VMD 70

The JCB VMD 70 is the smaller of our two class-leading double drum walk behind rollers. It’s powered by a 462 cc 6.6 kW Hatz engine and it offers best-in-class productivity, manoeuvrability, kerb clearance, safety and serviceability. Operating weight is 740 kg, centrifugal force is 21.9 kN and drum width is 650 mm.

Designed in direct response to customer feedback, our double drum walk behind rollers offer versatility in even the tightest spaces. They’re fully hydrostatic for traction and reliability, and they’re comfortable and easy to use. This makes them very productive, but that’s only the beginning of the built-in productivity.

The JCB VMD 70 double drum walk behind roller is a very safe machine. For starters, low noise levels make life easier on operator and environment alike. An improved crush-zone cut-out switch is easily accessible on the end of the control arm and needs to be manually reset if activated for improved site safety.

A combination of simple, clever design and JCB build quality keeps maintenance costs down. Service access is improved over previous machines too, helping you stay up and running.
