A road roller, or ride-on roller, is a type of heavy construction equipment that is used for the compaction of soil and asphalt. These rollers are typically large and heavy and are mounted on a platform that the operator can ride on and operate from a seat. This allows the operator to compact the material more effectively than walk-behind models. The benefits of using a road roller include improved compaction, reduced labor costs and increased productivity compared to smaller compaction machines. United Rentals has a wide variety of road rollers for sale, so you can find the perfect one for your project.
FAQs About Ride-on Rollers for Sale
What is roller compaction?
Roller compaction is the process of compacting soil or aggregate with a road roller. This is done to reduce the space between the particles, which increases the density and strength of the material. Roller-compacted roadways are less prone to rutting and potholes, and they last longer than roadways that have not been compacted.
What are the uses of roller-compacted concrete?
Roller-compacted concrete (RCC) is a type of concrete that is made by compacting and vibrating a mix of cement, sand, gravel and water. This type of concrete is used for roadways, bridges, parking lots and other large-scale construction projects. RCC is more durable than traditional concrete, and it can be used in place of asphalt in some applications.
What are the different types of road rollers?
There are three main types of road rollers: tandem, single-drum and pneumatic. Tandem road rollers have two drums that rotate in opposite directions, while single-drum road rollers have one drum that rotates. The type of drum can vary as well. Some rollers have smooth drums for compacting and smoothing soils. Others have padfoot drums that have blunted "teeth" for compacting softer soils. Each type of road roller has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to select the right one for the material you're compacting and the size of the job.
