Carson, CA, (August 28, 2015) – Multiquip Inc., a diverse manufacturer and supplier of world class quality products and solutions introduces a new asphalt patching roller.

The Multiquip V305EH single-drum, walk-behind roller allows asphalt patching crews to maximize productivity and move efficiently between jobs.  Adjustable transport hooks are standard allowing the roller to be transported on the gate of a dump truck, and quickly unloaded for patchwork. Simply patch and go!

Operators will appreciate the new elongated handle and smaller drum which provide better steering leverage.  The multi-function handle is built for convenience with controls for forward and reverse, vibration, emergency stop and water flow located within easy reach.  The water release control has three flow adjustment settings to allow the operator to regulate water distribution to the drum.  A patent pending, 7-gallon, plastic water tank eliminates water flow obstructions from rust and features a tethered cap. 

Service technicians and fleets will benefit from a maintenance free vibratory assembly that requires no greasing.  An hour/tachometer simplifies service and tracks maintenance intervals.  A visible water filter makes it easy to gauge a contaminated water supply.  Convenient access to internal components is possible with a swing away hood that requires no tools. 

The V305EH has a reliable Honda GX340 engine with a 1.6 gallon fuel tank.  The roller produces 3,800 lbs. of centrifugal force for superior compaction performance across the 29” drum.  The New product will debut at the 2015 APWA’s International Public Works Congress & Exposition in Phoenix, AZ from August 30 to September 2.
