THE RICHIER A625 ROAD ROLLER--COMBINING MAJOR COMPONENTS OF A VIBRATING ROAD ROLLER AND A WHEEL LOADER TO CREATE A NEW MACHINE

The A625 road roller represents a combination of the Ford A62 wheel loader, the smallest in a range of three articulated loaders, and the Richier (France) CV415 road roller, a 17-ton vibrating roller. The A625 meets the marketing objective of introducing a new self-propelled road roller in the 10-ton class. It meets the engineering requirements of reliability and ease of operation by utilizing the experience gained in the field with the shovel loader and roller. The new vehicle limits complexity, both in production and in service, by utilizing more than 80% of existing components. The contributions of each parent machine are listed and discussed.
