The Wacker Neuson RTLx-SC3 trench roller features a simple lower end design that is fully sealed and maintenance free and includes lifetime lubricated drive gears and maintenance-free exciter gears and bearing.
All the hydraulic hoses have been shortened and are now routed above the articulated joint and through the manifold support drums to avoid wear and improve hose serviceability. It is powered by a 19.8-horsepower Kohler diesel engine and produces a high and low compaction force (15,400/7,700 lb.-ft.) to provide flexibility depending on the application. Additionally, the drums can be converted from 32 to 22 inches to fit the application/trench. A low center of gravity improves machine stability, and the articulated joint increases maneuverability and allows the roller to make tight turns in confined spaces. It is operated with a line-of-sight infrared remote control.
