CASE PT240 Pneumatic Tire Roller Helps Fowler Simplify Roller Fleet

Fowler Construction recently added two PT240 pneumatic tire rollers to its asphalt paving fleet. The PT240 allowed two primary advantages for one of Ontario’s busiest asphalt paving companies: The machine allowed for a customized tire heating system to improve operation in the cooler conditions found in Canada; and the ability to ballast the roller with an additional 24,000 kg in weight helps the company achieve final compaction with the PT240 and only one other steel drum roller in many applications. 

“When we looked at the CASE PT240s, I liked the way they were built, the cabs, the wheel configurations, so we took two of them on,” says Genders. “I adapted skirting around the tires to hold the heat in because up here it’s cool and we lose heat off our tires and we’ll pick asphalt up, so we designed the skirting system and then we put infrared heaters at the back lower sides of the tires. There are two heaters at each end of the tub. The heat rises up through the tires, it warms them. It works very well because I can warm them in the morning and once I get on the road and I’m rolling asphalt, I can shut them off.”

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.
