Packer Brothers compactor?

Plenty of them on ebay and really cheap. Are they any good?

Dido on the Wacker. You get what you pay for. It's like comparing your 61" Scag to a Home Depot Ride-on. Their "really cheap" compared to your Scag.

I agree, planning on a 3050 wacker. It should serve my needs quite well.

I have the 3050A. As I'm sure you already know, the "A" stands for a Honda engine. It's a few hundred bucks more, but in my opinion, well worth it. Very good machine. Before you buy new, check your local rental places for a used one. A compactor of this size doesn't go out to the job sites as much as other equipment. The hours on them are usually low even after being in service for a year or two. If it's a reputable rental place they more than likely take better care of their equipment (checking and changing oil, filters, etc.) than most of us contractors. Best of luck with your purchase.

I have called every rental yard around. Nobody has any plates for sale.
