Chicago Pneumatic has expanded its range of walk-behind double drum rollers by launching the MR7005. The new roller includes automatic hydraulic brakes for enhanced operator safety and a built-in hydraulic oil cooler to control the unit’s temperature and increase durability.
“We have designed our new double drum walk-behind roller to address customers’ demands for more safe, robust and reliable construction equipment that can operate seamlessly in tough and hot working environments,” commented Andrzej Mrozinski, spokesperson for light compaction equipment at Chicago Pneumatic. “The MR7005 is powerful yet simple to handle, with its built-in hydraulic oil cooler reducing wear on vital components.”
The MR7005 has automatic hydraulic brakes that respond when the pressure drops. If the pressure goes up, the brakes are automatically released. The roller also comes equipped with a vibration-reducing handle so that operators are not exposed to high hand/arm (H/A) vibration levels.
The new walk-behind double drum roller is suitable for compacting thin layers on granular soils and asphalt. It will be available through Chicago Pneumatic’s worldwide distributor network, which offers sales, aftermarket parts and maintenance services locally.
