Section XVI. FRAME ASSEMBLY
The main frame of the road roller is of all-welded construction, made of heavy structural channel (6, 8, and 10) and
plate (1) members, secured by cross-members (7). The frame is reinforced by a floor plate welded under the entire
engine and transmission compartments. A removable cover plate for access to the oil pan from the underside of the roller
is bolted or in some instances tack welded to the bottom cover plate. The side plates (1) are cut to arch over the steering
roll yoke, with an upper and lower cross plate welded in place to hold the king pin bearing seats. A towing connecting (9)
is welded to the front channel (8) at the compression roll end of the roller. The compression roll housing is of welded
construction with a built-in sprinkler tank.
