Pneumatic Tire Compactor: Knead for uniformity

The PT240R rubber-wheeled compactor was developed in line with the latest expertise in the compaction of bituminous asphalt courses and natural soils. The strong kneading effect is a unique capability of the rubber-wheeled compactor. The large wheel load and elasticity of the rubber tires produce a constant insulating and sealing effect.
