Vibratory Plate Compactors


Felco Vibratory Plate Compactors are the ideal tool when it comes to compacting on tight repair jobs, trenches, foundations, or slope applications. Vibratory compaction forces the air in the soils to the surface which decreases air pockets making them ideal for compacting granular materials. These vibratory plate tamper units can apply from 3,500 to 40,000 pounds of impact force depending on size and model. Each compactor vibrates at around 2,100 Cycles Per Minute or Frequency, which has been found to provide optimum compaction for the widest range of granular soils.

All compactors are equipped with the following:

  • Allied Construction Products HO-PAC
  • Oil splash bearings that require zero maintenance ( no greasing)
  • Standard four function valve (flow regulator) controlling flow, pressure, regeneration and oil flow direction
  • Hosing / hydraulic connections at ear
  • Standard width and length foot pads (custom dimensions also available)
  • Custom and OEM Bolt-On ear assemblies and quick coupler lugs

NOTE: Felco Vibratory Plate Compactors featuring an Allied Vibratory Plate Compactor motor, 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. On a closed hydraulic circuit such as one for a thumb attachment, the excessive back pressure in the return line will cause the shaft seal in the motor to blow out and start leaking. The valve adds extra resistance, so the back pressure goes up when the valve is closed, creating a spike in pressure.
