Skid Steer Vibratory Roller
Building strong load bearing surfaces is an important job. Often, a skid steer vibratory roller attachment is the right tool for the job.
We offer vibratory rollers from Blue Diamond attachments. Have a look at them below. Keep reading to learn more about vibratory rollers.
Why use a skid steer vibratory roller attachment?
Vibratory rollers are used to increase the density of soil and other materials in roadwork. The increased density in turn increases the load bearing capacity of the surface.
From personal experience, we have used vibratory rollers to compact gravel taxiways at rural airports in the past.
This is of particular importance anywhere a heavy propeller driven airplane may stop briefly, such as in front of fuel pumps.
Any sort of soft ground or sinking in done by the airplane while it’s stopped means that it needs more power to begin moving again. More power by a propeller driven airplane often means more rocks and stones thrown and sucked up by the propeller.
How does a skid steer vibratory roller work?
As with most other skid steer attachments, it attaches to your skid steer universal quick attach and uses power from your auxiliary hydraulic system.
The hydraulic system often requires between 10-50 gallons per minute as well as 1,500 - 3,000 PSI.
The vibratory roller provides downward force with the overall weight of the drum which is often 2,000 to 2,500 pounds.
Smooth drums are available for granular soils while you can purchase an option padded roller (AKA sheeps foot roller) for cohesive soils such as clay.
