  • Compact backfilled trenches

How It Works

The wheel rolls through the trench using the carrier controls. The weight of the wheel and down pressure from the carrier provides the compacting force.

While in the trench, the open rim sheep foot design of the wheel penetrates through the lift of backfill to compact the fill from the bottom up rather than from the top down. This eliminates bridging and voids for better compaction. The depth of the lift can be varied to match moisture content, texture and other soil conditions.
