Vibratory Soil Compactors Vibratory Soil Compactors

Smooth drum compactors produce consistently reliable results when compacting semi-cohesive and granular materials. With operating weights up to almost 19 metric tons, there is a Cat Soil Compactor sized to meet the most demanding production and density requirements. Padfoot drum compactors produce consistently reliable results when compacting semi-cohesive and cohesive materials. Pads are tapered and penetrate deeply into the soil to build strength from the bottom up. Small pad face area concentrates force to deliver the highest compaction energy so production goals are met with fewer units and less fuel consumed. All dual-amplitude models feature an exclusive Cat eccentric weight design that assures positive amplitude selection while preventing contamination of the weight shaft bearing lubrication.
