To meet the compaction demands of numerous industries and job site requirements, Bobcat has launched nine light compaction machines in North America. This latest expansion of products helps provides users with ideal versatility and productivity for construction, roadwork, and landscaping compaction equipment.

"By adding light compaction machines to our current product offering, customers have a greater array of equipment options to help them accomplish more," says Mike Ballweber, president of 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."

The full range of Bobcat light compaction products includes rammers, forward plates compactors, reversible plates compactors, and trench rollers. The light compaction line can be used in a variety of settings and is designed to meet compaction requirements on nearly all job sites.  

The Bobcat light compaction lineup includes:

Bobcat rammers (models R60P and R68P) are user-friendly. Highly efficient in confined work areas, Bobcat rammers reach places other equipment can't. The equipment directs all compaction power onto any target surface while maintaining ideal balance.

Three Bobcat forward plate compactors (models FP10.33, FP15.40, and FP15.50) are equipped with forward movement capabilities for ideal compaction results and less operator fatigue. While working with Bobcat's forward plate compactors, operators will get ideal 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 compaction 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 contain features to increase productivity. Each machine within the line possesses different strengths, including maneuverability, power, fuel efficiency, and more. The versatility of this line was 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," says Travis Kidder, senior product specialist for Bobcat Company. "Whatever your compaction needs are, look no further; Bobcat's light compaction range provides the necessary capabilities to meet your needs." 

The light compaction equipment line-up will be on display at Equip Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky, from October 18 to 21, 2022.
