Equipment Type

 Vibratory Plate Compactors

Vibratory plate compactors are engine-powered, walk-behind machines that impart powerful vibratory compaction effort to loose materials and asphalt via a bottom-mounted steel plate that might vary in area from 1.5 to 3 square feet. An eccentric drive mechanism propels the compactor forward, and if the compactor is "reversible", the mechanism also propels the machine in the opposite direction.

Toro’s compaction equipment line was developed through the company’s acquisition of products from Stone and includes plate compactors, rammers, and a trench roller.

Bobcat’s single-direction vibratory plate compactors compact granular soils and crushed aggregates to depths from 12 to 16.5 inches.

Two new vibratory plate compactors, BPU 3750A and DPU 3750H, feature Wacker Neuson’s integrated wheel design and deliver 8,317 pounds of centrifugal force.

Wacker Neuson DPU 3050H is a new vibratory plate compactor available with a 6.8-horsepower Hatz diesel or optional gasoline engines (BPU 3050 and BPU 3050A).

Wacker Neuson DPU 3050H is a new model of vibratory plate compactor. Available with a 6.8-horsepower Hatz diesel.
