There are only so many optimal days to get work done, so when road work season rolls around, your road construction equipment must be available, tuned up, and ready to work on your projects.

Road construction equipment types

Road construction equipment covers a wide range of applications from excavation and compaction to pouring cubs and final pavement. This work requires asphalt pavers, concrete pavers, planners, compactors, rollers, and brooms. Let’s take a quick look at each equipment type.


Concrete Pavers

Paving projects that require a strong and smooth surface, such has highways and high-traffic roadways, and need to hold up against lots of use for a long period of time use concrete. These projects require equipment designed specifically designed for concrete paving, such as curb and gutter machines, slipform pavers, placers/spreaders, trimmer/placers, cylinder finishers and more.

Asphalt pavers

Asphalt paving is the choice for projects that have a shorter timeframe and a tighter budget. Typically, asphalt projects are known for their quick turnaround time as roadways can open sooner with an asphalt surface. Asphalt pavers come in tracked, wheeled, or towed options, and compact the material as they pave. The addition of a screed to an asphalt paving machine allows the operator to distribute material in a uniform manner and controlled angle of attack.

Compaction machines

Every driver wants their roads to be smooth. Achieving that begins and ends with compaction. Before the roadway is paved, large tandem and single-drum rollers and soil compactors traverse the dirt surface to ensure a compact and smooth base for paving. After the road surface is applied, tandem and smooth surface pneumatic rollers perform final compaction and further smooth the roadway to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride.

Milling machines

As roads age, they heave, crack, and become uneven. The first step in fixing them is to create a uniform base. Milling machines – typically referred to as cold milling machines or cold planers – remove the top layer of the surface by grinding it away. This provides a solid and uniform foundation to pave on top of.

Soil stabilizers

Before compaction and grading can begin, some locations require the soil to be enhanced. Soil stabilizers mix the existing dirt with bonding agents to enhance the surface so it meets the project’s engineering standards, most importantly load bearing capacity. This is vital to the longevity of the road being built.

To create a long-lasting surface, there needs to be a clean and compact surface for the pavement to lay on top of. Milling remnants and other debris can create imperfections in a surface, leading to failures in the surface. A boom or sweeper is designed to clear any debris from the unfinished roadway prior to paving to ensure a lasting bond between surface and pavement.

Road construction equipment solutions and maintenance

The most common complaint heavy equipment users have is the issue of equipment downtime and the difficulty getting the service necessary to prevent it.

You might think getting service from the equipment dealer or manufacturer isn’t a problem. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, as equipment providers often don’t or can’t offer adequate post-purchase support.

The long lead time with replacement parts is aggravating the service issue. Supply chain and other problems are pushing lead times on replacement parts from days to weeks, or even months in extreme cases. At RMS, we’re dedicated to providing the support necessary to keep your fleet running at optimal productivity.
