In addition to its increased power, the compactor is fitted with a redesigned operator's cabin featuring improved controls enhancing operator performance and comfort. With tinted safety glass throughout, the cabin now offers better all-around visibility. An easy to understand control layout and an adjustable steering column make operation simple and comfortable. A load-sensing system provides smoother and lighter steering and blade control.
The ergonomically-designed work environment includes industry-low cabin noise of less than 75 dba, cab heating, heated and air suspended seat, AM/FM stereo cassette and air conditioning. In addition, the machine's ventilation system draws air through a fine filter and slightly pressurizes the cab to provide a comfortable work atmosphere and prevent the entry of polluted air into the cabin. The frame features a sealed-tub design that helps eliminate the need for belly pans and protects drive components from damage.
A center-articulated joint, designed to withstand extreme conditions, provides ±40° steering angle, while the slew-ring oscillation joint allows ±15° movement, keeping all wheels in contact with the ground for increased traction and compaction control. Optional leveling blades, available in widths of 12 ft., 6 in., and 14 ft., are designed for evenly spreading refuse to increase uniform compaction. Blade adjustment ranges from 8 in. below grade to 4 ft. above. Two adjustable scraper bar assemblies per wheel prevent refuse debris build-up on wheels to ensure maximum tooth penetration. Also, two wire cutters per wheel protect against wire wrap-around and subsequent damage to seals and other components.
Other maintenance-saving features of the BC771RB compactor include extended radiator cleaning intervals from five times to once a week, extended hydraulic oil change intervals up to 2,000 operating hours, and a central lubrication system servicing 13 front and rear fram-located grease fittings once each operating hour.
