The performance you expect

Time is of the essence for road building contractors who need to get a job done by an agreed date. That makes them dependent on reliable, safe and powerful machines that can clear, compact and level the ground and build the layers for a durable, weather-resistant road. Advanced hydraulic systems from Danfoss deliver the machine performance that ensures road builders can meet their deadlines.

If you’re an OEM that produces machines for road building, you’ll find Danfoss is a strong partner. We analyze the transmission, steering and work function requirements of your machine and then design the total vehicle concept to meet all needs – whether maneuvering on uneven terrain or transporting materials from one site to another.

As operators often switch between different machines during a single work shift, an intuitive and ergonomic human machine interface (HMI) is a must. This is where Danfoss PLUS+1® controls are outstanding. By knitting all the hydraulic sub-systems on the machine efficiently and seamlessly together, intelligent PLUS+1® software manages machine operations perfectly.

Our H1 pumps and motors, modular PVG valves, fan drives and steering systems provide the performance you expect – day after day.

It’s even possible to monitor, manage and upgrade an entire machine fleet remotely. Danfoss Telematics solutions keep you connected.
