Engcon develops low-flow excavator-mounted compactors

World-leading tiltrotator manufacturer Engcon is set to launch a newly-developed series of low-flow compactors that can be powered via tiltrotators.

Engcon has manufactured compactors for excavators since the end of the 1990s, but their high hydraulic flow meant they could not be connected directly to the tiltrotator's extra outlet and so could not be rotated.

The new series’ low hydraulic flow will mean excavator-mounted compactors can be used in many more environments, as well as making excavators even safer and more efficient.

In addition to the improved working environment and reduced risk of personal injury, Engcon's low-flow compactors can be used on inclines where conventional soil compaction with rollers or hand-operated compactors is not possible. This includes everything from ordinary road embankments to compaction around bridge supports and erosion protection along watercourses.

Improved safety

"Combining compactors with excavators is ideal as this can substantially improve site safety. Ground workers currently have to use compactors directly in excavation sites, and when compacting in deep excavations there is a great risk that the vibrations from the compactor will cause the shaft to collapse," says Johan Johansson, designer and project manager for Engcon's new low-flow compactor series.

“Our new low-flow compactors are a giant stride forward for excavator-mounted compactors, and offer operators the potential to transform site safety and efficiency,” adds Johan.

The series will include three models – the PC3500, PC6000 and PC9500. PC stands for Plate Compactor, while the numbers indicate the compaction force in kg for each of the compactors.

The new PC3500 compactor series can be seen in action at Engcon's stand (No FM.708/3) at the Bauma 2019 exhibition in Munich from 8-14 April.
