Rent heavy equipment and make good money out of it rather than keeping it idle should be the intention of a person who has a construction machine and does not make any use of it. By renting heavy equipment people they not only make money by literally doing nothing but also ensure the machine does not go dead. If a construction machine has not been working for days there are higher chances that it will not even take a start on the day you need it.

If you have a compaction roller it will not at all be a problem to rent it because there are whole lot of people who wants compaction rollers (Sheep Foot or Smooth) for road building work.
Compaction rollers play a pivotal role in road construction and for leveling the ground. The Sheep Foot or Smooth rollers are used on the basis of the soil that they have to work on. So if you ever find a person who is looking for a compaction roller, do let them know the type of soil your machine can work on.
Take help of a Rental Salesman:-

Talking about the Caterpillar CB10 Asphalt Compactor Roller, it is known for its versatile vibratory systems, phenomenal visibility and control and for its smooth operating powertrain. The CB10 compactor roller is fitted with Auto Adjustable Compaction, Oscillation, 5 amplitude and VERSA-Vibe systems. There are a lot of options available to match the varying paving speeds. The hand-wheel steering technology gives it an edge over all other similar types of compactor rollers. In addition, it has touch-pad functions that make things simpler for the operator. We live in the age where we are used to devices with touch-pads and therefore it becomes a must to have one inside the machine.
Paving requirements can be different and the operator has to decide the kind of drums it needs to put in place. The CB10 roller has both split and solid drum designs which will give the operator the liberty to choose the design as per the paving requirements and also ensures that it delivers superior math quality while making turns. The Cat Compaction Control is a device that updates the operator for higher efficiency and performance. It is very important for the operator to understand when the optimal temperature has been attained. The infrared temperature sensors are just meant for that purpose. It will inform the operator about the existence of the optimal temperature and at the same time when compaction has taken place. The temperature mapping helps to record vital data for future scrutiny and the Pass-Count Mapping simply informs the operator of mat coverage and the number of passes made.
Moving to the specification of the machine, the total operating weight of the split and solid drum on a standard machine is 10670kg and 9710 kg respectively. While the weight of the drum increases slightly on a maximum machine with the split drum weighing 12070kg and the solid drum weighing 10510 kg. The weight of the drums changes with ROPS/FOPS or with a canopy. The capacity of the fuel tank is 208 liters while the capacity of the cooling system, engine oil, hydraulic tank and water tank is 22L, 9L, 36L and 837L respectively. It has been installed with one of the best engines which is a CAT C4.4 with ACERT technology. The total number of cylinders it has is 4 with a rated speed of 2200 rpm.
