The Volvo SD110B is an efficient choice for excellent compaction

Featuring Volvo’s unique ECO mode, a foldable open ROPS for easy transportation and an electronically controlled engine hood for quick servicing, the SD110B single drum compactor from Volvo Construction Equipment is built to ensure ultimate overall efficiency.

Volvo Construction Equipment’s SD110B single drum compactor is designed to deliver a powerful, efficient performance. A range of superior features ensure outstanding efficiency at all times, from operation to servicing and transportation. Equipped with Volvo’s unique ECO mode, the SD110B offers up to a 20% reduction in fuel consumption. Designed for easy operation and servicing, the engine hood is opened and closed electronically and a foldable open ROPS can be raised and lowered by the operator without the need for tools, ensuring convenient transport of the machine.

The SD110B is optimized to deliver dual amplitude and centrifugal force – matching the drum’s performance to any application. The choice of high or low amplitude is easily selected, giving the operator the flexibility to adjust the drum’s dynamic force based on the application at hand. The combination of high force and heavy weight facilitates excellent compaction to ensure material target density is achieved in fewer passes. 

Volvo’s new padfoot drum shape adapts to all ground conditions, increasing coverage to improve the quality of compaction when working with cohesive soils and reaching target density faster. An additional row of padfeet compacts more surface area with every turn of the drum, and the padfeet have been repositioned closer together to ensure a smoother performance.

A p recise performance

The SD110B is equipped with a premium Volvo Tier 3 / Stage IIIA engine, delivering high torque at low rpm for superior performance and low fuel consumption. Working together with Volvo’s ECO mode, it has been carefully designed to lower emissions and increase efficiency without compromising on power. 

The engine, hydraulics and electronics work in harmony, delivering superior performance and increased machine life. The heavy-duty drum has been designed and manufactured with durability in mind. The large diameter, thick drum shell is engineered from high strength steel for longevity and performance. 

The machines’ frames are built with precision and consistency, ensuring a strong structure. The center joint allows +/- 15 degrees of oscillation and +/- 38 degrees of frame articulation for better stability and maneuverability – ensuring safer operations on uneven ground. Center joint bearings are maintenance-free.

For excellent gradeability, the Volvo traction system provides outstanding climbing and traction capabilities in difficult applications such as steep inclines or slippery surfaces, and the system prevents wheel or drum spin.

The SD110B is also equipped with an efficient cooling system. The cooling fan draws reduced power from the engine, and heat exchangers for hydraulic oil, engine coolant and charged air are optimized for operation at high ambient temperatures. The engine package lowers total cost of ownership and reduces noise for greater operator comfort.

Operate with ease

The SD110B features a convenient foldable open ROPS with a roof that can be raised and lowered by the operator without the need for tools. This provides an industry-leading transport height of only 2.3 meters. The roof is mounted on gas spring shocks, allowing for safe operation by a single operator.

The fully adjustable seat slides and turns to enhance visibility and operator safety and comfort, and the ROPS/FOPS certified Volvo cab is pressurized to increase the efficiency of the air conditioning system and prevent dust from entering the operator environment. With floor to ceiling cab windows, the operator has an excellent forward drum view as well as superior rear visibility. 

This machine features a new control panel, created for an improved operator experience. The single lever propulsion and vibration control is conveniently located within the operator’s zone of comfort and reach.

Simple servicing

Designed for hassle-free service access, the engine hood lift is electronically controlled for easy and convenient access to the engine compartment. The hydraulic pressure test ports are grouped together remotely and key service check points are grouped on one side of the compactor to ensure regular maintenance and inspections can be conducted more efficiently – increasing overall productivity and reliability. 

The SD110B is a robust and durable compactor that provides easy service access for quick regular maintenance checks – quality features keep downtime to a minimum and increase machine longevity.

The SD110B is available in South East Asian markets.
