We have used road rollers available for sale at Fenton Plant Machinery. A road roller (sometimes just called a roller) is a compactor-type machine used to compact soil, gravel, concrete, or asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations. Similar rollers are used also at landfills or in agriculture. Road rollers use the weight of the vehicle to compress the surface being rolled. Rollers are used predominantly for road resurfacing, groundworks etc.

Depending upon the project requirement and material to be compacted, different types of rollers are used for compaction work. The various types of rollers which are used for compaction are:

  1. Single Drum Rollers
  2. Twin Drum Rollers
  3. Pneumatic tyred Rollers
  4. Smooth wheeled Rollers
  5. Vibratory Rollers

The most popular road rollers that are used in the road and construction industries are the smooth drum rollers.

Smooth wheel rollers are most suitable for consolidating stone soling, gravel, sand, hard core, ballast and surface dressings. They are not so suitable for consolidating embankments and soft sub-grades, but are better suited than any other plant for compacting silty and sandy soils and with fewer passes. When the moisture content is a little more than optimum it will compact more easily.
