The PT240R rubber-wheeled compactor was developed in line with the latest expertise in the compaction of bituminous asphalt courses and natural soils. The strong kneading effect is a unique capability of the rubber-wheeled compactor. The large wheel load and elasticity of the rubber tires produce a constant insulating and sealing effect.
Top features of the Volvo PT240R include:

- Ballast of 10.5 - 26.5 sh tn (9,500 - 24,000 kg).
