Rollers and Compactors for hire
A compactor roller is a piece of heavy machinery used to compact fine particulate material or asphalt to create a flat surface or to rid the material of void pockets.
The single drum compactor roller is useful if the machine will be used to help grade uneven surfaces of soil or dirt. The rubber wheels or tracks will help the machine keep traction and overcome some obstacles. However the single steel drum is quite heavy and may be prevented from rolling over obstacles anyway. Generally, a full-size grader machine is needed before compacting to stop it getting stuck in the soil. The compactor roller can then flatten the soil or particulate matter using static force created by the weight and motion of the roller.
