Machine Description and Intended Use
This machine is a dual drum, ride-on roller. The Wacker Neuson RideOn Roller consists of an articulated frame onto which is mounted a gasoline or diesel engine, a fuel tank, a hydraulic tank, a water tank, a hydrostatic drive system, two steel drums containing internal eccentric weights, and an operator’s platform with a ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structure). The engine powers the hydraulic systems that provide machine movement and drum vibration. The vibrating drums smooth and compact the work surface as the machine moves. Machine speed, direction, and vibration are controlled by the operator from the operator’s seat on the platform.

The machine is designed as a lightweight roller to be used in the compaction of sublayers and finish layers of asphalt on roads, driveways, parking lots, and other types of asphalt-covered surfaces.

This machine has been designed and built strictly for the intended use described above. Using the machine for any other purpose could permanently damage the machine or seriously injure the operator or other persons in the area. Machine damage caused by misuse is not covered under warranty.

The following are some examples of misuse:

  • Using the machine as a ladder, support, or work surface
  • Using the machine to carry or transport passengers or equipment
  • Using the machine to tow other machines
  • Using the machine to spray liquids other than water (i.e., diesel fuel on asphalt)
  • Operating the machine outside of factory specifications.
  • Operating the machine in a manner inconsistent with all warnings found on the machine and in the Operator’s Manual.

This machine has been designed and built in accordance with the latest global safety standards. It has been carefully engineered to eliminate hazards as far as practicable and to increase operator safety through protective guards and labeling. However, some risks may remain even after protective measures have been taken. They are called residual risks. On this machine, they may include exposure to:

  • Heat, noise, exhaust, and carbon monoxide from the engine
  • Burns from hot hydraulic fluid
  • Fire hazards from improper refueling techniques
  • Fuel and its fumes
  • Personal injury from improper lifting techniques
