Felco Straddle Wheel Compactors are designed to efficiently and uniformly backfill large diameter pipe. Within the rigid exterior frames, 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 and is supported by our industry best FIVE YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY.
Straddle Wheel Compactors are custom designed to match up with pipe diameter and junction requirements. Distance between the wheels can be manual adjusted, and we also offer hydraulic width-adjusting systems. A variety of footpad patterns are available to best match up with soil conditions and to help shore up material under the haunches of the pipe to prevent ovalization.
Bolt-On Ears are available on Straddle Wheel Compactors – which allows use on other similar class excavators with different ear dimensions by purchasing an additional bolt-on ear assembly from Felco.
As an additional option, the wheel / frame assemblies can also be bolt-on, to allow different wheels and/or different frame heights to be used.
Please call Felco Industries to discuss sizing options for the Felco Straddle Wheels – we build these custom to match up with the project and the excavator.
