Types of Rollers for Hire

At iseekplant, you’ll find many 3 point rollers, pad foot rollers, multi tyred rollers and smooth drum rollers for hire throughout the country. Below is a quick description of the roller, and a table discussing the ideal applications of each type of roller.

Smooth Drum Roller

A smooth drum roller is a heavy-duty piece of construction equipment with a smooth cylindrical drum used for compacting and leveling surfaces. It's the most common roller, and can be used to smooth out and compact a variety of aggregates.

Multi-Tyred Roller

Also called a ‘Pneumatic Roller’ - a multi-tyred roller is a heavy construction machine equipped with multiple tires designed to compact and level surfaces effectively. It's usually a finishing roller, designed to compact and finish asphalt.

Padfoot Roller

A padfoot roller, also called a sheepsfoot roller, is used for compacting clay or other wet aggregates, by using a drum with protruding pads. It works best on relatively loosely packed aggregates in the formative stages of the compaction process.

3 Point Roller

A 3-point roller is a compact and efficient machine with three points of contact on the ground, typically used for compacting soil or asphalt in smaller construction projects or tight spaces.

Marco Roller

The marco roller is a specialised construction equipment designed for efficient and precise compaction of large areas, featuring a wide drum and high compaction force. You can often see marco rollers being used in the construction of airplane landing strips.

Roller TypeSize Ranges (Operating Weight)Compaction AggregatesTypes of JobsCommon Attachments
Smooth Drum Roller1.5 - 13 tonnesSoil, gravel, asphaltRoad construction, site prep, asphalt compactionPadfoot shell kit, vibratory system

3 Point Roller3 - 12 tonnesAll soil types, sub-base materialsSite prep, road sub-base compactionVibratory system
Marco Roller3 - 20 tonnesGravel, asphalt, soilRoad construction, site prep, asphalt compactionVibratory system, scraper bar

Common Roller Attachments

Our suppliers who specialise in compaction usually have a plethora of special attachments and vibration equipment that can be hired alongside the roller to increase its efficacy.

Double Drum

At iseekplant, we don't consider double drum rollers a different type of roller - we consider it an attachment to either a smooth drum roller, or a padfoot. You can therefore find double drum rollers by selecting the attachments in the refinement panel on the left hand side of the directory.

A double drum roller, with two steel cylinder rollers positioned in the front and back, offers increased power and efficiency for preparing and refining surfaces, making it ideal for heavy-duty asphalt applications.


A roller can be made to be articulated by incorporating an articulation joint, which enables the drum or tires to pivot independently, allowing for better maneuverability and improved weight distribution over uneven terrain.

Vibration System

A vibration system attachment on a roller is a mechanical feature that generates controlled vibrations to enhance the compaction process by increasing soil or asphalt density.
