Solid ballast is easily added to or removed from each roller deck, allowing even compaction across all rollers. Pro-Roll has the ability to make sharp turns without scuffing, according to the company, because of its four individually mounted transport tires, short roller length and Progressive's Pro Lift-N-Turn system.

Textron Specialized Vehicles has incorporated this innovative technology, with its improved energy efficiency and increased range, into its Cushman Shuttle 4, Shuttle 6 and Shuttle 8 models (the number indicates the number of passengers the vehicle can accommodate). The company says that AC drivetrain technology is superior to DC electric power because its alternating flow of charge allows it to deliver more power and performance while using less energy.
