Weber VPR 700 Paver Roller

The VPR 450 rolls gently over the material working the polymeric sand into the joints and ensures it fills the joints fully right down to the bedding layer. This prevents the slabs or paving stones from shifting, cracking or chipping.

This machine is designed for larger slabs and pavers that are non-tumbled with smooth surfaces, have clean lines or have chamfered edges that can sometimes chip or crack easily if using a traditional tamper for final compaction over the pavers.

Features of the Weber VPR 700 Paver Roller include:

  • Optimal weight distribution across PU rollers
  • Prevents shifting, cracking and chipping
  • Minimizes dust from compacting polymeric jointing sands
  • Rubber-coated rollers protect the surface of the installed material
