Call some rental yards. Picasso recommended that route for me, and it paid off. Two days ago I bought a Mikasa for a little less than $500.00. It is about for 3 years old and in perfect running condition.

Our Wacker BU3050 (7000 cf) reversibles cost $5,500 each. The mercedes of the plate compacting world.
