    Pads work great! I have been called to many of "other" jobs, where there was nothing used between the plate and paver, you can easily see the difference. We have Wacker BU3050 reversible plates ($5500 each) with pads from wacker for their plates. We take them on and off when needed, no big deal. I think they were $700 each, but worth every penny.

    I was going to order a factory Bomag pad but about choked on the price, the Pavetech was very cheap compared and I think it's worked well.

    Yeah, I choked too, but I was able to buy it when I bought my machines, so I got a better deal on them, if you know what I mean.

    Hey Guys, I've been using rubber car mats attached to the plate with nylon rope, never had any reason to complain- other than the money i kept in my pocket!
