Road Widener Brings Heightened Safety to Road Crews
Road Widener LLC. offers the industry’s first Offset Vibratory Roller attachment. The attachment’s offset, patented design allows the host machine to drive safely on flat ground while compacting sloping shoulders, ditches and other hard-to-reach areas alongside the road, a task that has traditionally put road crews in danger of rollover accidents and led to poor safety ratings.
The Offset Vibratory Roller attaches to most loaders, graders, compact track loaders and skid steers, operating off the host machine’s engine and hydraulics. Utilizing the host machine for power reduces maintenance by 90% over self-propelled rollers while also offering the versatility of 3 interchangeable drums sizes and up to 30° pivot angles.
The Offset Vibratory Roller compacts a variety of materials including stone, asphalt, gravel and topsoil. Once attached to a host machine’s lift arm, the Offset Vibratory Roller becomes operable by easily connecting to the host machine’s hydraulics and pairing the remote control. From there, all aspects of the attachment, including height, angle, extension and compaction adjustments, can be operated by a single crewmember via the remote control.
The Offset Vibratory Roller has a total reach of 2.74 m and can be purchased with a 60, 90 or 120 cm-wide drum. The drums can pivot up to 30°, reach up to 76 cm below the mounting point, and are interchangeable. This allows road crews to take on jobs of varying sizes and aggregates by purchasing additional drums instead of investing in multiple self-propelled machines with engines that can fail. Additionally, the vibratory feature operates between 2,500-3,500 vibrations per minute for optimal compaction.
