JCB SINGLE DRUM SOIL COMPACTORS VM 75D

VM 75D Specification
Operating Weight16094lb (7300kg)
Centrifugal Force138kN (31024)
Maximum Engine Power84hp (63kW)

The JCB VM 75D vibrating roller is one of our smallest single drum soil compactor. It’s nevertheless powerful and accurate, giving you quick, high quality results. It weighs 16,094lb (7300kg), has a drum width of 68.9in (1750mm) and is powered by a highly efficient JCB Dieselmax 4.4 liter 84hp (63kW) engine.

The VM 75D drum roller is built to perform, again and again and again. That means building it to last. It’s an approach we’ve taken with all of our compaction rollers, with every sophisticated component built to perform and cost you less. Just take the single-piece eccentric shaft with overturning weights, which produces optimum performance and minimum maintenance.

In fact performance is so good that compaction is best in class on the JCB VM 75D vibrating roller. No wonder when you consider that standard equipment includes an Automatic Vibration Control, superb front-rear weight distribution, a switchable anti-slip system (SASS) and heavy-duty no-spin axles.

OVERVIEW:

PERFORMANCE

Like all our compaction rollers, the JCB VM 75D vibrating roller has been designed after a period of extensive customer consultation. That means we’ve built the machine our customers have always been asking for.

A superior chassis provides excellent weight distribution and NoSpin axles are super-strong, making the JCB VM 75D drum roller perfect for heavy-duty construction projects. The entire frame is intelligently designed with front-to-back oscillation for extra stability, there’s a flush finish for confined environments, a large fuel tank, and a sophisticated traction control system provides great gradability.

This vibrating roller also overcomes one of the biggest problems with standard compaction equipment: over-compaction. The (AVAutomatic Vibration Control C) switches off vibration when the drive lever is is neutral position. That means smooth and perfect finish also at the layer ends.

Our innovative optional Compatronic system uses a drum-mounted accelerating sensor to measure movements during compaction, transmitting information loss-free to the operator’s in-cab display. As a result, operators can now receive precise information on vibrator frequency, jump operation and relative compaction values. Material density is also measured and, when the highest possible density is reached, the operator is warned via visual LEDs.

Best in class compaction comes as standard on the JCB VM 75D vibrating roller.

Additional productivity features

  • Switchable frequency and amplitude to match different soil conditions and natural frequencies
  • Dieselmax engine for high power and torque at low revs, with associated fuel savings and low emissions

SERVICEABILITY AND DURABILITY 

Every aspect of the JCB VM 75D vibrating roller has been designed to perform reliably.

Over-dimensioned components provide extra durability and reduced repair costs. Our soil compactor range also features a maintenance-free, lifetime-lubricated articulation joint,  to reduce downtime and servicing costs and all our machines are tested and tuned on our production line before delivery.

The drums on our compaction rollers have pre-loaded rubber buffers to protect drum and hydraulic motor alike from axial pressures.

When the time does come for a routine service, you’ll find all the components on a JCB VM 75D vibrating roller are easily accessible, some of them from the centralised service station (containing hydraulic systems and towing pumps). The high volume fuel and hydraulic tanks are side-by-side (and well protected) under the hood.

WORKING ENVIRONMENT

To make the JCB VM 75D vibrating roller as productive as possible, you need to make the operator as productive (and therefore comfortable) as possible.

That’s why we’ve designed the cab and operating environment of this drum roller to be ergonomic and comfy. Driver stands and cabins are easily accessible from both sides of the machine and the interior is spacious and intuitively designed.

The JCB VM 75D vibrating roller has plenty of space for tools, while large windows provide 360° visibility, an excellent drum-edge view and outstanding on-site safety. Controls are precise and easy to use, with an ergonomic driving lever for exact speeds and accurate changes of direction.

