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

Vibratory Pod Design

Caterpillar exclusive vibratory pod design delivers desired balance between frequency and amplitude to provide a superior matte finish.

Higher Compaction Forces

High compaction forces result in fewer passes for greater productivity.

Replaceable Rubber Mounts

Replaceable rubber mounts isolate vibration and enhance vibratory capabilities.

High Strength Steel Drums

Durable high-strength steel drums are roll formed and finish welded for a smoother surface and longer life.

Pivoting Interface

Pivoting interface allows the drum to oscillate +/-15 degrees and follow the contour of the ground.

Spring-Loaded Scraper Bar

Spring-loaded dual direction non-metallic scraper bar maintains constant pressure on drum to prevent material build up. Non-metallic design minimizes noise.
