Double Drum Rollers

Double Drum Rollers

A double drum roller is a specific compacter-type vehicle used to compact asphalt, gravel, concrete etc. These are used typically in the construction of roads. These are usually available in multiple sizes and weights depending on task demands such maneuverability and the material to be compacted.

Padfoot/Sheepsfoot Rollers

Padfoot/Sheepsfoot Rollers

A padfoot drum roller is used for the initial compaction of the substrate on a road project. This achieves higher compaction density due to the pads having less surface area. These compactors usually have padfoot or "sheep's-foot" drums. They do not achieve a smooth surface. The pads aid in compression because they have a smaller area contacting the ground.

Remote Controlled Rollers

Remote Controlled Rollers

Remote Trench Rollers offer remotely controlled operation through the use of radio, infrared or cable technology. They are paramount for groundwork in hard-to-get-to areas and trenches, where other equipment would pose considerable danger to the operator. They are typically used for compacting asphalt for plots of land, or leveling the earth to prepare for smooth rollers.

Choose the right compaction roller

Choosing the right sized single drum roller packer is a matter of renting the largest possible, but not one that is too large to work on the site. If you have a congested work site, it is always better to err on the side of caution and rent a packer that is a little smaller than rent one that is too large. Being unable to navigate around the job site means not being able to compact material. That means a failed soil compaction test, which means no building permits.

Where you can use compaction roller

Roller packers are used to compact road base, asphalt and flatwork; to solidify slopes and embankments; to compact the bottom of trenches; and to compact soil prior to pouring a foundation. Any job too large for a plate compactor, jumping jack or walk behind roller packer will require the rental of a single drum roller if the ground is uneven or rocky. While single drum packers work fine on flat ground, the same can not be said for double drum packers on uneven ground. Common use cases for single drum rollers are generally locals where a double drum roller will not operate.