JCB SINGLE DRUM SOIL COMPACTORS VM 117D/PD

VM 117D/PD Specification
Maximum Engine Power125hp (93kW)
Operating Weight29321lb (13300kg)
Overall Width87.8In
Drum Width83In
Centrifugal Force57551lbf (256kN)

The JCB VM117 is all-new and supremely productive. Boasting the kind of innovation and design expertise you’d expect from JCB Compaction, the VM117 and VM137 soil compactors offer a host of performance, comfort, safety and efficiency features.

Like our new award-winning EcoMAX T4i-compliant engine, which meets Tier 4i legislation without bulky DPF or SCR; compact installation provides uncompromised visibility and maneuverability. The VM117 also has up to 60% gradeability, a new exciter system, an all-day comfy ergonomic cab, great ease of maintenance, and strong residuals.

OVERVIEW:

COMPLETE COMPACTION

  • Expect ultimate homogeneous compaction performance in few passes on every surface from sand to rock, courtesy of optimized dual amplitude and frequency settings, high centrifugal forces (VM117 – max. 256 kN), increased static linear load and vibrating mass.
  • The VM117 boasts quick (up to 11 km/h) travel times around site, which speeds up preparation for the next pass.
  • A tight turning circle also makes these soil compactors supremely maneuverable
  • Our EcoMAX-engined VM117 soil compactor offers a superb 60% gradeability for great versatility and productivity.
  • If you plan to use your VM117 soil compactor on clay, choose our pad foot drum to improve water evaporation and, therefore, create more stable soil. For added versatility, choose a pad foot shell kit.
  • Choose from a variety of compaction measurement systems, including our COMPATRONIC NAV, which displays all the machine’s working parameters and uses a GPS sensor to provide tracking and documentation functions.

PRODUCTIVITY MAXIMIZED 

  • JCB’s EcoMAX engine uses less fuel than our Tier 3 engines thanks to – amongst other things – our variable geometry turbo. The standard variable speed fan provides another fuel savings of up to 6%.
  • The EcoMAX engines deliver a massive 525 Nm in the VM117 at low engine speeds for optimum responsiveness, while EcoMAX also produces high power and torque at just 2200 rpm for fuel-efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.
  • With EcoMAX, your VM117 will save you money on servicing because exhaust after-treatment (and, therefore, costly heat-resistant lube oils) are unnecessary.

QUALITY, RELIABILITY, AND DURABILITY

  • For maximum reliability, the new exciter system of the VM117 only has 2 moving parts, and we’ve installed fully sealed IP69 electrics to withstand high volumes of water and dust.
  • All of our soil compactors are subjected to a 2-hour hot test to make sure they’re ready for trouble-free use from day one.
  • Our soil compactors benefit from advanced manufacturing and assembly processes to ensure maximum precision and quality of components.
  • To prove our EcoMAX engines’ durability, we’ve done 110,000 hours of testing in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.
  • The frame of the VM117 is designed using finite element analysis, and it’s fully strain gauged. It’s also tried and tested in various machines, applications and environments.
  • The bonnet and rear lights of the VM117 soil compactor is protected by the rear structure and chassis against impact damage.

HIGH VISIBILITY

  • There’s superb all-round visibility on a VM117 soil compactor, courtesy of a pillarless front cab design, and a sloping rear bonnet.
  • We use flat glass panels on these soil compactors (unlike our competitors), which makes replacement quick and easy.
  • Precise and productive soil compacting is guaranteed thanks to our new clear view front screen and minimal front display, which provide an unrestricted view to the front drum edges.
  • To improve safety and precision during operation, there’s a low rear bonnet profile and no exhaust pipe in the field of vision, which makes for an unrestricted view to the rear and corners of the VM117.
  • The design of these soil compactors incorporates low rear glass and an angled bonnet profile for an unrestricted view of the rear edge.
  • Because our EcoMAX engine doesn’t need bulky exhaust after-treatment, it’s a very compact unit, ensuring great visibility and maneuverability.

