The JCB VM 1500F high-impact ground compactor is just like the VM 1500M except it’s remote controlled. It’s still designed for maximum productivity on a variety of different soils.

Unlike infrared or cable systems JCBs radio remote control system allows to operate the machine with obstacles in between as it often happens in its typical application – in trenches. This ensures a maximum operating safety and comfort.

The VM 1500F trench roller is a class-leading performer and, when you look at the spec, it’s easy to see why. Our compaction rollers feature 4-drum drive steering and a center-mounted vibration exciter system.

It also features an extremely high robustness considering the typical application in very confined areas for that kind of machine: all covers are made of robust steel to avoid damages.

There’s hydrodynamic braking, a quiet 23hp (16.8kW) 3-cylinder Kubota water-cooled engine, dual scrapers on each drum, an electric start and an engine pre-heater.

Operator and Machine Safety

The VM 1500F trench roller is safe in every way. There’s automatic engine shut down if the machine tips over and a safety control bar to protect the operator.

To protect the trench roller from unwanted attention, there’s a lockable access hood as well as battery, fuel and hydraulic oil tank theft/vandalism protection.

Serviceability and Transportability

To make sure the VM 1500F trench roller spends as much time as possible working hard, we’ve made it easy to service and transport.

An hour meter, hydraulic level sight gauge and indicator lights (for alternator, water temperature and low engine oil) allow you to keep an eye on service requirements. And servicing itself is kept to a minimum on this trench roller by the permanently lubricated, center-mounted vibration exciter system. When servicing does need to be carried out, there’s class-leading access to all components.

Finally, the VM 1500F trench roller has a central lifting eye to aid lifting and textile stripes to protect rubber mountings when lifted.
