Construction can be exciting, especially when you get to know the machines used in building things. Today, we'll talk about four types of rollers used in construction: Walk Behind, Double Drum, Single Drum, and Tandem Rollers. We'll keep it super simple, so you can easily understand these rollers and what they do.
Think of Walk Behind Rollers like pushing a cart at the store. These rollers are small and easy to move around. People use them for small jobs like fixing a driveway. You just walk behind them, and they make the ground flat.
Double Drum Rollers have two big wheels close together. They're like having two big tires side by side. These rollers are used for bigger jobs, like making roads. They roll over the ground, making it smooth.
Single Drum Rollers have one giant wheel. They're like the big brother of Double Drum Rollers. These rollers are great for really tough jobs. They press down hard to make the ground super strong.
Tandem Rollers are like a team. They have two rollers, one in the front and one in the back. They work together to make the ground smooth and solid. You'll see them on big roads and highways.
