Excavator Wheeled Compactors

Tysea’s excavator compaction wheels, also knows as a sheeps foot, are the ideal excavator attachment for soil compaction. 

Sheepsfoot compactors are beneficial for breaking up and compacting hard soils such as clay or other clumping materials.  These compaction wheels excel where regular vibratory compaction systems do not as they can access hard to reach and sensitive areas.

Compaction Wheel Benefits

The vibration action of  excavator vibratory systems pose a risk to nearby cement pads, pipes and fittings.  Due to the smooth compaction process of the compactor wheel, the risks that are associated with vibratory compaction systems are significantly if not completely eliminated. 

Sheepsfoot compactors establish a uniform soil combination with a mixing motion that kneads and breaks up soil, providing better soil compaction in trenches.
