Volvo SD105 Soil Compactors Easily Convert From Smooth to Padfoot

Updated Oct 6, 2010

Volvo SD105DX and SD105F padfoot model are both versatile yet provide excellent drum performance and a comfortable environment for the operators. The operating weight of the smooth drum machines is 23,700 pounds (10748 kilograms) and the padfoot configuration weighs 25,100 pounds (11383 kilograms). These models have a drum width of 90 inches (2286 millimeters). The SD105DX has a centrifugal force of 59,000 pounds (261 kiloNewtons); the SD105F has a centrifugal force of 78,000 pounds (347 kiloNewtons). 


Utilizing the patented Volvo two-piece, clamp-on padfoot shell kit, the SD105DX converts easily from a smooth drum to a padfoot drum so that contractors can handle all types of soils. Strike-off blade options are available for each type of drum. 


Both models are powered by a 125-horsepower (93.2-kilowatt), four-cylinder diesel engine. The Ultra-Grade® full-time traction control system helps ensure the compactor’s ability to climb and maneuver in the toughest soil conditions. 


The Volvo SD105 soil compactors reduce overall maintenance time and costs, with features such as a tilting operator platform for accessing hydraulic components; remote-mounted and centrally located hydraulic test ports and hydraulic filters; a one-piece engine cover and a rear-mounted cooling system for easy access and cleaning.
