Bobcat light compaction equipment

The Bobcat Company's expansion into light compaction equipment with the introduction of nine machines is allowing landscapers to have a more streamlined experience with the company. The line includes a trench roller, reversible plant compactors, forward plate compactors, and rammers. 

"We have a lot of landscapers who are excited about what Bobcat offers and already in the dealership for other equipment," says Travis Kidder, senior product specialist for the company.

"This new lineup will add more versatility to their equipment needs for an overall streamlined experience." 

The light compaction line can be used in a variety of settings and is designed to meet compaction requirements on nearly all job sites.  

“By adding light compaction machines to our current product offering, customers have a greater array of equipment options to help them accomplish more,” adds  Mike Ballweber, president, Bobcat Company North America. “We know our customers work hard each and every day, and these machines give them even more versatility to do their best work.”

Solutions for every compaction job site

The Bobcat light compaction lineup includes:

Bobcat rammers (models R60P and R68P) are high-performance machines that are user-friendly and engineered to last. Highly efficient in confined work areas, Bobcat rammers reach places other equipment can’t. Directing all compaction power onto any target surface while maintaining optimal balance, Bobcat rammers are agile, precise, and built to last.

Three Bobcat forward plate compactors (models FP10.33, FP15.40, and FP15.50) are equipped with industry-leading forward movement capabilities for great compaction results and less operator fatigue. While working with Bobcat’s forward plate compactors, operators will get quality performance with low fuel consumption.

Three Bobcat reversible plate compactors (models RP22.40, RP30.50, and RP49.20D) are ideal for compacting granular material such as sand, gravel,  and asphalt. These walk-behind machines are as nimble as they are durable. These machines enable operators to experience quick directional changes with minimal effort in tight spaces.            

The Bobcat TR75 trench roller, operated by remote control, delivers high-compaction performance on a variety of soil types. The TR75 trench roller can take on a variety of job sites with its oscillating articulated joint that allows the trench roller’s drums to maintain contact on uneven ground.     

Bobcat’s light compaction range of products contains many features to increase productivity. Each machine within the line possesses different strengths, including maneuverability, power, fuel efficiency,  and much more. The versatility of this line was thoughtfully designed with operators in mind, crowning maneuverability and efficiency as the utmost priority.

“Bobcat’s light compaction equipment was created for jobs in small spaces, requiring efficient compaction with an emphasis on operator comfort,” sums up Kidder. “Whatever your compaction needs are, look no further; Bobcat’s light compaction range provides the necessary capabilities to meet your needs.”
