Excavator Static & Vibratory Roller Attachments
MBW static wheels are built to standards suitable for vibratory compactors. That means heavier bearings (to 1,100,000 lbs. static load), heavier shafts (to 710,000 lbs. shear strength) with a correspondingly heavy frame that supports the wheel at both ends to minimize frame and shaft deformation. Our static wheels are heavily built because they can be converted to vibratory wheels when need arises.
MBW pioneered the industry's first boom-mounted vibratory wheels in the late 1990s. We are now introducing a whole new generation of vibratory wheels. These new wheels feature a redesigned frame that supports the wheel or drum at both ends to reduce stress concentrations, an improved suspension system that protects isolators from damage due to over deflection and exciter operating temperatures that have been significantly lowered.
What Applications Are Best Suited To UVW Vibratory Rollers?
UVWs remove the compaction bottleneck in trenching applications. The result is an overall increase in trench work productivity.
UVWs are ideally suited to the compaction of slopes. UVWs are the preferred means of compacting the sloped sides and bottom of irrigation canals to reduce.
Methods of Attachment to Boom
UVWs attach to host machine booms via pins and bushings or quick coupler systems. MBW will machine bushings to dimensions provided by the user. Alternatively, quick coupler systems can be purchased from MBW or a dealer of the user's choice.

EXA18L & EXA18 Vibratory Wheels
The EXA18L is a lightweight (1090 lbs) vibratory wheel for large mini-excavators and rubber tired backhoes 12K to 18K weight.
The EXA18 is a 1,515 lb vibratory wheel with heavier frame and overall construction. This model is recommended for excavators in the 18K to 45K range. Both models have an 18" operating width and are available in vibratory mode only.
W24 & W36 Vibratory Wheels
This highly versatile range of boom or bucket mounted rollers is available in interchangeable 24 and 36 inch working widths, padded or smooth drum configurations, static or vibratory modes. Massive frame supports wheels at both ends to accommodate enormous static and vibratory forces, torque on uneven surfaces and provide maximum life. Shafting and bearings are highest capacity in the industry. Up to 10 times more productive than walkbehind rollers or boom-mounted vibratory plates. Maintenance is low when properly serviced. Recommended for excavators in the 18K to 60K range. Mount to booms via pins or quick coupler. Mount to buckets via quick coupler. All models standard with integral leveling blade.
- Backfill leveling blade integral to all UVWs. Simple rotation of the UVW positions blade to quickly and uniformly spread backfill material.
- Interchangeable 24 and 36 inch wide drum assemblies.
