efficiency.
Trench Roller RTLx-SC3

Compatec-Compaction Control

  • Increases productivity on the jobsite as the operator can work at optimal efficiency, as the degree of compaction of the ground is visible at all times. The progress of soil compaction as well as its maximum level is displayed.
Trench Roller RTLx-SC3

Highly Visible LED Ring Feedback

  • Provides instant feedback to the operator on the status of the machine.
  • Provides information to the operator of the operational and functional status of the machine
