Coal Compaction

Take no risks

Coal Compaction

Dressta dozers can be equipped with additional mounting compaction equipment for slope rolling tasks. By compacting the surface area of the slope air pockets are eliminated, thus reducing the risk of heat build-up leading to the combustion of trapped air. The Dressta slope rolling attachment itself is both reliable and easy to operate.

We are able to listen, advise and implement Special Feature Requests (SFR) to ensure your slope rolling attachment is ideally matched for the task at hand. Take a look at how our machines excel on the slopes.

If you cannot find the model below with the appropriate engine configuration (Emission Levels: Tier 3, Tier 4 Interim, Tier 4 Final) for your region, please email us or contact your local dealer.

Slope rolling tasks are performed by attaching a specially designed steel compaction drum to a winch line on the back of the Dressta dozer, allowing the compaction drum to be deployed on the slope of the stockpile.


The drum is equipped with brackets to attach it to a tense winch line, with a line tensioning system to prevent it contacting the slope during or after operation. A mechanism ensures optimal line guiding and tensioning, and a cleaning system is implemented to remove coal contamination.

The joystick-controlled drum support system means the crawler dozer can be used for other tasks while the compaction drum is attached.

Superior Dozer Stability

Dressta crawler dozers can operate on a maximum slope gradient of 25° for length-wise slopes, and 20° for cross-wise slopes.

Features & Benefits

Optimal power to weight ratio for unrivalled traction & drawbar pull…

The TD-25R Extra sets the standards for others to follow and is a result of DRESSTA’s experience in designing highly efficient and productive Crawler Dozers.

Design concepts utilised in the TD-25R Extra include, optimisation of weight distribution, modular construction, and use of a one-piece main frame, two-speed Steering Drive and a 3-point track mounting system. Optimal performance is achieved when machine weight is matched to power and the TD-25R Extra provides a second-to-none balance of weight for traction and power for unrivalled drawbar pull.
