Water Spray System

Water Tank
A single high-capacity polyethylene water tank is enclosed within the machine frame. The tank design provides extended operation, a single fill point and a single drain port.

Back-up System
There is a complete back-up system controlled from the operator's station.

Spray System
The CB434D XW has constant or intermittent spray capabilities for longer operation between fill-ups. The intermittent spray is infinitely variable allowing fine-tuning for any condition. A quick-release spray bar cover protects spray from wind. An on/off spray control is provided on the propel lever to simplify operation.

Water Filtration
Triple water filtration reduces machine downtime caused by system clogs.

Two Pump System
The system has two pumps but only one pump operates at a time, doubling pump life in terms of machine hours. An auto pump control setting selects water from one pump while traveling forward and water from the other pump while traveling rearward. The system maintains even pump usage for uniform life. Manual override control is provided. The water pumps and in-line filters are conveniently grouped and located in the hitch area for easy service. The long-life water pumps are self priming and pressure regulating to provide optimum spray and flow.

On/Off Spray Control
The spray control is located on the propel lever providing simple operation.

Quick-Release Spray Bars Covers
Quick-release spray bar covers shield the spray bars and nozzles from wind and sun, allowing the spray nozzles to provide consistent coverage across the drum surface.

Freeze Protection Kit (Optional)
The freeze protection kit includes an in-line antifreeze bottle that allows the operator to pump antifreeze into the system.

Extra Wide Drums
The CB434D XW offers a wider drum for increased production and versatility.

Extra Wide Drums

Wider Drum Width
The CB434D XW incorporates a drum width of 1.7 m (67") providing increased lane coverage resulting infewer passes.

Operating Weight
The operating weight of the CB434D XW is 7700 kg (16,979 lb) providing a centrifugal force of 78 kN (17,550 lb).

Vibratory Systems
The CB434D XW can be equippedwith the five amplitude or thedual amplitude, dual frequency vibratory systems. Both systems offer effective operation on thick or thin lift applications.

Excellent operator visibility to the work surface increases production.


Visibility to Objects
Visibility to objects 1 m (3.3') high and 1 m (3.3') in front of the machine or behind the machine. The CB434D XW design also provides excellent visibility to the drum surfaces and the drum edges.

Bumper Design
A raised bumper design allows maximum visibility and movement in forward and reverse.

Sloped Hood
The sloped hood of the CB434D XW provides excellent visibility to the rear and sides of the machine.

Vertical Folded Drum Supports
Vertical folded drum supports provide clear view of drum edge and pavement well ahead of the drum. Angled supports have high clearance for work against barriers and walls.

Control Console Platform
The control console platform has nine rotating positions and seven sliding positions that provide excellent visibility to the drum surfaces and the drum edges.

Operator's Station
The operator's station of the CB434D XW is ergonomically designed for maximum operator productivity while offering good visibility and unmatched comfort.

Isolated Operator's Station
The operator's station is isolated with four heavy-duty rubber mounts which reduce machine vibration to the operator.

Automatic Speed Control
A speed control dial located on the operator’s console simplifies operation by allowing the operator to preset the machine speed or impact spacing. The speed control dial allows the operator to push the propel lever to the forward or reverse positions while repeating the desired speed or impactspacing.

Centered Articulation
Centered articulation with 50% of the machine length behind the pivot and 50% forward delivers evenly balanced weight front to rear. Drums track in the same path even in turns.

Forward and Reverse
The operator can concentrate on only one drum when entering or leaving a curve resulting in the identical response for forward and reverse along any curve. This helps prevent damage to existing structures when moving away from curbs and other objects.
