At Kelsey plant Hire we have 3 different types of roller in stock for hire.

The pedestrian roller, a single drum walk behind roller that is perfect for those smaller jobs such as driveways or park areas. When hiring one of these you will most probably need to hire a trailer as well, which is something we can help you with.

The next size up is the 80 roller, which is a tandem ride-on roller designed for those mid-sized jobs such as car parks, roads, sports grounds, tennis courts or perhaps landscaping.

When you hire one of these 80 rollers you will probably also need a vibrating plate, commonly known as a wacker plate or compactor plate. This is used to compact hardcore, sand and gravel or to bed-in paving. You will large medium-duty vibrating plates like the ones we stock – very easy to use! Or perhaps, you may need a trench rammer, also known as jumping jack or tamping rammer. These are used for compacting sand, gravel and hardcore in trenches or other confined spaces. So it will probably be one or the other…

Our largest roller is the 120 roller for hire, another tandem ride-on roller and will be needed for all the larger projects – you can check with us if you are unsure. For use with these rollers will be either the standard size vibrating plates or perhaps you will need the larger forward/reverse vibrating plates.

Please call us on 01403 249 125 if you are interested in hiring a roller for any work you may be doing.

Kelsey Plant Hire have taken delivery of yet another 8 tonne digger. The last few months have been very busy and there has been great demand for machines of this size. The decision was made to invest in a Takeuchi TB285. This rubber tracked excavator has a maximum digging depth of 4570mm (15ft) making it very versatile. It is also compact featuring a shorter than average tail swing compared to standard 8.5-tonne diggers minimising potential damage when excavating in restricted areas. More importantly, our customers have told us that they like operating the Takeuchi !!
