The compaction wheel extends the working capacity of the excavator. Since it does not require hydraulics, it utilizes the weight of the excavator to compact soil and clay. The compaction wheel is commonly used in construction, road building, landscaping and other earthmoving applications where it is important to achieve proper ground compaction. compaction wheels are commonly used in construction, road building, landscaping and other earthmoving applications where it is important to achieve proper ground compaction.
What are compaction wheels used for?
The compaction wheel is designed for use in trenches, retaining wall backfill applications and face walls. When mounted on an excavator, the compaction wheel, with its footed protrusions, thoroughly penetrates the trench fill, eliminating voids by mixing and displacing the soil, ultimately achieving bottom-to-top compaction. The static weight of the excavator arm pushing down on the wheel increases its compaction capacity.
Suitable for excavators weighing up to 35 tons, these rugged compaction wheel attachments are made of strong steel drums and wear-resistant blocks that maintain long-term performance under test conditions.
