VMT 380-130/140

The new JCB VMT 380-130/140 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 vibratory roller 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, VMT380-130/140 compaction rollers are also ideal for a wide range of workplaces, including yards, access roads, residential streets, car parks, roads, highways and airports.

Weighing 3750 to 3850 kg and powered by a four cylinder 33.6 kW motor, the VMT 380-130/140 has an operating width of 1300 – 1400 mm and generates centrifugal forces of 59 to 63 kN. There’s an adjustable seat for comfort and productivity.

  • 1300 – 1400 mm operating width
  • 0.44 mm amplitude for maximum compaction depth
  • Low noise levels
  • Low vibration levels
  • Switchable drum vibration
  • Single-piece circular eccentric shafts

PERFORMANCE

To ensure maximum productivity, we’ve designed the VMT 380-130/140 road roller with performance to the fore. That’s why it comes equipped with 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 vibratory roller has a single-piece exciter system 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 380-130/140 road roller even more productive.

Amplitude of 0.44 mm gives maximum compaction depth, 42% gradability is class-leading, there are three throttle detent positions and even switchable drum vibration; choose from double, single front or single rear configurations.

SERVICEABILITY AND DURABILITY

To keep the VMT 380-130/140 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. Plus the drums come with pre-loaded rubber mountings for increased component life-time and protection of hydraulic installations at the drum.

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 380-130/140 road roller is ready to roll when it leaves the factory, we bench test each individual machine as part of an intensive test-run.

PRODUCTIVITY MAXIMISED.

TO ENSURE MAXIMUM PRODUCTIVITY, WE'VE DESIGNED THE VMT380 WITH PERFORMANCE TO THE FORE.

- Our automatic vibration control activates whenever the drive lever is moved from the neutral position, providing the perfect finish at layer ends.
- With three frequency settings (50/59/66 Hz), you can tailor your VMT machine to your exact requirements. 
- Class-leading 63kN vibrator performance makes for superb productivity.
- Class-leading gradeability of 42% for great versatility.

COMFORTABLY SUPERIOR.

WE'VE EQUIPPED THE VMT380 WITH A TAPERED FRONT FRAME AND LOW BONNET PROFILE, PROVIDING EXCELLENT VISIBILITY TO THE FRONT DRUM EDGES.

- The operator's seat can be laterally repositioned for improved versatility, comfort and visibility.
- A low rear water tank and low profile rear frame means excellent rear visibility.
- Controls are intuitive, easy to use and laid out to the industry standard for quick acclimatisation and maximum productivity.
- Tight turning circle makes for excellent manoeuvrability on confined sites.

ROLL ON SAFETY AND SECURITY

REDUCED NOISE AND CLASS-LEADING LOW VIBRATION LEVELS ALLOW FATIGUE-FREE ALL-DAY OPERATION.

- Our low vibration levels are achieved partly by mechanically isolating the driver's seat, steering column, lever and footplate.
- The optional flip over vandal cover protects the dashboard and controls from damage and unauthorised access.
- We've built wide non-slip access steps on both sides of these machines.
- A reflective paint and decal option makes a VMT380 clearly visible in all light conditions.

ROLL ON SERVICEABILITY.

TO GET THE BEST POSSIBLE RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT, YOU NEED TO MINIMISE DOWNTIME. TO DO THAT, YOU NEED MAXIMUM SERVICEABILITY. FORTUNATELY OUR VMT380 IS DESIGNED TO DO JUST THAT.

- The VMT380 is a grease free machine. All bearings are Teflon-coated and the centre joint is sealed for grease-free zero-maintenance use. Exciter shaft vibration bearings are maintenance-free.
- The 4 drum scrapers are spring loaded and easy to remove. An additional lock means you can position the scraper off the drum avoiding unnecessary wear of scrapers.
- We've designed unique 3-point preloaded rubber mountings, meaning that mounts can't be overloaded.
- Daily checks are easy and access is superb via a wide opening front bonnet. The radiator is easy to clean and you can access the battery without tools.
