INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (March 2014) - Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment was awarded the Better Roads 2013 Best New Products Top Rollouts for their AR90G Small Articulated Tandem Asphalt Roller. Better Roads receives hundreds of applications each year for the award and picks 25 products that stuck out the most to the editors of the magazine.
The candidates for the Top Rollouts award were judged on the following categories: industry significance, ingenuity, filling of a market need and/or an eye-catching product. The AR90G is part of a complete line of compact asphalt rollers and soil compactors entering the United States in 2013 and offers a larger-scale compliment to the popular line of Chicago Pneumatic light compaction line.
“We are very excited the AR90G asphalt roller received the award for one of the 2013 top rollouts,” said John Vogel, Executive Vice President of Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment. “It’s a product we are very proud of and thrilled that a publication like Better Roads thinks so highly of it, as well.”
The gasoline-powered AR90G features vibration on the front drum, with drive on both the front and rear drums. Utilized primarily for small-scale compaction work like patching, bicycle paths, small parking lots, and driveways, the articulated tandem asphalt rollers are designed for easy transport and operator usability.
The entire line of newly released rollers to the North American marketplace is engineered with operator comfort in mind, featuring spacious platforms, and ergonomically positioned steps. Shock mounts and a sliding operator seat also comes standard on the roller models. The sleek, legible instrument panel includes a warning panel and a fuel gauge to reduce incidents on the jobsite.
The AR90G will be at the Chicago Pneumatic booth at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 4-8.
