Sakai SV540 Rollout Receives Positive Feedback

Adairsville, GA, June 24, 2014 — Sakai America continues to receive outstanding feedback from the field, regarding the SV540, its most recent addition to the soil roller product line mix.  The model serves as an EPA tier upgrade of the SV510.

Powered by the Cummins QSB 4.5 diesel engine the SV540 meets EPA Interim Tier IV standards.

While the SV540 combines all of the mechanical advantages and heavy duty frame construction customers have come to expect over the years from Sakai, the model is also sure to provide a decrease in operating costs on the jobsite.

Changes don’t stop with the Cummins QSB 4.5 diesel engine however, as the SV540 contains new features designed with fuel economy, performance, and comfort in mind.

Sakai’s new ECO Compaction Mode, reduces fuel consumption on the jobsite by up to 20% – without sacrificing performance.

“We’re very excited about the fuel savings customers will enjoy with our new ECO Compaction Mode, included as standard with the SV540,” says Denver Weinstiger, Vice President of Sales and Support for Sakai America. Weinstiger goes on to say, “Once the operator climbs into the larger luxury cab, and checks out the enhancements we’ve made to automatic traction control, they will notice right away that their job has just gotten a whole lot easier.”

Product design engineers for the SV540 went the extra mile to ensure operator focus remains squarely on the job in front of them, by designing a cab where all vibration controls are located at instrument panel.  In addition, its superior shock isolation system ensures greater productivity, along with a smoother ride.

Weinstiger noted, “Our dealers are truly excited about all of the enhancements we’ve made with the introduction of the SV540, and we’re already hearing stories from the field in regard to fuel savings and performance.”
