Pre-start checklist

Pre-start checklist form for padfoot & rollers


Rollers and padfoots stand as essential compaction tools in construction, playing a pivotal role in soil, gravel, and asphalt compaction. Ensuring that these machines work without hitches is crucial for the quality of the surfaces they work on and for the progress of the project at large. A routine inspection helps guarantee their operational efficiency and the safety of operators and other site workers.

Commencing any compaction job requires assurance that the machinery, whether a roller or padfoot, is up to the task. The unique demands on these machines, involving repetitive stress and vibration, make it crucial to catch potential issues before they escalate. Pre-start checklists serve as a preventive measure, helping avoid operational interruptions, costly breakdowns, and ensuring a consistent compaction outcome.
