Volvo Single Drum Compactors SD70D, SD70F

Updated Oct 6, 2010

Volvo Construction Equipment is different. It’s designed, built and supported in a different way. That difference comes from an engineering heritage of over 175 years. A heritage of thinking first about the people who actually use the machines. About how to help them be safer, more comfortable and more productive. About the environment we all share. The result of that thinking is a growing range of machines and a global support network dedicated to helping you do more. People around the world are proud to use Volvo. And we’re proud of what makes Volvo different- More care. Built in.

Volvo SD70 vibratory soil compactors are designed with many innovative features that offer excellent drum performance and reliability while providing a safe and comfortable environment for the operator. Both models are engineered and efficiently and effectively compact a variety of soil types while the powerful eccentric system with dual amplitude and frequency provides versatility on thin or thick material lifts.
