Chicago Pneumatic has expanded their range of light compaction equipment with the introduction of a line of compact tandem asphalt rollers and soil compactors.
The new models, available in North America, are the gasoline-powered AR90G small articulated tandem asphalt roller, the diesel-powered AR100 small articulated tandem asphalt roller, the ART120 compact articulated tandem asphalt roller, the SR130 small vibratory soil roller and the SR130PD small vibratory soil roller.
Each of the models feature spacious platforms and ergonomically positioned steps. Shock mounts and a sliding operator seat are standard on the roller models. The units feature a sleek, legible instrument panel with a warning panel and fuel gauge.
The AR90G and AR100 are designed for small scale compaction work such as small parking lots, and feature easy transport and operator usability. The AR90G is a gasoline unit and features vibration on the front drum, with drive on both the front and rear drums. The AR100, a diesel version, has vibration and drive standard on both front and rear drums.
The AR120, with a compact size and noise reduction technology, is useful for roadways in urban areas. Powerful enough for medium- and heavy-duty applications, the AR120 is compact enough for light jobs.
The SR130 and SR130PD are designed for pipe trench compaction and on-road shoulder work, and feature a strong welded frame and thick drum shell. A compact, maneuverable frame ensures usefulness even on steep slopes. The PD version has pads and a drum drive to aid in compaction of silt and clay soils.
