Case Introduces DV Series Double Drum Compactors for Highways, Roads and Production Asphalt Paving

Three New Models Deliver Superior Performance and Productivity

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - Case Construction Equipment today introduced three new DV Series double drum, large asphalt compactors that provide versatility for all types of production asphalt paving applications.

Case DV Series compactors deliver dual amplitudes, dual frequencies and centrifugal forces to meet the needs of any paving application, from coarse bases to hot-mix asphalt surfaces. Independent drum vibration control, combined with two operating frequencies, provides the best possible compaction productivity. Hydrostatic drive is standard for all DV Series models.

The new Case DV207, DV210 and DV213 asphalt compactors meet the requirements of a wide range of asphalt projects with drum widths of 57 in (1450 mm), 66 in (1700 mm) and 83 in (2100 mm), respectively, and operating weights up to 28,725 lb (13,030 kg).

"The Case DV Series large asphalt compactors establish a new industry standard for performance, productivity and reliability," said Woody Ferrell, Case global product marketing manager. "These new models significantly expand the Case compaction equipment product line and give contractors a superior choice for large-scale paving."

The Case Dual Drum Drive System -- standard on the new DV Series machines -- provides independent pumps for each drum. The pumps deliver 100-percent traction efficiency and eliminate slippage on the compacted surface. Plus, automatic vibration control ensures smooth starting and stopping, reducing damage to the asphalt mat. The Case vibratory system automatically starts when the drive lever is moved from neutral and stops when the lever is returned to neutral.

The combination of fuel-efficient Cummins diesel engines and 55-gallon (208 l) fuel tanks keeps the Case DV Series compactors on the job for up to 20 hours of non-stop production. Powerful front- and rear-facing halogen lights illuminate the jobsite for continued nighttime productivity. All three models feature large capacity, corrosion-free water tanks with multi-stage filtration systems. The articulated frame delivers a tight turning radius for working in confined areas.

These three new models add to the current Case line of DV201, DV202 and DV204 double drum compactors.

  • The DV213 model has a drum width of 83 in (2100 mm), an operating weight of 28,726 lb (13 030 kg) and a rated horsepower of 130 (97 kW).
  • The DV210 has a drum width of 67 in (1700 mm), an operating weight of 22,928 lb (10 400 kg) and is rated at 99 hp (74 kW).
  • The DV207 has a drum width of 57 in (1450 mm), an operating weight of 16,226 lb (7360 kg) and a power rating of 80 hp (60 kW).

Comfort features keep operator productivity high
The rear-mounted power train on Case DV Series compactors lowers noise, vibration and heat for the operator, resulting in the industry's best work platform for all-day operations.

"A comfortable operator is more productive and attentive to the job," Ferrell said. "The DV Series ISO-mounted operator's platform provides superior comfort for long workdays, and it provides best-in-class visibility to the drums and paved surface."

A standard fixed ROPS work platform provides excellent operator protection. For all-weather operation, Case offers an optional heated and air-conditioned cab. The 180-degree rotating operator's station with swivel seat gives the operator a full view to either side of the compactor and to interior gauging. The dual, multi-function, directional controls on both sides of the seat provide operation from the left or right position.

Easy, efficient maintenance
Case is known for designing fast and easy access to machine components for daily checkpoints and routine service. The new Case compactors feature a one-piece vertical-lift hood for easy, ground-level access to daily maintenance checkpoints. The DV Series compactors also feature spin-on fuel, engine oil and hydraulic filters for quick filter replacement and installation. All drive train components are easily accessible, minimizing maintenance time and maximizing productivity.
