Depends on the comapction force you are looking for and the jobs you plan on doing. To answer your question they are both good products. If I was buying new I would go for the best price. Times are tough so oyu can get some good deals off of craigslist and some rental houses.

assuming each is sold by a local dealer (parts can be hard to get if not) then buy what ever has the better price.

In that range your mostly looking for a quality engine I prefer honda engines when i can get them on equipment but you pay a little more.

I can get a smaller Wacker reversible with a 15" plate for around $4K. That's the way I would go.

There is Bomag on Craigslist in Southcounty for $500 but it is a 20" plate I assume. I'm not sure where in MO you are.
