Wacker Neuson Battery- and Gas-Powered Plate Compactors

Nov. 2, 2021

Wacker Neuson's APS (battery-powered) and BPS (gasoline-powered) single-direction vibratory plate compactors are designed for a variety of soil and asphalt compaction applications.

They feature an optimized base plate design for handling, and the angular side edges of the base plate are meant to provide a smooth, clean asphalt finish along curbs and obstructions. The responsive guide handle makes it easy and comfortable to operate, while also reducing hand-arm vibration, the company says. The large lifting eye and wide carrying handles make moving and loading the machine convenient. All models come with or without a large-capacity water tank for asphalt applications. A large, rotary knob allows for regulation of water flow, while the sprinkling system disperses water across the entire plate to reduce waste.
