Two new vibratory plate compactors, BPU 3750A and DPU 3750H, feature Wacker Neuson’s integrated wheel design and deliver 8,317 pounds of centrifugal force. The BPU 3750A weighs 529 pounds and is powered by a 9-horsepower Honda engine; the DPU 3750H weighs 545 pounds and is powered by a 7.2-hp Hatz diesel engine. Forward and reverse travel speed is 88.6 feet per minute. A single-lever directional control provides easy operation, the company says, and an adjustable guide handle can be locked into the vertical position for easy transportation and storage.
