Compaction Control for Soil Compactors

Trimble compaction control systems help you roll a more efficient pattern so you can reach target passes and density faster.

Intelligent Compaction

  • Compact surface material and check finished grade accuracy in the same process
  • Achieve increased durability, stability and load-bearing capacity


Landfill Compactor Support

  • Trimble Earthworks supports four-drum landfill compactors with the Landfill Compaction Algorithm (LCA). This RTK solution determines the level of waste compaction through elevation change based on the size class of the machine.

Actionable Data

  • Continuously monitor pass counts and compaction measurement values (CMV) over the entire area
  • Collect and document comprehensive, real-time compaction data
  • Analyze data in the office to generate detailed reports and documentation to meet project specifications


Focus on Grade

Horizontal Steering Control functionality allows the operator to focus on grade, machine productivity and safety rather than worrying about steering. Watch the video to see it in action!

  • Automatically control the machine to follow any horizontal alignment from the 3D model
  • Enables operators of all levels to roll a more efficient pattern to reach target passes and density faster
  • Increase situational awareness and achieve better accuracy
  • Improve productivity with decreased overlap and fewer passes

Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform for Soil Compactors

The premium single-GNSS system for improving soil compaction operations and rolling a more efficient surface allows you to accurately control the compaction process, while reducing unnecessary passes.

Trimble Earthworks is now available in a subscription model with flexible terms to modernize your equipment with no large upfront cost.

Intuitive Software

  • Personalize the interface to match your workflow and a variety of configurable views make it easier to see the right perspective for maximum productivity
  • Colorful graphics, natural interactions and gestures, and self-discovery features make Trimble Earthworks intuitive and easy to learn

Efficient Compaction

  • Pass count mapping to monitor the number of passes and avoid over or under-compaction
  • Achieve compaction target faster, more accurately and with less rework
  • Reduce over-compaction to optimize fuel use and machine time such as work previously completed versus work completed that day
  • Improve testing success, reduce rework and lower ongoing maintenance costs

Connected Construction

  • Supervisors and quality managers can monitor compaction activities in real-time, and operators can immediately identify the areas that require further compaction using Trimble WorksOS and Trimble Earthworks
  • Collect and document comprehensive, real-time compaction data
  • Analyze data in the office to generate detailed reports and documentation to meet project specifications

CCS900 Compaction Control System

Soil and sub-surface material compaction measurement for tandem rollers and single smooth drum and pad foot rollers.


  • Wireless data share allows each compactor to see the work being done by other compactors in real-time to achieve better surface quality, and save time and fuel
  • Transfer compaction data to the office for analysis


  • Single GNSS 
  • Dual GNSS 
  • Total station-based 

In-cab components include a display and an optional in-cab printer for on-site documentation and sign-off purposes.

Monitoring and Analysis

Supervisors and quality managers can monitor compaction activities using the optional in-cab printer or web-based software.

  • Ensure uniform lift and consistent pass counts to increase surface quality
