In 2018, Indonesia plans to build 856 km of new roads across the archipelago as part of the government’s infrastructure push[1], according to The Economist. To meet this increased demand for reliable and productive road construction equipment, SDLG recently launched the RD730 3 t-rated road roller in Indonesia.

“Recent infrastructure projects in Indonesia, such as the Trans-Sumatra Toll Road, are indicative of the growing demand for dependable road construction equipment in the country,” says Victor Zhao, Vice General Manager for SDLG Import and Export Company. “The RD730 not only bolsters SDLG’s product range in Indonesia but is also an excellent reliable value option for construction companies.”

At the launch event on July 18 in the capital, Jakarta, Zhao met with customers, dealers and press from across the country. The event was also an occasion for the company to celebrate the sale of its 1,000th wheel loader in Indonesia

Powerful and operator-friendly 

The RD730 is ideal for general road compaction, from small to large-scale infrastructure projects such as roads, highways and airports. The new high-torque road roller can handle compressing, kneading and sealing tasks for high quality, smooth roads. The first unit has already been sold and delivered to PT Gemela International, which is using it for road compaction at a hotel on the resort island of Lombok.  

The RD730 features a Kubota D1803-M-E3B engine to offer 24.8 kW of power at 2,400 rpm, maximum compaction width of 1,200 mm and maximum speed of 10.5 km/h. The RD730 uses proven hydraulic components to provide even and high tractive force across the front and rear drives. Operators can easily change vibration frequencies from 55-67 Hz to meet paving requirements.

Several design features were added to augment the user experience, such as ergonomically designed operating platform to offer better visibility and operator comfort. The machine also features a 220 L water tank, so operators can easily adjust the time between water sprays to the drums and spend less time refilling. 

“We are excited to introduce the RD730 for the Indonesia market as it’ll help customers become more efficient on road construction projects,” Zhao says. “SDLG remains committed to the Indonesian market. We look forward to helping our customers expand their operations with more product offerings.”
