Benefits and Features

Used for compacting soil, sand or gravel prior to pouring concrete or laying asphalt surfaces. Also ideal for asphalt patch work.

These units produce high-power impulses at a rate of 2200 impacts per minute driving soil particles close together for solid, stable compactions.

Cat® Compactors are performance-matched to Cat machines and integrate closely with the Cat Hammer line. Brackets and hydraulic kits are interchangeable between hammers and compactors. Compactors can be used with Pin Grabber Couplers, Dedicated Hydraulic Couplers or Pin Lock Couplers.

Hydraulic hoses are protected inside the frame of the compactor. Jumper lines are routed out the back of the compactor. Hoses are out of the way — even in tight trenches.

Oil changes are simplified with the rear centerline plug and can be changed while the compactor is installed.

An optional bolt-on backfill blade can be mounted on both front and back of the compactor.
