The YTS HDPE Roller Compactor is built for fast preparation of ski trails regardless of new snow depth. While some other compactors will work only in small snow accumulations, the combination of roller and finisher in one unit compacts and finishes snow in one pass.
The roller has been redesigned for the 2021 season! It is now much more stable at high speeds for transportation around your trails! The compaction pressure has yet to be calculated, but the older roller with fresh gas springs has a down pressure of 82 lbs. I modified our local club’s roller and put new gas springs on it for the test. I’ll measure the down pressure of the new roller on the same compaction pan soon.
The Roller material is high-density polyethylene, one of the toughest, slickest materials available today. The polyurethane finisher is pressed firmly onto the snow with two gas springs. The compactor lifts up and can be fastened for backing up. The frame is well constructed to protect all moving parts. A Lightweight Tracksetter can be attached to the rear crossbar (with optional hitch) to compact, finish and set track in one pass.
