Chicago Pneumatic Launches AR95 Diesel Ride-On Roller
Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment now features a brand-new tandem asphalt roller with the AR95. The new diesel roller joins the complete line of CP compact tandem asphalt rollers and soil compactors. The ride-on rollers offer a larger-scale complement to the popular line of CP light compaction equipment. The diesel roller is designed for easy transport and operator usability
The AR95 is utilized primarily for small-scale compaction work like patching, bicycle paths, small parking lots, and driveways. The roller is also available in a gasoline version with the AR90G. Both feature vibration on the front drum, with drive on both the front and rear drums.
“Our new roller is another example of how CP listens to their customers,” said Tim Hoffman, product manager for rollers at Chicago Pneumatic. “This is our economy diesel with the same standard equipment as the AR90G with the added benefit of three LED work lights.”
The AR95 drum width measures 36 inches and weighs 2,976 pounds. There are many benefits to the AR95. This includes easy transport with folding ROPS and towing eyelets at the front and rear. The roller has a straightforward instrument panel that includes an hour meter, switch horn, warning lights for brakes, hydraulic oil temperature and water sprinkler control. It also features three additional LED work lights that were not included on the AR90G model.
Operator-friendly features include a spacious operator platform and an ergonomically positioned step. In addition, the rear drum is equipped with shock mounts that minimize operator platform vibration as well as a sliding operator seat. The diesel roller is also powerful with excellent accessibility, gradeability and a high clearance to allow compaction close to high curbs and other obstacles on both sides of the machine.
