The MV 58A forward asphalt plate compactor is designed for compaction of thin asphalt layers, small repairs, and road maintenance work.
At 150 pounds, the MV 58A features an integrated, tubeless water distribution system that prevents asphalt from sticking to the plate, the company says. The machine also leaves zero tread on the asphalt, and has a 3-horsepower Honda engine. A corrosion-free one-gallon water tank features a flow adjustment valve, and the tank is also removable to support fast refills. Transport wheels are optional.
