XCMG has developed a powerful, heavyweight soil compactor in the shape of its XS302. This 30tonne machine offers a static linear load of 845N/cm and an excitation force of 510kN. According to the firm, the machine offers class leading reliability and durability for minimum downtime on-site, as well as an ergonomic cab design with good all-round visibility. A large LED screen in the cab provides comprehensive information about operating parameters and also provides diagnostics data. Performance is maximised due to the use of an anti-skid system that prevents loss of traction when the machine operates on slippery surfaces. The drum delivers high vibration effect due to its powerful excitor system and the machine is said to be suited to use on large scale projects such as airport runway construction due to its large size and productivity.
