Single drum ride-on rollers are compaction tools used for compacting surfaces made of gravel, loam, clay, silt, soil, or asphalt. There are two types of single drum rollers to be aware of: smooth drum rollers and padfoot drum rollers.
Smooth drum rollers work best for road work projects, such as preparing road foundations and flattening asphalt. Padfoot drum rollers are better for projects where the soil needs to be compacted at greater depths, like filling and compacting trenches. Single drum rollers are equipped with pneumatic tires in the back, which are designed to tread rough terrain. These air-filled tires also provide excellent traction, which is an advantage over double drum rollers.
Single drum rollers can flatten surfaces on steep grades without losing traction, and are much faster than double drum rollers. For this reason, they can cover much more surface area. Single drum rollers are ideal for residential use, such as flattening driveways or other DIY projects.
