Bobcat Vibratory Roller, Padded Drum - 48"

Double tap to zoom



Top Tasks

  • Paving, patching, trenching and flatwork


Choosing the Right Drum

  • Sand, pea rock, gravel, and asphalt patching: Choose a smooth drum.
  • Heavy soils, clay, and clay-based backfill compaction: Choose a padded drum.


How It Works

The vibrating action of the roller allows the base material to realign and compact from the bottom up. A hydraulic motor drives a centrifugal weight on the drum shaft that provides the compacting action.


  • Bi-Directional Operation: Dual-direction vibration motor permits compaction while traveling in either direction.
  • Drum Oscillation: Free drum oscillation keeps more of the drum in contact with the surface on uneven terrain.
  • Isolation Mounting System: Reduces vibration transferred to theoperator, meaning less operator fatigue and more comfortable working conditions. Also, affords more consistent pressure to the ground, delivering constant compacting results.
  • Offset Drum Design: Allows the right side of roller to extend past the machine for compacting next to sidewalks, walls, or curbs.
  • Oil-Bath Bearings: Designed to avoid costly downtime, the oil-bath bearings eliminate the need for daily greasing.
  • Protected Hose Routing: Maximizes uptime and keeps couplers clean.
  • Scrapers: Keep the drum clean for better ground contact and compaction.
  • Versatility: Depending the jobsite, choose between a smooth or padded drum. Or have both with a smooth outer shell accessory that bolts right over the padded drum.
  • Bob-Tach™ Mounting System: Turns any loader into a multi-job machine with a tight-fit attachment hook-up. Fast and easy attachment changes means spending less time on maintenance and more time on the job.
