Plate compactors are an effective machine designed to compact the ground, making the surface smooth by transmitting vibration through the base plate. The vibrating action is generated from a motor driven exciter in a mounted vibrator case. This machine is suitable for making the ground surface smooth, such as leveling the soil and sand, finishing asphalt, and leveling pavers. Applications as followings:
Warning about incorrect application and abuse
Vibratory plate compactors are very hard to move forward and operate on a soil with too much water content (especially clay soil). They are not suitable for such an application. Soil compaction with large stones can be inefficient due to insufficient compacting force. Plate compaction is mainly applied for compacting surfaces smooth and it may not be effective for jobs that require heavy compaction. In the case of compacting ground deeply into the lower layer, it is recommended to use one of our Powered Tamping Rammers like the PB78 or PB98 for aggressive compaction before using vibratory plate compaction. Use this plate compactor for the finished surface compacting of soil, sediment, sand , and asphalt. It is not recommended for use on other applications.
*Note: Electric tools like Plate Compactors, Rammers, and Saws run best when supplied with adequate power. Industrial Grade extension cords are a necessity... consumer gage cords are likely to be undersized, unable to provide the flow of electricity needed for efficient use. The resulting voltage drop from using too light a cord over too long a distance will result in high amperage draw and potential for overheating. We use 10 gage industrial grade cords and ask you to consider the same.
