Glenn O. Hawbaker Inc.'s side-mounted vibratory shoulder roller (SVSR-1836) is designed to eliminate the dangers associated with rolling shoulders. The conventional method of compacting shoulders using a ride-on double-drum vibratory roller has caused serious accidents and death resulting from rollovers.
The SVSR-1836 is a side-mounted roller that can be quickly attached to most mid-size skid steers. The skid steer has a mounting plate on the front where the bucket (or any other attachment) would connect. Off the mounting plate is a steel bar that attaches near the center of the SVSR-1836. The second support location is near the center of the skid steer and extends to just above the rear 36-inch drum. The two support bars provide stability and alignment for the roller.
The roller has no engine, no drive system and no hydraulic system; the only system on the machine is the vibratory system in the rear drum. The skid steer unit provides the drive and hydraulic flow necessary to operate the rear drum vibratory system.
Only one operator (in the skid steer) is required to drive the SVSR-1836. The operator provides the appropriate alignment and activates the vibratory system on the roller when required.
In addition to improving the safety of shoulder rolling, the SVSR-1836 performs compaction of the shoulder in one pass. The 18-inch front drum pinches the edge and the 36-inch rear vibratory drum compacts the wedge. The roller is a PennDOT-approved device for its operation and the density it achieves on the shoulders.
The SVSR-1836 improves safety, quality, and production on shoulder back-up projects and has universal applications for contractors, state and municipal forces.
Applications for the SVSR-1836
- Use as designed to roll shoulders, banks and berms, compacting earth, aggregate milled and asphalt materials.
- Use in widening operation as a subgrade, stone base or asphalt placement compaction tool where walk-behind roller or vibratory plate is inefficient.
- Use as trench roller, to compact aggregate or asphalt in multiple lifts as required. SVSR is capable of fitting down into trench 36 inches or wider.
- Use as conventional 36- to 47-inch double-drum roller compacting earth, aggregate and asphalt materials for driveways, slabs, pads and walks.
Superior Ceramic Pulley Lagging
Superior Industries offers ceramic pulley lagging as a solution for producers who wish to boost productivity by eliminating costly belt slippage problems. Particularly suited to abrasive or highly wet or dry applications, Superior's ceramic lagging provides significantly greater traction than conventional lagging. Constructed from hundreds of individual ceramic tiles molded into a durable rubber backing, ceramic lagging cuts maintenance costs, reduces wear from abrasive materials, and extends the life of key conveyor components as it eliminates the need to over-tension the belt to attain greater traction. Superior also offers vulcanized rubber and Holz lagging options. For high traction, 60-durometer lagging is standard, with other lagging durometers available. Lagging can be attached to the pulley via vulcanizing or can be bolted or welded to the face of the pulley.
