      Forget about spending money to rent a plate compactor. With a price this good and equipment this reliable, buying a compactor for the job site has never made more sense. A must have tool for anyone working on walkways, patios, paver installations, landscaping or small asphalt projects. Powerful 212cc /7 HP engine delivers 4,496 lbs. of force at 5,400 blows per minute, increasing the density of loose granular soils, gravel, sand, crushed aggregate and other mediums into a sound, level foundation. This type of foundation extends the life of your project as it reduces water seepage, swelling and expansion. Our unique swing-over handle makes it easy to maneuver around the work area even in narrow, cramped spaces. Our engine features an angled combustion chamber (for more power per displacement), a pull recoil start and a low-oil shutdown to protect the engine. Vibration isolators between the welded steel plate and the engine reduce vibration, extending the engine's life. High density foam in the handles also reduces vibration to the user. 1 Gal. fuel tank provides ample work time. Tough powder-coat finish keeps the product rust-free. 1-year limited warranty, 90 day commercial.

      • Got a good deal from Home Depot.

      I am installing a patio and two walkways. If I had rented a compactor it would have cost me more than the cost of this machine. Menards had it on sale so I got their price + 10%. That was $100 off HD's list price. The machine came ahead of schedule, was very well packaged and easy to set up. The engine starts on one pull. It does an excellent job of compaction. I have run heavy equipment for 30+ years and this is an excellent hand operated machine. As usual Home Depot came through.
