    Do you use on on patios or is it overkill and you would just use it on drives ?

    We use it on all base applications other than driveways. It would work for driveways but you need to compact at smaller lifts and it just takes longer. For driveways we would rent the dpu6065 which is a 1,100 lb unit. This one shakes the foundation of the house.

    I'm sure it does. I don't want overkill I just want to upgrade wacker 1550. I am thinking of getting the 2540 which had force of 5625# .
