Road Widener LLC., a manufacturer of road construction equipment, announced a spray bar system that increases the adaptability of its Offset Vibratory Roller attachment. This accessory fits on all Offset Vibratory Roller attachments and helps suppress dust particles, compact aggregates and prevent clumping when rolling hot-mix asphalt. It can be attached to the Offset Vibratory Roller, a compaction attachment that allows the host machine to drive safely on flat ground while compacting shoulders, ditches, trenches and other hard-to-reach areas alongside the road.
The Offset Vibratory Roller offers contractors safety when compared to self-propelled compaction machines that have a risk of tipping. The attachment’s offset allows the host machine to drive safely on flat ground while compacting areas alongside the road. These are tasks that have traditionally included the danger of rollover accidents, increased workers’ comp costs and led to poor safety ratings.
The spray bar system includes two seven-gallon tanks for each side of the roller and can pair with any water tank that may already be on the host machine. These features all complement the Offset Vibratory Roller that has a total reach of nine feet and can be purchased with a 2-, 3- or 4-foot-wide drum.