COMFORT AND EASE OF USE

  • Operators can get working quickly on a VM117 with intuitive, easy-to-use and ergonomic controls, all laid out in the industry standard. Our easily adjustable tilting steering column provides maximum comfort too.
  • These soil compactors boast a range of seat options, including a pivoting base design, mechanical or air suspension and vinyl or fabric bases. Our Premium seat option has air suspension, lumbar support, armrests, backrest extension and a heating.
  • When operators are getting in and out of a VM117, there are three points of contact at all times; access steps are inclined and equally spaced, and there are well-positioned grab handles.
  • To make life easier, you only need one key to operate the ignition, door and bonnet of a VM117.
  • JCB’s standard-fit automatic vibration control (AVC) activates whenever the drive lever is moved from the neutral position. Because vibrations are stopped when your machine is at a standstill, this avoids unwanted compaction.
  • For fatigue-free all-day operation, these soil compactors are designed to offer low noise levels. By mechanically isolating the driver’s seat, steering column, lever and cab, we’ve ensured class-leading low vibration levels too.

SUPERB SERVICEABILITY

  • For ease of servicing, the VM117 is designed so that all daily checks can be done from ground level on one side. A wide-opening rear bonnet gives fast access to the easily cleaned radiator and to the battery.
  • The cooling pack of these soil compactors is easy to get into and clean – which optimises engine cooling. Likewise the fuel tank, which is behind simple access panels for easy cleaning in case of contamination.
  • Electronics testing and servicing are quick and easy on a VM117 because service ports, key fuses and the isolator key are all centralised.
  • To extend service intervals (and therefore productivity) both of these soil compactors feature a cyclonic air cleaner which reduces debris build up in the air filter. An air intake scavenge system then removes the debris.
  • You never need to grease a VM117. Centre joint bearings are Teflon-coated and the centre joint itself is sealed for a grease-free zero-maintenance life. The exciter shaft vibration bearings are maintenance-free too.
  • The fully bolted front frame has no protruding bolt heads. A raised front beam position allows quick cleaning of drum scrapers and JCB’s unique preloaded rubber mountings, meanwhile, ensure long service life and reduced running costs.

The JCB VM137 is all-new and supremely productive. Boasting the kind of innovation and design expertise you’d expect from JCB Compaction, these soil compactors offer a host of performance, comfort, safety and efficiency features.

Like our new award-winning EcoMAX T4i-compliant engine, which meets Tier 4i legislation without bulky DPF or SCR; compact installation provides uncompromised visibility and maneuverability. The VM137 also has up to 60% gradeability, a new exciter system, an all-day comfy ergonomic cab, great ease of maintenance, and strong residuals.

OVERVIEW:

COMPLETE COMPACTION

  • Expect ultimate homogeneous compaction performance in few passes on every surface from sand to rock, courtesy of optimized dual amplitude and frequency settings, high centrifugal forces (VM137 – max. 282 kN), increased static linear load and vibrating mass.
  • Both the VM137 boasts quick (up to 11 km/h) travel times around site, which speeds up preparation for the next pass.
  • A tight turning circle also makes these soil compactors supremely maneuverable
  • Our EcoMAX-engined VM137 soil compactor offers a superb 60% gradeability for great versatility and productivity.
  • If you plan to use your VM137 soil compactor on clay, choose our pad foot drum to improve water evaporation and, therefore, create more stable soil. For added versatility, choose a pad foot shell kit.
  • Choose from a variety of compaction measurement systems, including our COMPATRONIC NAV, which displays all the machine’s working parameters and uses a GPS sensor to provide tracking and documentation functions.

PRODUCTIVITY MAXIMIZED

  • JCB’s EcoMAX engine uses less fuel than our Tier 3 engines thanks to – amongst other things – our variable geometry turbo. The standard variable speed fan provides another fuel savings of up to 6%.
  • The EcoMAX engines deliver a massive 560 Nm in VM137  at low engine speeds for optimum responsiveness, while EcoMAX also produces high power and torque at just 2200 rpm for fuel-efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.
  • With EcoMAX, your VM137 will save you money on servicing because exhaust after-treatment (and, therefore, costly heat-resistant lube oils) are unnecessary.

