Bobcat's new vibratory rollers range comes in five sizes, with widths from 122 cm to 203 cm.

Bobcat has launched a new range of vibratory rollers for use on its skid-steer loaders, compact tracked loaders, all-wheel steer loaders and telehandlers.

The range comes in five sizes with widths from 122 to 203 cm. The 122 cm and 185 cm models replace the existing 122 cm and 183 cm models and are both available in padded and smooth drum versions. A smooth shell kit is available for the padded versions of the 122 and 175 cm models, "giving users the option of effectively having two attachments in one", said Bobcat.

The largest 203 cm model is available only as a smooth drum unit and is a new addition to the range to match the larger carriers now offered by Bobcat.

"Among the advantages offered by the new rollers are an increased dynamic force - now the highest in the industry - providing quicker compaction rates", said Bobcat, "The isolators on the new vibratory rollers have been enhanced to provide consistent forces regardless of the carrier."

Bobcat said an important feature of the rollers is the low level of vibration transmitted to the operator, which the company said "is the lowest available, when measured against any other rollers of this type on the market."

The new rollers are also easier to maintain than their predecessors; "Bearings now operate in an oil bath and no longer require daily greasing."
