John Deere is adding three new plate compactors to its portfolio of more than 100 Worksite Pro attachments. Designed for trench, slope and excavation compaction applications, the PC4, PC7 and PC10 plate compactor models are compatible with the John Deere 26G, 30G, 35, 50G, 60G compact excavators; the 310L, 310L EP, 310SL, 310SL HL, 315SL and 410L backhoes; as well as most competitive models.

A large eccentric rotating weight creates vibration and impulse energy. The weight’s mass is further away from the shaft to provide increased impulse forces up to 8,000 pounds and improved compaction rates when working with compact granular soils. 

The motor is inset within the frame to protect it from damage. Hydraulic motor bearings use oil splash lubrication, and sealed eccentric bearings provide maintenance-free operation.

Delivering 4,000 pounds of impulse force, the PC4 model is available in a 13-inch width. The PC7 delivers 6,400 pounds of impulse force and is available in an 18-inch width. The PC10 model delivers 8,000 pounds of impulse force and is available in a 24-inch width. All three models boast 2,000-rpm frequency at regulated flow.
