Expect ultimate homogenous compaction performance in few passes on every surface from sand to rock, courtesy of optimised dual amplitude and frequency settings, high centrifugal forces (VM117 – max. 256 kN), increased static linear load and vibrating mass.
The VM117 boasts quick (up to 11 km/h) travel times around site, which speeds up preparation for the next pass.
A tight turning circle also makes these soil compactors supremely manoeuvrable
Our EcoMAX-engined VM117 soil compactor offers a superb 60% gradeability for great versatility and productivity.
If you plan to use your VM117 soil compactor on clay, choose our pad foot drum to improve water evaporation and, therefore, create more stable soil. For added versatility, choose a pad foot shell kit.
Choose from a variety of compaction measurement systems, including our COMPATRONIC NAV, which displays all the machine’s working parameters and uses a GPS sensor to provide tracking and documentation functions.
Operators can get working quickly on a VM117 with intuitive, easy-to-use and ergonomic controls, all laid out in the industry standard. Our easily adjustable tilting steering column provides maximum comfort too.
These soil compactors boast a range of seat options, including a pivoting base design, mechanical or air suspension and vinyl or fabric bases. Our Premium seat option has air suspension, lumbar support, armrests, backrest extension and a heating.
When operators are getting in and out of a VM117, there are three points of contact at all times; access steps are inclined and equally spaced, and there are well-positioned grab handles.
To make life easier, you only need one key to operate the ignition, door and bonnet of a VM117.
JCB’s standard-fit automatic vibration control (AVC) activates whenever the drive lever is moved from the neutral position. Because vibrations are stopped when your machine is at a standstill, this avoids unwanted compaction.
For fatigue-free all-day operation, these soil compactors are designed to offer low noise levels. By mechanically isolating the driver’s seat, steering column, lever and cab, we’ve ensured class-leading low vibration levels too.
1) Advanced system for comprehensive compaction control
2) Coloured on-board display to aid operator
3) Three working modes to monitor compaction progress
4) Exchange of job data possible via USB or via mobile (GPRS) optional
