JCB VMT 160
Packed with innovative design features for maximum productivity
The JCB VMT 160 road roller is designed to offer high productivity and reliability with maximum operating economy, excellent serviceability and operation safety. The ideal combination of static weights, centrifugal forces and amplitudes makes this roller compactor perfect for a wide range of both soil and asphalt applications, from rolling sub-base to finish rolling.
Thanks to excellent manoeuvrability and a compact design, VMT 160-80/90/100 compaction rollers are also ideal for a wide range of workplaces, including yards, access roads, residential streets, car parks, roads, highways and airports.
To keep the VMT 160-80/90/100 road roller productive for longer, we’ve designed it to be easily serviceable and highly durable. That means comfortable driver stands with extremely low vibration levels, front-to-rear-frame oscillation for stability, oil splash lubricated vibration bearings, class-leading service access (including a lightweight hood), maintenance-free centre joints, and exceptional hose and piping protection.
There’s also spring-applied, hydraulically released parking brakes and spring-loaded, adjustable vulcolan scrapers on each drum. What’s more, to make sure every VMT 160-80/90/100 road roller is ready to roll when it leaves the factory, we bench test each individual machine as part of an intensive test-run.
To ensure maximum productivity, we’ve designed the VMT 160-80/90/100 road roller with performance to the fore. That’s why it comes equipped with concentric machined drum surfaces, a pressurised filtered water spray system, the largest fuel tanks in the industry, and automatic vibration control with manual override.
Not only that but this roller compactor has single-piece circular eccentric shafts for high performance and durability, a high vibration frequency for fast rolling speeds, and a high curb and side clearance. Hydrostatic front and rear drum propulsion makes the VMT 160-80/90/100 road roller even more productive. There’s even switchable drum vibration; choose from double, single front or single rear configurations. The model is even more flexible through its optional 65 mm drum offset.