QUALITY, RELIABILITY AND DURABILITY

  • For maximum reliability, the new exciter system of the VM137 only has 2 moving parts, and we’ve installed fully sealed IP69 electrics to withstand high volumes of water and dust.
  • All of our soil compactors are subjected to a 2-hour hot test to make sure they’re ready for trouble-free use from day one.
  • Our soil compactors benefit from advanced manufacturing and assembly processes to ensure maximum precision and quality of components.
  • To prove our EcoMAX engines’ durability, we’ve done 110,000 hours of testing in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.
  • The frame of the VM137 is designed using finite element analysis, and it’s fully strain gauged. It’s also tried and tested in various machines, applications and environments.
  • The bonnet and rear lights of the VM137 soil compactor is protected by the rear structure and chassis against impact damage.

HIGH VISIBILITY 

  • There’s superb all-round visibility on a VM137 soil compactor, courtesy of a pillarless front cab design, and a sloping rear bonnet.
  • We use flat glass panels on these soil compactors (unlike our competitors), which makes replacement quick and easy.
  • Precise and productive soil compacting is guaranteed thanks to our new clear view front screen and minimal front display, which provide an unrestricted view to the front drum edges.
  • To improve safety and precision during operation, there’s a low rear bonnet profile and no exhaust pipe in the field of vision, which makes for an unrestricted view to the rear and corners of the VM117 and VM137.
  • The design of these soil compactors incorporates low rear glass and an angled bonnet profile for an unrestricted view of the rear edge.
  • Because our EcoMAX engine doesn’t need bulky exhaust after-treatment, it’s a very compact unit, ensuring great visibility and maneuverability.

COMFORT AND EASE  OF USE

  • Operators can get working quickly on a VM137 with intuitive, easy-to-use and ergonomic controls, all laid out in the industry standard. Our easily adjustable tilting steering column provides maximum comfort too.
  • These soil compactors boast a range of seat options, including a pivoting base design, mechanical or air suspension and vinyl or fabric bases. Our Premium seat option has air suspension, lumbar support, armrests, backrest extension and a heating.
  • When operators are getting in and out of a VM137, there are three points of contact at all times; access steps are inclined and equally spaced, and there are well-positioned grab handles.
  • To make life easier, you only need one key to operate the ignition, door and bonnet of a VM137.
  • JCB’s standard-fit automatic vibration control (AVC) activates whenever the drive lever is moved from the neutral position. Because vibrations are stopped when your machine is at a standstill, this avoids unwanted compaction.
  • For fatigue-free all-day operation, these soil compactors are designed to offer low noise levels. By mechanically isolating the driver’s seat, steering column, lever and cab, we’ve ensured class-leading low vibration levels too.

SUPERB SERVICEABILITY 

  • For ease of servicing, the VM137 is designed so that all daily checks can be done from ground level on one side. A wide-opening rear bonnet gives fast access to the easily cleaned radiator and to the battery.
  • The cooling pack of these soil compactors is easy to get into and clean – which optimises engine cooling. Likewise the fuel tank, which is behind simple access panels for easy cleaning in case of contamination.
  • Electronics testing and servicing are quick and easy on a VM137 because service ports, key fuses and the isolator key are all centralised.
  • To extend service intervals (and therefore productivity) both of these soil compactors feature a cyclonic air cleaner which reduces debris build up in the air filter. An air intake scavenge system then removes the debris.
  • You never need to grease a VM137. Centre joint bearings are Teflon-coated and the centre joint itself is sealed for a grease-free zero-maintenance life. The exciter shaft vibration bearings are maintenance-free too.
  • The fully bolted front frame has no protruding bolt heads. A raised front beam position allows quick cleaning of drum scrapers and JCB’s unique preloaded rubber mountings, meanwhile, ensure long service life and reduced running costs.
