Cross-mounted engines also offer opti- mal weight distribution and contribute to the units' minimal footprint. e CA1300 features a Tier-4 Final, 75-horsepower Kubota diesel engine, and the CA1500 uses a Tier-4 Interim, 100-horsepower Cummins diesel engine. Both have top-mounted, cool air intakes with side vents that combine with the ejector exhaust outlet to minimize engine noise and prevent dust from being sucked into the engine compartment, which is a common occurrence on soil compaction sites. e rollers' high static linear loads make them ideal for compacting a range of materials, from clay to rock fill. e CA1300 features a static linear load of 73 pounds per linear inch (PLI), and the CA1500 has 112 PLI. e compaction power is transferred through the rollers' drums to efficient- ly compact soil with minimal passes. e CA1300's 54-inch drum and the CA1500's 66-inch drum give operators optimal visibility and allow them to maneuver into tight work- spaces, such as pipe trenches or road shoulders. Atlas Copco's ABC system, an optional feature for the CA1500 through CA6500 models, prevents operators from over-compacting the soil, which can damage the rollers. e optional ABC system helps protect the frame and drum by detecting double jumping as soon as it begins to occur and shutting off the roller' vibration.
