The vibratory rollers are very versatile construction machinery that provides a great centrifugal force ideal for asphalt and concrete patching jobs. These lightweight and highly maneuverable rollers are designed to accelerate smoothly, thanks to their hydrostatic drive suitable for the compaction of sand, gravel, soil and asphalt. They have an automatic brake in the forward and reverse gear for operator safety. Double rollers are also available which are ideal for compaction of soil and asphalt in large works. The vibration of the drums provides high quality finishes on the asphalt.
A vibratory roller is a machine used to compact soil, gravel, concrete or asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations. Sometimes it is also called roller compactor, or simply roller. Similar rollers are also used in landfills or in agriculture.
The vibratory rollers use the weight of the vehicle to compress the surface being rolled (static) or use mechanical advantage (vibration). On large highways, a four-wheel compactor with drum and a blade, such as a Caterpillar 815/825 series machine, will be used due to its high weight, speed and powerful pushing force to spread bulk material. The next machine is usually a single smooth drum compactor that compacts the high points until the ground is smooth, and this is usually done in combination with a motor grader to get a level surface. Sometimes in this stage a tire roller is used. These rollers have two rows (front and rear) of overlapping tires, and the flexibility of the tires provides a kneading action that seals the surface and with some vertical movement of the wheels, allows the roller to work effectively in uneven terrain. The final stretch of asphalt concrete wear is established using a paver and compacted with a tandem soft drum roller, a three-point roller or a tire roller.
