SAKAI AMERICA, INC.
SAKAI America, Inc. completed the first production unit of the new SV414ND model with user-selectable oscillation & vibration which saves the need for separate machines. Prior to this, contractors have had only one brand from which to source oscillating soil compactors. Like other “ND” designated models from SAKAI, the SV414ND features oscillation AND vibration capability in the same drum. SAKAI oscillation is uniquely gear-driven, as opposed to belt-driven, saving equipment managers the time, hassle, and expense of belt servicing. The SV414ND is an 8-ton class 67-inch soil roller powered by a Cummins QSF 2.8 with 74 hp and is built in Adairsville, Georgia, USA. For more, visit www.sakaiamerica.com.
