Ok guys, I need a little input from those of you out there who do site work and/or use a reversible plate compactor for back fill purposes.

Starting to gear up for some larger site work projects and I'm looking at what options there are out there for a reversible plate compactor in the 10k-14k compaction force classes.

Thanks!
Andrew

Well we have a Weber CR8, that does 16,650lbs of centrifugal force.

The CR7 or CR6 are a little smaller and might be what your looking for. Weber is top of the line, we really like ours. But big $$$. I usually tell people if your getting a good compactor expect to pay about $1 a lb of centrifugal force, if buying new. We use it for hardscaping. We got ours from Reliable Equipment in Manchester, NH.

Wacker Neuson is a quality product, same with Mikasa. I own both and have never had a problem.

this would be a good one for the price

just keep checking ebay, i see a lot of demo's or refurbished newer stuff going pretty cheap on there that you would pay 8-10 for from a dealer. A 5045 would be a good size for you and if you do anything indoors the diesel would be better for air quality. I scooped up a 3545 for $500 at an action.

Thanks Prodirt- I've started to keep an eye out for some good units and that one right there does seem to fit the bill.
