Sakai SW850ND Offers Complete Control on a Large Scale

Adairsville, GA, June 27, 2014 – Sakai America understands that it takes a special kind of asphalt roller to handle no-vibe paving jobs, where structural integrity is a concern.  Sakai answers this problem with its ND Series, featuring Oscillation & Vibration in both drums.  The ND Series includes the 57” SW652ND, the 67” SW770ND, and its most recent addition, the 79” SW850ND.


SW652ND; Operating weight: 16,865 lbs | 7,550 kg

SW770ND; Operating weight: 23,810 lbs | 10,800 kg

SW850ND; Operating Weight: 29,480 lbs | 13,370 kg


Denver Weinstiger, Vice President Sales and Support for Sakai America explains, “We’ve received a tremendous response from the field regarding our 79” oscillatory/vibratory roller.  Customers can easily switch back and forth between oscillation and vibration in both drums.  We’re proud to offer the SW850ND, as it provides control and versatility that none of our competitors can achieve.”  Weinstiger goes on to say, “The oscillating system on the SW850ND is gear based, which can only mean one thing – no belts!”

In addition, low amplitude allows for faster speeds so that the SW850ND easily keeps up with the paver.

Word from the jobsites has been that operators are able to get the job done quickly and with great precision.  This is something that isn’t just hoped for in the paving industry, but is a necessity for success.

Mark D. Armel, Heavy Equipment District Manager for Northeastern US and Eastern Canada remarked that, “This type of versatility allows our customers with shorter optimal seasons and challenging terrain to handle the job just right.”

Armel went on to say, “Having the controls within easy reach on the instrument panel has been beneficial as well, in some of the more congested work zones.”

Dealers have also noted that the shock isolation system is superior to what they have experienced from other models in a similar class.

Weinstiger noted, “We could not be happier with the feedback received so far for the SW850ND.  The main thing we keep hearing is that switching between oscillation and vibration in both drums makes a world of difference.”
