I have never heard of Multiquip equipment so i cant comment on that but I always tell people get the biggest compactor you can afford. We purchased a compactor that weighs 1300lbs and has centrifugal force of 16,650 lbs last year and it was a great investment. We use it for everything from simple walkways to driveways. A bigger compactor will make you money. When you can compact your base material in half to a quarter of the time as it did before... that money/time saved adds up quick.
One thing to keep in mind, you will always need a machine to load/unload, move around the job site, a compactor that weighs 700lbs... unless your an Olympic weight lifer or something.
