Tandem Compactor The tandem compactor is a self-propelled road roller equipped with two large cylinders that allow it to move and compact the soil. It is mainly involved in road construction work to compact asphalt.
A distinction is made between static compactors, sometimes equipped with a blade at the front, and vibrating compactors, which are the most widely used today. The frequency and amplitude of vibration are adjustable depending on the work planned. Some tandem compactors are articulated, which makes them more manoeuvrable: their front cylinder can swivel to the right or to the left, and their tight turning radius allows them to work in tight spaces.
Some tandem compactors have a ROPS (Roll-Over Protection Structure: protects the operator in the event of overturning) / FOPS (Falling Object Protection Structure: protects the operator in the event of falling objects) cab equipped, but with others only have a seat protected by a roll bar.
