Heavy equipment rollers

A flat land surface is crucial for people to walk around. For instance, a construction site needs to have flat land as that will enable the workers to walk easily. At the same time it will also allow the heavy equipment to move without many hurdles. It has witnessed that an uneven land often cause enormous problems to people moving over it. It also becomes the reason of many accidents happening in that spot. The logic is pretty simple. If you are not able to move easily, you tend to fall down quite often and being in a construction site you can’t afford to fall every now and then due to uneven surface. That is just not acceptable and which is why the need of rollers to flatten the land is pretty much needed. A construction company can’t afford too many accidents or injuries happening on his site just for a lame reason like uneven roads/paths.

It is quite interesting to know that there are different types of heavy equipment used to roll the roads to make it smooth. At the same time such equipment are not as expensive as other construction machines are. However, if you consider equipment that are used for major road construction projects the requirement of such machines may differ and the need to execute more advanced ones may arise.

There are different types of rollers used to roll the land. Not the quality of every road is the same and therefore it needs different types of rollers on it. Equipment like Rammers are used where the compact on the soil is less and it can be operated by hand or by machine. Rammers are small equipment and therefore need not be fitted in machines. Many people do it using their hand and avoid fitting it in some machine. There are few Rammers which are large in size and may weigh in tons. It is basically those Rammers that are fitted in machines to operate.

Speaking about smooth wheeled rollers, they are ideally of 2 types. The first one is static and the second is vibrating smooth wheeled rollers. These rollers are used in soil which has high proportion of sand, asphalt, gravel or crushed rock. They are worked on soil that does not need more compaction and are used for giving a finishing layer to the upper surface of the land. Its performance is widely dependent on the kind of drum that is attached to it. Heavier the drum the more impact it has on the soil. This roller has one drum at the front and 2 tires at the rear. The weight of the drums can be increased or decreased as per the requirement.

These kinds of machines are also low on maintenance but may have high fuel consumption. It all depends upon the kind of activity it is conducting. The vibrating wheeled rollers have wheels that vibrate when it begins to roll. These rollers are used where the compaction required is more and can reach to greater depths. The performance of this roller is far more than that of the conventional ones.
