In contrast to a towed vibratory roller, which has an engine towing it, a self-propelled roller has one single unit with an engine and the vibratory roller. It behaves as a single-vehicle.
In the case of towed vibratory roller vehicle is the engine while the roller was an attachment. The self-propelled roller is ideal for compacting ditches and foundation layers of the building, roads, and concrete slabs like a parking lot.
In contrast to the general type of vibratory rollers, these machines are also ideal for cohesive soils due to their kickstands together with the high centrifugal force adjustable.
The drums of the self-propelled roller are available in various widths.The selection of the width of the drums depends on the width of the strip being compacted. For wider strips like on highways, it’s economical to choose wider drums. While narrow drums are suitable for a narrow strip-like in walking pavements.
As the name suggests that these rollers are self-propelled, therefore they have a remote control, which works using infrared technology.
Some of the latest models have the excellent climbing ability via a self-locking differential. A 3-point swivel joint is provided for optimum driving comfort along with hydrostatic steering.
