Two updated plate compactor attachments expand the versatility of Bobcat
M-Series compact excavators, making safer and more efficient work of
restoring trenches. The new PCF34 and PCF64 flat-top plate compactor
attachments offer enhanced compatibility with Bobcat M-Series
excavators. Mounting changes to the top of the plate, including the use
of a bolt-on breaker cap, provide new trench compaction capabilities to
the E80 excavator. The largest excavator offered by Bobcat Company, the
E80 features a maximum dig depth of 15 feet 6 inches and a maximum reach
of 24 feet 5 inches.

Applications for the plate compactor attachment include compacting
trenches, footings, and slab areas. Other applications include driving
piles when building retaining walls and compacting spoil. The compact
design of the plate enables compacting even in hard-to-reach areas like
down in trenches and on slopes. Shock mounts distribute vibration evenly
while keeping the attachment level, increasing stability and improving
compaction efficiency.

Bobcat excavator operators can compact down in
trenches without leaving the cab and reduce the need for a person
working in the trench.


 

Mounted at the end of an excavator arm, the plate compactor attachment
provides more powerful compaction force than a hand-operated compactor
and reduces the need for a worker in the trench. The PCF34’s length is
26 inches from the excavator arm and its plate width is 18.75 inches.
The attachment’s dynamic force is 3,400 pounds and the compaction
frequency is 2,100 vpm. The PCF34 is compatible with the Bobcat E32,
E35, E42, E45, E50 and E55 excavators.

The PCF64’s length is 34 inches from the excavator arm and its plate
width is 23.5 inches. The attachment’s dynamic force is 6,400 pounds and
the compaction frequency is 2,000 vibrations per minute. The PCF64 is compatible with the
three largest Bobcat excavators including the E55, E60 and E80.

With the PCF34 and PCF64, Bobcat excavator operators can compact down in
trenches without leaving the cab and reduce the need for a person
working in the trench, increasing jobsite safety and operator comfort.
