These rollers both come fitted with water tanks and sprinkler bars so they can be used for rolling either tarmac or stone.

Both rollers can also be supplied with their own custom designed trailers ideal for use on multi-site projects.

The first is an electric start diesel powered roller commonly known as the "28inch Roller" named so because of the width of its drum.

This roller is ideal for compacting either tarmac or stone on areas such as footpaths & walkways it is also widely used in the repair and patching up of roadways and highways.
