Two low and high vibration frequencies are offered of 30 and 33Hz and the machine delivers switchable centrifugal forces of 180 or 270kN as well as amplitudes of 1 or 1.8mm respectively. Overall width of the machine is 2.4m and with its high comfort cab, the soil compactor is 3.13m high, while it measures just over 6m long.
