The 84 inch padfoot single drum ride-on roller is used for foundational construction, like road paving. The machine’s padfoot drum, or tamper foot, has tapered pads that penetrate the soil, compacting it and making it stronger. Because the padfoot ride-on roller is used to create earthen foundations for roads, it’s ideal for many types of soils, like loam or silt. Built with a narrow frame, the ride-on roller is easy to steer and gives the operator plenty of clearance. This roller is required to build safe and navigable roads.
