Vibratory Plate Compactors
Looking for a vibratory plate compactor? Check out the latest from manufacturers below.
Walk-behind vibratory-plate compactors are designed to compact loose materials such as granular soils, gravel, small aggregate, and hot asphalt mixes. Most models uses an engine-driven exciter mechanism that causes the machine’s base plate to rapidly vibrate, thus moving soil particles and asphalt aggregates closer together to effect consolidation. Vibration “frequency” might reach 4,000 vibrations per minute, while the plate’s amplitude might be just a fraction of inch.
