Firm And Compact Trenches   

When your application is to compact the bottom of trenches Simex CT vibrating compaction wheels offer the ideal solution. With Simex Compaction wheels a firm, even and extremely compact bed will be achieved that is essential for the durability of the trench preventing the road surface from giving way and therefore offering maximum road traffic safety.

Compaction wheels are available in different wheel widths that are quick and easy to change. With the ability to change the wheel pads you can compact drenches of different widths from 200mm  to 400mm.

Compaction wheels have been designed to work the wheel in central position or for working in full offset position allowing the prime mover run alongside the trench. Reverse rotation vibrating twin shaft located in the centre of the wheel ensures the maximum compacting power and excellent vibration damping

Suitable for skid steer loaders, as well as backhoe loaders and other loaders (whether hydrostatic drive or not).



  • Wheel width can be adjusted via bolted sectors that are easily changed on site.
  • Possibility to mount the rotation device allows compaction in any position and in the most difficult-to-reach spots.
  • Due to reverse-rotation, vibrating twin shaft positioned at centre of the wheel; vertical forces are added up and horizontal forces are countered for increased operator comfort.
