CASE: new excavator plate compactors

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced five new plate compactors to its attachments lineup – the SC-30, SC-60, SC-80, SC-110 and SC-220. The plate compactors are ideal for utility work, and are primarily used to compact the foundation in shallower trenches and prevent movement/ground upheaval. These plates run on unidirectional hydraulics and are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 19 x 20 in. to 32 x 42 in.

For soil compaction, the SC series can compact up to 4 ft – more than five times the efficiency of handheld compactors. For slopes, the SC series takes on the challenge of efficiently compacting materials on an incline. The new plate compactors can also drive and extract piles, fence posts, guardrails and more. Because of their design and ease of use, the plate compactors simplify compaction work without introducing another machine or operator into the already cramped space.

Durable design

The SC series of plate compactors is designed for heavy compaction tasks, with a unique ‘Angle Technology’ base plate design that transfers and distributes vibratory forces more efficiently, and ultimately protects and extends the life of the compactor and carrier. The design allows for trench compaction in narrow areas where access is limited. The base plate also offers a lower center of gravity, which puts the attachment’s energy where it’s needed the most.

The plate compactor’s shock mounts are tilted 15 degrees outward, allowing better force distribution across the plate, less stress on the compactor during operation and reduced wear. This design also improves performance and durability. Another feature of the plates is their flow control with a reverse flow check valve that’s standard on all models and a stainless steel pressure relief valve for added safety.

The SC series features a wide variety of custom mountings available to fit a variety of carriers.

The plate compactor requires zero maintenance as it has a continuous oil bath lubrication system that extends the life of the bearings. Each SC series plate compactor is also covered under a two-year limited warranty.
