Tapered lugs, cleaner plates improve roller’s performance

The tapered-lug design of the new PRN Wacker heavy-duty rolling packer gives maximum compaction and smooth rolling action. The single-drum model has 5-inch-by-3-inch hardface contact surfaces on its 4-inch-high lugs. The 6-foot-long, 36-inch-diameter drum weighs 3,800 pounds empty and 6,200 pounds when filled with water for ballast and can be towed with 70 or more drawbar horsepower. A row of cleaner plates prevents soil buildup on the lugs.
