Felco Industries

Wheel Compactors

Overview

Felco Wheel Compactors are the premier wheel option on the market. Within the rigid exterior frame, Felco uses our proven Sealed Journal Bearing System so the strength of the axle assembly, combined with its maintenance-free design (no greasing) provides superior performance and less downtime due to its ability to withstand heavy use.

Excavator operators use Felco Wheel Compactors typically when the extra extension range of the wheel is preferable, and contractors consistently report achieving 90% + compaction in most soil types throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Bi-directional scraper teeth assemblies remove excess material between the rows of bumps, and the replaceable X156 dirt teeth are a standard size and available from most dealers.

Felco’s Sealed Journal Bearing System requires NO DAILY MAINTENANCE and is supported by an industry best FIVE YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY.

Bolt-On Ear Assemblies are standard with each wheel compactor – which allows use on other similar class excavators with different ear dimensions by purchasing an additional bolt-on ear assembly from Felco.

Bolt-On Ear Assemblies

Bolt-On Ear Assemblies are standard with each full size wheel compactor – which allows use on other similar class excavators with different ear dimensions by purchasing an additional bolt-on ear assembly from Felco.

Please provide the serial # on the Wheel Compactor which is located between the current set of ears, and the Make / Model of the excavator that you want the new ears to mount on.

To confirm ear dimensions, please click on this Ear Dimensions Confirmation Sheet.

A TILTROTATOR is a hydraulic coupler that allows an excavator operator to rotate an attachment a full 360 degrees, as well as tilt the attachment up to 45 degrees side-to-side. It has expanded the ways an excavator can be used on a job site.

Increasingly Felco Industries is building our Felco Wheel Compactors with adapters based on standardized sizing or Symmetrical Quick Couplers for Excavators as documented by Maskinleverantörerna, a trade association for Sweden’s established suppliers of mobile work machines. Click here for more details.

To translate, the tiltrotator manufacturers, including three highly recognized companies shown below, agreed upon a standardized set of measurements for their adapters. This makes it very convenient for Felco to build to these specs once we know the adapter class.

Here are a few examples of Felco Wheel Compactors with Tiltrotator adapters:
