With an operating weight of 11,400 kg and a drum width of 2100 mm, the JCB VM 117 single drum soil compactor is designed to deliver excellent compaction performance in a minimum number of passes. Equipped with proven German vibration technology, the JCB VM 117 single drum soil compactor ensures the desired compaction density, thanks to its high centrifugal force of 256KN, static linear load of 30.24 kg/sq cm, and high amplitude of 1.8 mm.
JCB's VM 117 soil compactor is about 10% more fuel-efficient compared to the previous model, thanks to its fuel-efficient CEV Stage IV JCB ecoMAX engine. This 4.4-litre engine comes with CRDI technology that delivers better fuel efficiency, making it an ideal choice for projects where fuel costs are a concern.
The JCB VM 117 single drum soil compactor also features a 28 mm thick drum and a 10 mm stiffening ring, making it 38 mm from outside. It comes with a single-piece steel shaft for standard dual amplitude and dual frequencies, delivering one of the best compaction performances per pass.
To optimize the number of passes and monitor compaction performance in real-time, JCB's VM 117 soil compactor is equipped with 'LiveLink' and 'IntelliCompaction' - a Compaction Monitoring System. The system measures relative compaction density and displays it continuously on a colour LCD screen, helping the operator avoid both excessive and lower-than-required compaction levels with predetermined set values as reference.
Overall, JCB's VM 117 single drum soil compactor offers exceptional compaction performance, fuel efficiency, and operator comfort, making it the preferred choice for all your compaction needs. Backed by JCB's premier line solutions, a lifetime lubricated central joint, and telematics, the VM 117 is the ideal compactor for any project, big or small.
