Designed to be used in tough-to-reach places, Stehr’s SBV 60 H hexagonal plate compactor is capable of being operated by a 2.5-metric-ton mini-excavator, despite its “six-ton” output classification with 60 kN of centrifugal force. It comes with base plates measuring 26.5 by 26.5 inches and 33 by 33 inches. Due to two counteracting eccentric shafts, Stehr plate compactor attachments have a 100-percent vertical compaction force. The result is that very little vibration is transferred to the excavator and the surrounding area. Actually suitable for use by hydraulic excavators up to 15 metric tons, the 650-pound SBV 60 H compactor is simple to attach and detach, because there is no need for an extra hydraulic circuit.
