Well, like the saying goes "you get what you pay for". Buy a wacker or bomag, spend the 6 or 7 grand and it'll last forever. One of my guys buys his own equipment and usually buys the cheap stuff, its the worst kind of equipment to work with. Just little things like where to pick it up from makes a big difference.

I own a rental yard and have tried many different types and brands of plate compactors and reversibles to find the best for the price, I have had bad luck with Northern tool and the really cheap ones on ebay.
i have had good luck with Bomag and PackerBrothers. I feel that packerbrothers is the best buy for the money because you buy direct i have liked the quality. Bomag has also been good to me but i have pretty much switch to PackerBrothers because simlar quality but prices are lower and customer service has been a good experience
