GRW Rubber-Tyred Road Roller
Hans Peter Ackermann, Gerhard Mahler
The GRW pneumatic-tyred roller, with adjustable ballast, sets significant standards in many respects in the special segment of rubber-tyred asphalt work. This initially becomes visible through a strong appearance, leaving ample space for innovative detail solutions. Looking at the machine from different perspectives, the design language of the bodywork creates a surprising effect: the asymmetrical frame renders the impression of a seemingly symmetric machine since the previously asymmetrical arrangement of the wheel sets is visually neutralised by the new innovative frame concept. The GRW breaks with the image of a conventional pneumatic-tyred roller in terms of function and form. It features a compact construction, allows for easy handling due to an organised arrangement of functions, and provides a considerable degree of clarity. Last but not least, it also meets concerns for a high level of operational safety.
