Not all road rollers are the same! Probably one of the first things to decide when considering the purchase of a new roller, is whether a roller or flat plate compactor is going to be most appropriate. There's little doubt that when it comes to tarmac road, driveway or parking lot surfaces, a roller is going to be most appropriate. An absolute essential for road construction, a road roller benefits from enhanced manoeuvrability and speed - a good roller is capable of flattening a large area rapidly, making it a superb choice for civil engineering projects.
One of the limitations of a standard roller is that it lacks the vibratory action necessary to compact larger particles more closely together. A roller is excellent for firmer surfaces, but to ensure effective compaction of sand, silt, gravel or similar mediums, a vibratory roller or vibrating compactor plate is going to give you the results you're looking for. A vibratory roller combines the compaction properties that the roller provides with the additional performance which a vibratory action can bring.
Particularly when surfaces are being built that incorporate a firmer medium than tarmac, a pneumatic roller may be a better option. Pneumatic rollers operate using pneumatic tires, in contrast to traditional rollers, which utilise a metal drum. Pneumatic rollers can work particularly well where there is a need for closer compaction. Generating more static forces than a metal roller, a pneumatic roller enables particles to cluster together, increasing density and thereby improving the integrity of the surface.
