Vibrating Plate Compactor
The Vibrating Plate Compactor works by vibrating or driving a flat metal plate against the ground over and over. This flat plate helps to compress and smoothen out the rough and uneven dirt. Plate compactors work best on granular soil, such as sand and gravel. This tool can also be used on asphalt, so for certain types of paving projects, the vibrating plate compactor is likely to be on site. This machine features a flat, broad plate mounted on the bottom of a motor and frame. Vibrating Plate Compactor is a heavy duty machine that uses either a plate or roller mechanism to compact soil.
