What is the Vibromax VMT 160 tandem rollers?

If you need to finish rolling asphalt materials or are doing repair works and need a vibrating roller then these Vibromax tandem rollers are the perfect machine for the job.  Not only is it comfortable and user friendly but it has bigger diesel and water tanks than your average rollers of the same class, this is to allow for working at capacity for much longer. Which means you get about 7 hours more, compared to other machines.

The JCB Vibromax VMT range is renowned for its excellent combination of static weight, generosity, tight turning circle and fast rolling speed. The Vibromax possesses these same qualities as well as adding greater power and performance.

This JCB Vibromax VMT 160 is ideal for rolling sub-base, finishing asphalt materials plus patch and repair works. These heavy-duty machines can be used on access roads, yards, residential streets, car parks, motorways and airports. This machine is well suited for granular and asphalt material on a wide range of applications, especially where space is tight. It provides excellent compaction.

If you are unsure about what is the best machine for your project, then give us a ring orpop into the officeto discuss.
