Vibratory Compaction Buckets


Felco Vibratory Compaction Buckets combine the compaction performance of either a Rammer or NPK Construction Equipment Vibratory Plate Compactor with the versatility of an excavator bucket. These vibratory units can apply from 7,800 to 34,000 pounds of impact force depending on size and model. Vibratory compaction forces the air in the soils to the surface which decreases air pockets making them ideal for compacting granular materials.


The Felco Vibratory Compaction Bucket combination allows the excavator operator to grab spoils with the bucket, lay out the proper lift depth, curl in the bucket, then hit the hydraulics and compact. This speeds up the backfill and compaction process by not having to switch back and forth between a digging bucket and a stand-alone vibratory compactor – no unhooking and reconnecting hydraulic lines.


Excavator operators can lay more uniform, compaction appropriate lifts with the Vibratory Compaction Bucket attachment, and they consistently report achieving 90% + compaction on projects throughout the U.S. and Canada.


Felco Vibratory Compaction Buckets require the excavator to be plumbed for an auxiliary hydraulic attachment with an open circuit that has a return to the machine’s hydraulic tank.


Just grab and lay out your lift, curl in the bucket, and compact
