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.

The MV 58A forward asphalt plate compactor is designed for compaction of thin asphalt layers, small repairs, and road maintenance work.

Three plate compactors— LF60, LF75, and LF100—feature vibration-reduction handles and are lightweight for operation on soil and asphalt applications.

Wacker Neuson has expanded its rammer line with the addition of the BS70-4As, which is powered by a 3.6-horsepower, multi-position, four-cycle Honda GXR120 engine.

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.
