Ground compaction tools are used to compress the soil or ground to make it more stable and supportive. This is important for a variety of construction projects, such as building roads, foundations, and embankments. There are many different types of ground compaction tools available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Hydraulic Compaction Plates

Hydraulic Compaction Plates

Hydraulic compaction plates are versatile tools that can be used to compact a variety of soil types, including sand, gravel, and clay. They are also relatively lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, making them ideal for use in confined spaces. Hydraulic compaction plates work by using a hydraulic motor to vibrate a base plate. This vibration compresses the soil and helps to remove air pockets.

The EarthQuake hydraulic compactor is designed for effectively compacting soil in trenching, ground levelling, embankment construction, driving in and pulling out posts, sheet piling and other formworks. 

Designed to suit excavators from 3 to 33 tonne.

Compaction Wheels

Roo Attachments Compaction Wheel

Compaction wheels are typically used for large-scale compaction projects, such as road construction. They are heavy machines with wheels that have metal or rubber lugs. As the wheels roll over the ground, the lugs crush and compact the soil. Compaction wheels are very effective at compacting large areas of soil quickly and evenly. However, they are not as well-suited for use in confined spaces as hydraulic compaction plates.

Roo Attachments Compaction Wheels are suitable for mini-excavators, excavators and backhoes. The Compaction Wheels are designed to self-clean the wheel, ensuring continues work with minimal interruption.

Designed to suit excavators from 2.8 to 36 tonne.

Vibratory Rollers

Digga Vibratory Rollers

Vibratory rollers are another type of heavy-duty compaction machine. They are similar to compaction wheels, but they also have a vibrating mechanism. This vibration helps to compact the soil more deeply and efficiently. Vibratory rollers are often used for compacting subgrade layers in road construction and for compacting embankments.

Designed to suit most Mini Skids, Skid Steer Loaders & Track Loaders.

Which tool to use?

The best ground compaction tool for a particular project will depend on a number of factors, including the type of soil, your machine, the size of the area to be compacted, and the budget available. In general, hydraulic compaction plates are a good choice for small to medium-sized projects, while compaction wheels and vibratory rollers are often better suited for large-scale projects.

Here is a summary of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of tool:

Hydraulic compaction plates

  • Advantages: Versatile, lightweight, and easy to manoeuvre.
  • Disadvantages: Not as effective at compacting large areas as compaction wheels and vibratory rollers.

Compaction wheels

  • Advantages: Very effective at compacting large areas quickly and evenly.
  • Disadvantages: Heavy and difficult to manoeuvre, not well-suited for use in confined spaces.

Vibratory rollers

  • Advantages: Very effective at compacting large areas quickly and deeply.
  • Disadvantages: Heavy and difficult to manoeuvre, not well-suited for use in confined spaces.
