Reversible plate compactors use a hydraulic drive to adjust twin rotating eccentric shaft mounted on the baseplate. The positioning of the weights allows forward, reverse or spot compaction. The result is LOW amplitude, HIGH frequency VIBRATION that consolidates the material, removes air pockets and increases load bearing ability.

Asphalt, underground, concrete and general contractors; landscapers, utilities

What soil types are best for plates?
