Excavator Attachment Hire the Compaction Wheel


As we have discussed the many uses for Excavators and the wide range of Attachments available across our blogs, we bring you the next installment of Excavator Attachments we specialise in, which can take your Excavator hire to that next level of productivity. In this blog article we would like to introduce you to the Compaction Wheel and how it too can add value to your work-site.

What is a Compaction Wheel and why do I need one?

An Excavator Compaction wheel is an attachment which allows the operator to transform their excavator into a vehicle to easily for example compact dirt back into trenches.

How does the Compaction Wheel work?

There are various types of Excavator compaction wheels, each designed for unique projects, however one predominant change is the width and number of wheels.

Their ideal purpose is to assist with the compacting of dirt into trenches, as mentioned above. This is possible through the compaction wheels which compact to the side of the wheel, allowing for less pass overs and faster compaction.

The wheel takes the load off the Excavator, giving the Excavator the ability to effortlessly get the job done without putting added pressure on the Excavator.
