Next-Level Versatility

How Road Widener accessories improve adaptability for attachments

Road and utility construction projects have many different variables. One day you might have a quick shouldering job and the next be on to backfill a curb in a new housing development. When jumping from project to project, it’s important to have equipment that can quickly and easily adapt to the next job or application. That’s why the Road Widener team gathers feedback from our customers and uses it to manufacture accessories to enhance our popular FH-R material placement and Offset Vibratory Roller attachments. Let’s look at our line of accessories and how they help improve productivity and safety in different applications.

FH-R Accessories

Our popular FH-R material placement attachment offers you 50% reduced labor at 1/5 the cost of traditional self-propelled equipment. It’s a versatile solution that precisely dispenses topsoil, gravel, asphalt, limestone and more. We designed it to be compatible with common machines likely already in your fleet such as skid steers, compact track loaders and wheel loaders. We offer several accessories to enhance the already versatile attachment.

Curb Backfiller Accessory

The Curb Backfiller accessory extends to the left or right of our FH-R material placement attachment and precisely dispenses dirt or aggregate over the curb to backfill it all in one smooth motion. Enjoy boosted efficiency, accuracy and safety while eliminating tedious sweeping and cleanup by replacing a backfilling method typically done manually by workers with shovels. You can operate the accessory with the original FH-R remote, improving convenience and reducing the number of needed crew members to just one.

Additionally, the accessory’s precision keeps material from spilling onto the roadway, eliminating the need to devote time or resources to cleaning up scattered material.

Height-Adjustable Push Rollers, Shoe Extensions

We design push roller extensions in standard and height adjustable. Push roller extensions meet the rear axles of almost any dump truck, ensuring the transition of material between the dump truck and host machine is seamless, eliminating any potential for spillage. The extensions provide constant contact with dump truck tires as the truck continuously fills the FH-R hopper with material for flawless, guess-free operation while dispensing large volumes of aggregate. The height-adjustable push rollers — which are our most popular — come with a mount plate to allow mounting at different heights on a dump truck. This is beneficial when working with dump trucks that have brake chambers protruding past the rear tire.

Our standard push rollers offer a 12-inch reach. For increased flexibility to accommodate various backend configurations, we provide a push roller extension kit that increases reach to 24 inches.

When you come across a road shouldering job or other projects that require a wider range of material placement than the standard 1-to-4-foot width, shoe extensions are the perfect accessory to turn to. Road Widener makes shoe extensions for the FH-R that provide a laydown width of up to 6 feet.

Offset Vibratory Roller Accessories

Our Offset Vibratory Roller improves efficiency and safety by allowing the host machine to drive safely on flat ground while compacting shoulders, ditches, trenches and other angled areas alongside the road. As with the FH-R, we provide multiple accessories to enhance the attachment’s capabilities, including minimizing dust and adding reach.

Spray Bar System

We offer a spray bar system to give you even more flexibility with the already versatile Offset Vibratory Roller. The system comes equipped with two seven-gallon tanks and fits on all Offset Vibratory Roller attachments. It helps suppress dust particles, compact aggregates and prevent clumping when rolling hot mix asphalt. The spray bar system improves performance when compacting a variety of materials including asphalt, stone, gravel and topsoil. In case you already have a water tank, we offer the spray bar system with or without the tanks.

Multiple Drum Sizes

Not every compacting project is equal, so we offer several different drum widths to make sure you have the right equipment for the job. You can purchase the Offset Vibratory Roller with a 3- or 4-foot-wide drum. Instead of investing in multiple expensive self-propelled machines to take on jobs of varying sizes and aggregates, you can simply purchase additional drums for the same attachment.

Accessories for Both Attachments

Adapter Plate

It’s important to us that our equipment works with yours. We offer an optional adapter plate that allows you to use virtually any brand of skid steer, loader, compact track loader or road grader with both the Offset Vibratory Roller and FH-R.

Even More Versatility

Our FH-R material placement and Offset Vibratory Roller attachments are already adaptable pieces of equipment, but sometimes the job calls for extra versatility. Reach out to us today to learn more about our unique accessories and how they can benefit your operation.
