TÜV tested: Atlas Copco LP6500 Duplex Roller offering top operator comfort
The high level of operator comfort offered by the LP6500 Duplex Roller is a direct result of Atlas Copco’s continuous focus on ergonomic design. Recently, in a test* performed by the independent technical inspection organization TÜV Nord, the LP6500 was compared with two similar duplex roller models from other manufacturers. The test provided confirmation that the LP6500 has lower vibrations in the handle and lower machine noise than the other machines tested.
In the vibration test the LP6500 showed a hand-arm vibration level of only 4.14 m/s2 in the top handle, while one competing roller was measured at 7.01 m/s2 in the direction handle. Thus the hand-arm vibration level in the handle of the LP6500 is 2.87 m/s2 lower, which means considerably less strain on the operator during a working day. In the noise emission test, the LP6500 showed a sound pressure level of only 89 dB(A), which is 3 dB(A) lower than one of the competing machines, and 6 dB(A) lower than the other.
provides high compaction efficiency on thin granular soil layers, such as sand and gravel. When compacting silt, the compaction effect depends largely on water content and the LP6500 is most effective on thin layers. On asphalt the end results are excellent and the LP6500 is well suited for smaller jobs in areas such as pavement construction or repair, narrow roads, playgrounds or parking lots.
