Equipment Type

 Tandem Vibratory Rollers

Tandem vibratory rollers compact freshly placed asphalt mats to specific densities using two, smooth steel drums that vibrate to consolidate the material. Many have sophisticated systems that continually measure density as compaction progresses and adjust compaction effort to avoid over-compaction. Using GPS and proprietary software, some rollers can capture a digital record of compaction results.


Six rollers comprise the Series 9 lineup: four single-drum models and two tandem-drum models.

The 2.5-ton RD 27 ride-on roller has a patented multifunctional lever that contains buttons for directional control, all vibration options, and water on/off.

The BW190ADO-5 tandem vibratory roller offers conventional front-drum vibration and the company’s TanGO tangential-oscillation system for the rear-drum

The Hamm oscillation-compaction system is now available on certain models in the Hamm compact line.

Wacker Neuson’s new RD 27-100 and RD 27-120 double-drum ride-on rollers have respective operating weights of 5,470 and 5,950 pounds

One of the key costs that manufacturers have identified is fuel, which accounts for nearly half of the operating cost of a piece of equipment.
