The introduction of ride-on rollers offers a larger-scale compliment to the popular line of Chicago Pneumatic light compaction equipment.

- AR90G: Small Articulated Tandem Asphalt Roller (Gasoline)
- AR100: Small Articulated Tandem Asphalt Roller (Diesel)
- AR120: Compact Articulated Tandem Asphalt Roller
- SR130D: Small Vibratory Soil Roller
- SR130PD: Small Vibratory Soil Roller
About the AR90G and AR100
Utilized primarily for small-scale compaction work like patching, bicycle paths, small parking lots, and driveways, these articulated tandem asphalt rollers are designed for easy transport and operator usability. The AR90G is a gasoline version and features vibration on the front drum, with drive on both the front and rear drums. The diesel-driven AR100 comes with vibration and drive standard on both front and rear drums.
About the AR120
Designed for quiet operation in sensitive environments, the AR120 is most utilized on roadways in urban areas where a compact size and noise-reduction technology is most important. Equipped with a Kubota® water-cooled diesel engine, the AR120 is powerful enough for medium-duty to heavy-duty applications, yet versatile and compact enough to be used on lighter-duty applications as well.
About the SR130D / SR130PD
Designed for compaction of pipe trenches and on-road shoulder work in mind, the strong welded frame and thick drum shell boost the longevity and reliability of the machine. The compact and maneuverable framework of the SR130 models allow for stability even on steep slopes. The PD version is equipped with pads and a drum drive, making it suitable for the compaction of silt and clay soils.
About the line
The entire line of newly released rollers to the North American marketplace are engineered with operator comfort in mind, featuring spacious platforms, and ergonomically positioned steps. Shock mounts and a sliding operator seat also comes standard on the roller models. The sleek, legible instrument panel includes a warning panel and a fuel gauge to reduce incidents on the jobsite.
