Mini road roller
Most construction sites need stable ground to do their work on. The soil needs to be compressed, so there aren’t any pockets of air underground that can disrupt the process. For this to work, special construction equipment is needed to properly compact and smooth the ground.
The Compaction road roller is mainly used for compacting various construction materials such as non-cohesive soil, stone, sandy soil, and macadam aggregate mixtures. Especially suitable for community roads, asphalt roads, village highways, underground garages, playgrounds, concrete roads, sports venues built, project buildings, and all kinds of groove earthwork backfill.
The main purpose of using a compaction road roller is to create a more solid and stable foundation for projects. If the particles of soil or asphalt are pushed together to pack them tight to each other, it reduces the chance of shifting, crumbling or sinking. For foundations, it has a huge implication on the stability of a building. In road construction, it makes the difference between the quality of roads, how they last through different seasons and the long-term fixes that will be needed.

How to Choose the Right Type of Road Roller
Choosing the right type of road roller for your construction project is important, as the wrong one can result in poor workmanship, pockets of air that’ll sink the structure or uneven spaces that can be dangerous.
Figuring out the right type of roller depends on a few factors. The first of which would be the length of the project. Depending on the length, sometimes it’ll be more cost-efficient to rent a roller than outright buying one.
You’re also going to have to figure out the type of soil that’s going to be compacted. Fine-grain sand will need a different roller than clay. Plus, if you’re laying asphalt, you’re going to have to figure out if it’ll be better to have a static or a vibratory roller.
Figuring out whether you need a smooth vs padfoot roller for your project might seem difficult at a glance, but learning about the two rollers (and others) can definitely help you pick the right type of roller for your construction project.
How to operate a Vibratory Roller
Vibratory rollers are ideal for compacting granular soils like sand. They can also be used to compact paving materials. These granular soils are difficult to compact otherwise with simple rollers. Therefore, a vibratory roller produces the vibrations allowing the granular particles to rearrange in a compact removing any air voids.
Step 1:Wear all the gear
Before operating the vibratory roller, you should wear all the protective gear. It would include a special suit which protects you from extreme heat or cold. There would be special boots that can resist impact from hard objects. Additionally, you would have a safety helmet and goggles, that you should be wearing the time.
Step 2:Inspection of machine
Before you start inspect your machine properly for any issues. Check for any cracks, corrosion, and oil leaks. Check the gauges, whether they are working properly or not. Check if everything is properly operational or not. If you find any issues you should report them to your supervisor and go for the maintenance and repairs.
Step 3:Turning on the ignition
Turn on the road roller by using a key. At this stage, do not disengage the lock yet as you still need to take some precautions. As in the previous step, you must inspect if parts of your road roller are functioning properly.
Step 4:Read the notes and specifications
Read the notes and specifications prepared by the civil engineer before you start rolling over your material. You should be aware of the limitations of the machine. It will help you determine how many passes you need to do on the material you’re compacting.
Step 5:Select the frequency of vibration
Select the frequency of vibration depending on the type of material and the machine you are using. All the settings of the roller can be altered using the control panel located in the driver’s cabin. There would be different levers installed in the control panel which would serve different purposes.
Step 6:Controlling your gear and steering
Your operating lever is equipped with a handle. It can move in different directions similar to your car gear. It can easily be operated by simply choosing the forward and reverse switch. These switches are integrated into the handle. The more is the deflection of the lever in the forward direction, the more will be the speed. Moving the lever in a backward direction initiates the reverse motion. There is also a steering wheel installed there, which is used to maneuver the roller.
Get the Operation manual
One of the most common types of compaction equipment is the road roller.Vibratory rollers are almost identical to smooth wheel rollers (including the single and double drum) except for one major difference: they come with a specialized vibrating component. As the roller compacts and flattens the surface, it will vibrate. Since soil, asphalt, and concrete have natural empty spaces, So please contact us to win the operation manual.
How to maintain a Vibratory Roller
Perform Daily Maintenance
Completing a brief walk-around of the machine can be an easy way to see if something is off before you even leave the shop in the morning. Look for loose wiring and hoses, check for leaks (a sign a hose may be loose), and check the electrical controls. If a switch isn’t working, make sure one of the wires isn’t loose. Make sure backup alarms, warning beacons, and headlights are operating properly and check the center joint and test the parking brake.
Keep the Drum Clean & Lubricated
During your visual inspection each morning, make sure there are no dings in the drum surface and that the drum is clean.The drums are the core of the roller,Whether it’s a vibratory or oscillatory system, you want to check the oil levels on a weekly basis to make sure they’re not getting low. Low oil levels will cause your bearings to go out which will create a lot more down time than just checking the oil since it takes so much time to remove the drum and replace the bearings
Check All Fluid Levels
Completing a brief walk-around of the machine can be an easy way to see if something is off before you even leave the shop in the morning. Look for loose wiring and hoses, check for leaks (a sign a hose may be loose), and check the electrical controls. If a switch isn’t working, make sure one of the wires isn’t loose. Make sure backup alarms, warning beacons and headlights are operating properly and check the center joint and test the parking brake.
Inspect the Water System
You want to make sure everything that has to do with the water system is maintained frequently,If the water system is not working properly, asphalt will start sticking to the drums
If at all possible, try to always fill the tank with clean water. Water goes from the tank to the sprinkler bars and sprays out over the front and rear drum.
It serves as a lubricant to prevent asphalt from sticking to the drum so it’s important that the water you put in it is clean and won’t clog the system.
You also have to check the tank regularly for algae, calcium deposits, or other contaminants.
Check Air Filters&hydrualic system
Making sure the air filter isn’t clogged can help ensure that the engine won’t run too hot. If the air filter is dirty, you should replace it rather than try to clean it out with compressed air Sometimes you can do more harm than good by trying to clean it. Checking your hydraulic oil level inside the engine compartment that hydraulic oil needs to be changed, but usually, you can go 1,000 to 2,000 hours before you need to change it. Always follow the operator’s manual specs. Between maintenance intervals, pay attention to the color of the oil and if it starts looking dark and dingy, it’s time to change it.
Add Fuel at the End of the Day
Here’s another one that’s easy to do and doesn’t take much effort, but has a big impact on the machine. By fueling the roller at night instead of in the morning,
you remove the air from the tank and reduce the likelihood of condensation in the tank, Moisture will add water to your fuel and cause problems.
Plus by filling the tank at the end of each day, you assure greater productivity right away the next morning.
