    Does anyone use this type of attachment with their mini skid for base compaction?

    hmmm....

    no, but I've often thought that that would be a great attachment for a mini-skid. I would definately look into it if one was available.

    I was thinking something a little wider, like the 36" width of the machine...

    I have compactors that are that wide. I know Bobcat has a vibratory roller that goes on a full size skid.. I was thinking the same for the mini. Would have to be at least 5-6k lbs force to be worthwhile.e

    Again depending on the size of your mini, there are certainly bigger ones, but perhaps to heavy or needing too much hydraul for a non-full-size skid steer.
