Restraint bars for Bomag rollers
ARTICLE

DESCRIPTION

Hanson’s contracting division has recently taken delivery of the latest version of Bomag 161 large vibratory roller. Hanson recognised that the split door on the roller, which enables the driver to have the window wide open whilst the door is still closed, presented an opening large enough for the roller driver to fall out if suddenly jolted. Bars were fabricated and fitted to help contain the driver in the cab during use.

BENEFITS

  • Reduced risk of driver falling from height
  • Improved safety of roller operation
  • Expect bars to become standard on this roller model.
