  • Three-point articulated pendulum joint provides for even weight distribution and consistent compaction, even when navigating curves and uneven ground conditions
  • Rear wheels are driven by independent motors resulting in excellent ground clearance
  • Quick and easy maintenance with all access points located on one side of the machine
  • Excellent traction in a variety of conditions, enhancing productivity and safety
  • Models offered with either smooth drum for compaction of granular materials or padfoot drum for effective compaction of cohesive soils such as clay

Two types of drums:
Available with a smooth drum or padfoot drum

Master up to a 60% gradient

thanks to the wheel motors.

  • Drive system via hydraulic wheel motors
  • Distribution of the torque to the front and rear axle depending on the requirements
  • Efficient compaction on slopes

Compaction through vibration

Vibration for deep compaction

RC50 and RC50p



  • The RC50 is equipped with diamond tread tires as a standard.
  • The diamond tread ensures an optimal weight distribution across the entire surface of the tire.
  • The result: No more deep tire imprints in recently compacted asphalt.
