The FH-R has enabled us to accomplish that.…
The OVR attaches to the skid steer already in our fleet allowing our crew to drive on the level road with the offset roller compacting on the shoulder. The risk of rollover and injury to my operator is eliminated and I’m seeing improvements in efficiency.
The FH-R material placement attachment cut a 4-step process down to just 2 steps. Rather than dumping material on the road and pushing it with equipment then having to clean up after, the FH-R makes it possible to put material directly where it needs to go in an efficient and accurate manner.
After demoing the FH-R material placement attachment for a day, we were impressed with the results and decided to purchase one. Since then, I have continued to be happy with the ways the FH-R has boosted efficiency as we install 1-gig fiber for high-speed internet. The FH-R allows us to place asphalt exactly where we need it.
As more and more infrastructure projects begin, following the passing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment Act, there is a strong push to move above-ground utility lines underground. Numerous advantages come with moving electricity lines, telephone wires and water pipes underground; however, underground utility work is expensive and tedious. The process involves inefficient installation methods and extremely costly solutions.

ROMCO Equipment Co. has been working with Road Widener since 2016, and it has been nothing but a positive experience. We were promised a shouldering product that was durable and had a place in our market — true on both points.
Crewmember safety is the highest priority in road construction. And with so many uncontrollable variables on a busy highway or narrow back road, a contractor shouldn’t be forced to further risk their crew’s safety by using poorly designed equipment.
Road Widener offers the industry’s first Offset Vibratory Roller attachment. The attachment’s offset, patented design allows the host machine to drive safely on flat ground while compacting sloping shoulders, ditches and other hard-to-reach areas alongside the road, a task that has traditionally put road crews in danger of rollover accidents, increased workers’ comp costs and led to poor safety ratings.
Our customers have high standards when it comes to equipment. Wagner Equipment Co. serves some of the largest asphalt contractors in Colorado’s metropolitan areas. They are in need of the latest in road construction and road repair equipment to keep their businesses running at peak efficiency.
Commerce City, Colorado implemented a money-saving tactic, by purchasing a Road Widener. Having previously used a Motor Grader machine, Commerce City could only widen one mile per day. However, with the Road Widener, the city was able to complete up to two miles per day.
