Compaction Equipment – Soil, Filling & Asphalt


It is crucial to have a solid foundation before any construction endeavour should take place, which is why many contractors need to hire compaction equipment. Without a solid foundation, you leave room for movement under the construction you have made which in turn could lead to cracking and breaking of the base you have worked hard to create.

Talisman Hire is one of the few reliable and reputable stockists of superior quality compaction equipment, making them the preferred supplier among South African construction companies and contractors.

Our range of compaction equipment includes the following:

  • Rammershave a flat surface with a steel plate, which pulsates into the ground (or other base materials). This type of compaction equipment is very effective compactors and easy to operate (the user only has to edge the rammer slightly to make it move to a different position). Ideal for the compaction of confined areas, deep fills, trenches and narrow wall foundations.
  • Rollers (single drum rollers, pedestrian or walk-behind rollers, and ride-on rollers) consist of numerous oversized steel wheels that compress and compact the desired materials due to the drums vibrating combined with the weight of the roller. This method needs a number of passes with the roller to get an even finish. With a single drum – and pedestrian roller the operator will walk behind the roller, and with a ride-on roller the operator will sit on it. Single drum – and pedestrian rollers range between 200 – 1200 kg, whilst ride-on rollers will typically weigh between 1,2 and 2,6 tonnes. It is ideal for trench and surface compaction, non-confined areas, the rehabilitation and maintenance of asphalt - and soil road surfaces.
  • Plate compactors (conventional – and forward reversible plate compactors) have wide and thick steel plates which are driven by a vibratory action, resulting in a smooth and well compacted finish. It works in the same way rammers do except their centre of gravity is on the ground and the pulses are shorter and quicker. Conventional plate compactors are ideal for compaction and smoothing of large surfaces, with forward-reversibles ideal for areas where high compaction measurements are required like trenches, the resurfacing of tarred - and dirt roads and its rehabilitation.
