About the MC 85

  • 24HP Kubota Engine
  • 1622kg
  • 2 different vibration settings - 73kn and 36kn
  • Full UHF remote system - NOT Infared
  • Tough Rotary Molded Hoods


The new MC 85 trench roller is ideal for use on wet clay-like and silty soils where conventional soil compactors can no longer be used. Powerful and robust, it ensures outstanding compaction with simple and safe operation. 
Effective, energy efficient soil compaction with maximum safety – that is what the new MC 85 trench roller stands for. Thanks to the high centrifugal force combined with the kneading effect of the sheepsfoot drums, this trench roller enables maximum performance when compacting cohesive soils. The hydraulic articulated steering offers good traction without the freshly compacted soil being torn open when the drums turn.
From pipeline and sewer construction to the compaction of base layers for foundations, paths or parking lots, this new power pack delivers optimal results, even on more difficult soils with very high water content. 

Key Advantages

  • Modern and powerful water-cooled, 3 cylinder Kubota Diesel engine, meeting current EU emissions standards (stage V and Tier 4f).
  • Low operating costs - Eco mode switches the engine to idle speed when the remote control is not being operated. Protects the environment and saves fuel costs.
  • Extremely easy to use and efficient - The fail safe remote is very self-explanatory making it easy to use for multiple operators on the job.
  • Service friendly - machine diagnostics can be carried out via the radio remote control.
  • Operator safety - The machine automatically stops if the distance between the operator and the mower is closer than 2m or more than 20m.
  • Long service life - The exciter housing is completely sealed within the rollers - this prevents damage caused by water ingress. All hydraulic hoses are securely installed and fully protected against chafing or damage.
  • Easy maintenance - the oil lubricated vibration exciters ensure a long service life
  • Versatile - the choice between two compaction settings enables universal use on the construction site.

MC 85 Trench Roller – first-class performance

Equipped with a modern and powerful, water-cooled 3-cylinder diesel engine from Kubota, the MC 85 trench roller fulfills all emission regulations according to Stage V and TIER 4f. With low fuel consumption per hour and practical eco-mode, it is especially energy efficient and economical. If the remote control is not being operated, the engine automatically switches to idle speed. 
Thanks to the easy-to-understand and dependable radio remote control, the operator can move at a safe distance from the roller without losing control of the machine. The machine stops automatically as soon as the distance between the operator and the machine is closer than 6.5 feet or further than 65 feet. 
In addition to low operating costs and comfort, the new MC 85 trench roller also impresses in terms of durability and operational safety. The exciter housing is completely sealed within the rollers and offers reliable protection against the ingress of water, dirt and associate damage. In addition, all hydraulic hoses are securely installed and fully protected against chafing or damage. The oi-lubricated vibration exciters make maintenance easier and ensure a long service life. 

Additional Features: The operator can choose between two driving speeds and two compaction settings (8,093 and 16,411 lbs.). Vibration is optional and can be switched on using the automatic function.  Also, the protective, wide-hinged hood covering the engine simplifies maintenance and can be locked if necessary.
