Each of these methods deliver different results and are each employed for different types of soil and soil conditions. There are a few things to know before you go hiring a compactor, it’s best to know the soil conditions and the scope of your project among other details.

Dynamic compaction equipment- types of compactors

There are a number of different types of compactors to help you complete your project. Each of these kinds of compactors serves a different purpose and deliver different results for the desired compaction.

  • Smooth wheeled roller
  • Sheepsfoot roller
  • Pneumatic roller
  • Vibratory roller
  • Rammers
  • Plate compactors and vibratory plate compactors

Smaller machines like the vibratory plate compactors and rammers are often used on smaller scale projects and in areas that may be difficult for a large machine to reach. They deliver the same result as a large roller or other type of compactor but require more manual labour. Rollers are large machines that can cover larger areas of soil. They are more effective for road construction and other large projects that require quick and easy compaction.
