Evaluation

A combined roller to pave roads in the farming villages of India. It has a compact design allowing narrow roads to be paved. It can also be put on a truck and transported. Compared to the usual large heavy machinery, this design is somehow friendly as if you might unconsciously speak to it. The fact that such compact heavy machinery is solidly designed is very appealing.
