This work package explains how components of the Roller, Motorized, Vibrating Tandem Steel Drums work together. A
functional description is given for the engine system, fuel system, electrical system, propel system, steering system,
vibratory system and water spray system.
Theory of operation is the same for the CB534B and CB534C Rollers. CB534B Roller is shown unless otherwise indi-
