Bobcat Plate Compactors Expand M-Series Excavator Versatility


(WEST FARGO, N.D.) 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.

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 vpm. 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.
