How to operate the walk-behind road roller correctly?

Publication Date: Mar 08, 2023


The walk-behind road roller is a common construction equipment. It is small in size, so it is generally not used to compact a large area of ground, but is used in some small areas or large road rollers. unreal place. Although this kind of road roller is small in size, its compaction effect is not bad at all. Next, I will focus on the relevant content that you should know about the correct operation of the walk-behind road roller.

1. Features of walk-behind road rollers

1. Small size, compact structure, easy to transport, heavy workload and high efficiency. It can also be used in conjunction with large road rollers. The extra-large water tank reduces the trouble of refilling water back and forth, which increases the continuous working time of the equipment. The adjustable and foldable operating handle brings a comfortable operating environment to the operator, and it is convenient for transportation or storage after being folded.

2. There is a self-compressing polyurethane self-cleaning scraper on the steel wheel to prevent mud and asphalt from accumulating on the steel wheel and make the compaction smoother.

3. Higher curb clearance and smaller side clearance. Especially suitable for compacting against walls and road rocks.

2. Matters needing attention when using walk-behind road rollers

1. When performing high-speed rolling operations, it is forbidden to start the vibration device.

2. For beginners in the operation of walking rollers, if the reversing clutch or the vibration clutch is found to be slipping, stop the machine immediately and disengage the main clutch; the reversing clutch or the vibration clutch must be inspected, adjusted and troubleshooted. Don't increase the accelerator and try to drive with high speed and high power, otherwise the clutch plate will be burned.

3. When changing the driving direction of the hand-held small road roller, the reversing handle must be pulled from the forward (reverse) position to the neutral position, and then the handle should be pulled to the backward (forward) position after the road roller stops. Do not pull it in place at one time, so as not to damage the machine parts due to a sudden change of driving direction.

4. When compacting loose materials, vibratory rolling should be carried out after 1~2 times of static pressure.

5. When multiple road rollers work together, the distance between them should be greater than 2.5m to avoid collisions or steering difficulties.

6. Avoid long-distance driving; when a long-distance transition is required, other vehicles should be used to carry it.

7. It is strictly forbidden to vibrate on a hard road surface, so as not to damage the vibration damping device or other parts.
