Compactor rentals

Considerations when renting a compactor

With such an array of different styles available, the first thing you need to think about when you are renting a compactor is which basic style would work the best for you. If you have only a small space, then a rammer or a walk behind model is likely going to be the best solution. Those who have much larger spaces, such as a parking lot, will likely want to utilize a ride on model for their needs.

Consider the size of the plates when you are making your choice, as well. Again, those who have a small space will likely want a machine that has a smaller plate, which can get into all of the areas that need compacting. You should also consider the amount of power and the blows per minute that the compactor's capable of providing.

Features of compactors

There are several different types of compactor available today, and they come in many different sizes and styles. There are walk behind models, as well as a rammer style that have some similar features to a jackhammer, and even a riding model for those who have much larger spaces, such as a parking area, which needs to be compacted.

About compactors

A plate compactor is a device that is powered by an engine that can vary in power, and that utilizes vibrations as a means to compact asphalt and loose materials, such as sand and gravel. The bottom of these machines will typically have a steel plate. The size of the plate can vary based on the machine. The walk behind models that are available will typically have plates that are between 1.5 and three feet square.

Compactor Manufacturers

Today, there are different compactor options available from quite a few different manufacturers. Some of the manufacturers making the compactors today include Wacker, Bomag, Multiquip, Chicago, SAKAI, and WEN.
