Compaction Technology – Specifying the Right Roller for the Job

There are many variables that determine the right roller for each compaction job. The first is whether you’re compacting soil or asphalt. Other factors are the width of the area to be compacted, the final density required, the grade of the area to be compacted, the type of asphalt mix, soil type, as well the type of materials that lay below the lift being compacted. There are also considerations related to weight, frequency, amplitude and centrifugal force that will have an effect on final density.

Intelligent compaction technologies—ranging from simple meters to automated systems that adjust machine performance for the operator—help simplify operation and allow contractors to improve productivity and eliminate costly rework by getting the job done right the first time.

Dire States – Driving Douglas County

Douglas County is one of Wisconsin’s most scenic places – and yet, with 46 percent of county highways at a PASER rating of four or less, much of its infrastructure is crumbling. This not only challenges the local highway department charged with road maintenance, but it has a significant impact on the logging industry and local residents – so much so that it’s changing how the logging industry works while costing local residents more to maintain their vehicles.
