The HD90 articulated tandem rollers have a drum width of 168cm; previously the biggest rollers in GAP’s fleet were 138cm wide.
The new compactors have been delivered to GAP’s depots in Aberdeen and Inverness in response to customer request.
Hamm is GAP’s sole supplier for tandem rollers.
Head of procurement Ken Stewart said: “The addition of these large rollers to our fleet strengthens our relationship with Hamm offers our valued customers a wider choice for their sites. We were impressed with the flexibility demonstrated by Hamm in providing us with specialist equipment at relatively short notice. For larger rollers we would always source via our re-hire partners but after careful consideration, we decided to switch to outright purchase. Where possible we try and purchase new equipment if there is a customer specific requirement and if the numbers stack up commercially. We are enjoying increased demand for our larger plant in this area and we are excited at the new opportunities that these rollers will undoubtedly bring.”
