The JCB 116D is a soil compactor that’s designed first and foremost to give you ultimate productivity. Equipped with an innovative DIESELMAX engine, it provides reduced life cycle costs and fuel consumption. But that’s not all. It’s also designed and built to be as robust as possible in order to maximise productivity and uptime.

When servicing is needed, it’s quick and easy to perform. And the 116D is also an extremely ergonomic soil compactor that allows operators to perform the job efficiently and in all-day comfort.

Operators can get to work quickly on a JCB 116D soil compactor because of the intuitive, easy-to-use controls, all laid out ergonomically and using industry standard identification.

The ergonomically designed and positioned steering wheel and console offer fatigue-free operation.

For the ultimate in efficiency, comfort and ease-of-use, choose our ergonomically positioned compaction meter.

Fatigue-free all-day operation comes as standard: JCB soil compactors are designed to offer very low noise levels. What’s more, by isolating the operator stand with 4 heavy duty rubber mounts, we’ve ensured class-leading low vibration levels too.

JCB’s compactor drum isolation system has been specially developed and tested to maximise the transfer of energy and dynamic forces into the ground, whilst keeping the machine frame and the operator isolated from excessive vibration.


The JCB 116D soil compactor achieves maximum compaction performance through its combination of high front weight ratio and a heavy-duty dynamic vibration system.

A static linear load of over 30kg/cm plus class-leading 256kN of dynamic centrifugal force plus a high amplitude of 1.8mm equals class-leading compaction performance.

JCB’s 444 engine produces peak torque at just 2000rpm. This makes the 116D an extremely efficient soil compactor, with a very low noise level of just 104 dB.

With the optional padfoot (PD) shell kit for added versatility, the JCB 116D can be used either as a smooth drum machine for granular and non-cohesive materials, or as a padfoot machine for sticky, clay-type soils.
