Chicago Pneumatic Announces RC Series Rig-Mounted Hydraulic Compactors

Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment has announced the new RC Series rig-mounted hydraulic compactors. Designed for high performance and minimal downtime, RC hydraulic compactors are ideal for a variety of job applications, including trench and slope compaction, road repair, post and pile driving, and waste compaction. With six models available for carrier weight classes from 1 to 40 44 tons, all models are built to attach easily with a standard or quick-change adapter.

With a high compaction frequency (2,100 n/min to 2,200 n/min) and powerful vibrating force (3,000 3086 lbf to over 25,000 lbf), the RC hydraulic compactors will make quick work of most compaction jobs. Even with all this power, the RC hydraulic compactors produce less noise than standard hand-operated forward and reverse compactors, all while keeping operators at a safe distance.

The RC Series hydraulic compactors feature Chicago Pneumatic’s AutoLube system, which eliminates the need for regular manual greasing. The compactors also include a standard, specially designed oil-bath system around the shaft bearing, which ensures continuous lubrication and minimal downtime due to on-site maintenance.

Additional technical features of the RC series hydraulic compactors include an optional integrated hydraulic flow and pressure control, standard quick-change adapter plates and interchangeable vibrating plates. There is also no limitation of back pressure in the return line, and the use of solid rubber isolators provides excellent shock dampening of return vibrations, minimizing wear on the carrier pins and bushings. The RC Series also features a drain-free motor, eliminating the need for a third line drain, and includes a range of heavy-duty hydraulic connection hoses, fitting kits and maintenance kits.
