Bobcat® Trench Compactor


Bobcat® Trench Compactor


When the digging is done, finish the job with the trench compactor attachment. 

The large, wheel-type compactor compresses soil down in the trench, using a vibratory shaker box for optimum compaction in any soil type. To ensure proper RPM, the vibratory shaker box features a built-in flow regulator. 

The trench compactor attachment works most efficiently in trenches four to 12 in. wide, and up to four feet deep. Power into the soil and pack it down with force. For trenches that are more than two feet deep, backfill and compact the soil in two or three layers to achieve desired compaction. 

This attachment is ideal for locations such as backyards, golf courses, and parks. It finishes off any trenching job, working to power down and compress the soil for a neatly-packed trench.
