Wacker Neuson calls its new remote controlled reversible plate compactor, model DPU 130, the most powerful plate on the market. The 2,612-pound plate produces 29,225 pounds of centrifugal force, and the maker says it “Can easily do the work of any 7-ton roller.” Two separate base plates, each driven by an independent, hydraulic exciter allow the unit to turns within its own diagonal width. A 33-horsepower Lombardini diesel drives the DPU 130, which offers an operating width of 47.2 inches.
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.
The company has upgraded its 10-foot hydraulic ride-on trowel with a more powerful Tier 4-Final engine and a heavy-duty hydraulic cooling system.
Wacker has expanded its vibratory rammer line to include two models powered by a 4-cycle Honda engine.
