PeckWeld Compaction Wheels are engineered to withstand impact and thrust loads applied by excavators, backhoes, and skid steer loaders. The specially designed and positioned tamping pads provide optimal compaction in a wide varity of soil conditions. PECK Compaction Wheels do more with less wear and tear on the operator and machine than vibrating compaction machines. Our Compaction Wheels can be custom made with lugging to fit any machine. With PeckWeld you get more.
HOW IT WORKS:
The one unique feature that makes the "Wheel" so effective is the "Open Rim Design". The wheel is able to penetrate through the lift of trench fill and compact the soil from the bottom up rather than the top down.
The equipment operator, after using the "Wheel" for a reasonable amount of time, can normally tell that he has reached his required compaction by the feel of the wheel in the ditch through the hydraulic controls of the machine. Six to ten passes should be sufficient to achieve 95% and greater standard density in normal soil conditions.
