Safety alert on compact rollers

Highways England recently published a safety alert on the use of compact rollers on their Smart Motorway Programme after 3 incidents in April 2019 involving narrow twin drum rollers overturning. After a review into their selection and use of plant they are discouraging use of ride-on rollers less than 1.2m wide and instead consider using a remote controlled Wacker plate, remote controlled roller or a pedestrian operated roller.

Why not try a Wacker Neuson remote controlled trench roller from Huskisson? The RTx-SC3 Trench Roller is a tough, compact, highly maneuverable + cost effective piece of kit which eliminates the need for a driver making it ideal for safer site conditions. Call us now for a quote!
