Dynapac has made a notable launch in China with the introduction of its CP275 rubber tyred compactor. The CP275 compaction roller is a notable introduction for Dynapac, as it is the first unit that has been designed in China for this market. The firm’s president, Peter Lauwers, said, “We have now engineering team in China of 50 people that develops its own machines. It has all the features and benefits of a European machine but is for the Chinese market.”

This marks a key move, with the firm’s Chinese operation establishing a far greater degree of autonomy than in the past and Lauwers said, “We don’t do any marketing in Europe any more for China.”

Charlie Pang is product manager- rollers at Dynapac China and said that the machine has a maximum operating weight of 27tonnes, along with a 2.37m wide compaction width. He explained that the basic machine weight is 14tonnes and the concrete ballast is modular, with the user able to lift the side covers and weights of 4tonnes, 8tonnes and 12tonnes, depending on the operating requirement. And he said, “We have a 600litre water capacity so you can work without stopping for a long time.”

The machine is offered with both Tier 2 and Tier 3 engine options, both from Cummins and offering power outputs of 93kW and 119kW respectively. Drive is hydrostatic to the four rear tyres, while the five front tyres are for steering. Pang added, “As an option you can have ‘air on the run’ to adjust tyre pressures without stopping.”

According to Pang, “The cab is the number one in China and it has two steering positions and dual-circuit braking systems. We have 12 lights, so you have a very good view at night.”
