Tire Compactor A tire compactor is a self-propelled compactor equipped with two sets of 4 or 5 tires: one at the front, one at the rear.
Compaction work is done by the tires. This type of compactor is less efficient than a roller compactor but more mobile. It is the weight of the machine alone that allows it to compact the soil, without vibration. It can be reinforced if necessary with water or concrete weights attached to the frame.
Tire compactors are used for medium earthworks or as road construction machinery to compact clay or sandy soils. Rows of tires provide a larger contact surface than cylinders, but are only suitable for shallow surface compaction.
