Multiquips’s Roller makes light work of compaction

Multiquip’s new AR-13H tandem drum roller is a lightweight solution to heavyweight compaction challenges. The 3,088- pound ride-on roller is built for asphalt and sub-layer granular and mixed-soil compaction jobs, making it ideal for work on parking lots, driveways, and roads. The AR-13H boasts 3,100 pounds of centrifugal force with 4,000 vibrations per minute. It has a 35.7-inch drum width and travels up to 4.8 mph. For improved efficiency and reduced labor cost, the AR-13H sports a 11⁄4-inch clearance on the right side for close operation near walls and obstacles; a 19-inch curb clearance ensuring flush compaction to the curb; and unobstructed driver visibility. The AR-13H’s front drum vibration with static rear drum provides a smooth and even surface. For additional ballast, the rear drum can be filled with water.

The AR-13H is powered by an 18- horsepower Honda gasoline engine and has a maintenance-free vibratory assembly that reduces downtime. The roller also features a hydrostatic drive with infinitely variable speed control for simple forward and reverse maneuvering. This allows operators to stop and start the roller smoothly while promoting even operation and helping to eliminate asphalt marring.
