Toro Compaction Equipment?

Anyone have experience with Toro's line of plate compactors and rammers? Looked at the FP3000 the other day and seems well built but can't find real world feedback yet...Info as always is greatly appreciated!

And what's your opinion? I've never used stone either and want to see if now that it's branded with a Toro logo it is still a quality piece of equipment...Or if it was ever quality even as Stone. I've always used Wacker and bomag...

Stone is a good name, reputation in compaction equip. Not nearly as big as the two you mention. It works like any other little plate compactor and to look at it, it is obviously good quality, not cheapo at all. I only use it for flagstone.

Thanks for the feedback...I have a buddy that sells Toro and can get a great price on them so could only go by his word as a salesman. Lol. But they do seem well built. Bomag and Wacker tend to be a little on the pricer side so wanted to look into other options...Glad to know Stone had a good reputation!
