I personally like Mikasa better than Wacker, I first got turned onto the mikasa from our local rental shops, they say that they will last twice as long as Wackers.
Mikasa/multi-quip is all we use and love em.
That looks like a really good deal, if you are in the market, I would jump on it.
Check out the 7800lb and the 9900lb machines also on the page you listed.
Look at the last paragraph in the description, It talks a little about maintenance costs WORLDWIDE!!
The 9900 pound machine is what I call a compactor, With that machine you could take the word "lift" out of your hardscaping vocabulary!!!
You have to watch those along foundations ! You can crack them !! What is the difference of a "hydraulic" compactor ?
i have always liked Mikasa/multi-quip. i saw the 7000# machine on ebay.
wish i had the money to spend right now to buy it, hmmmmmmm....... where is that credit card with 0% until 08'?
I know McKee that is the 1 I saw. If it goes for 2k what a steal ! Is 7K# what ICPI is calling for now ? I am going to have to call them tomorrow. I hate to put any money at the start of the season already. Everytime u turn @ it's another toy to buy
I am not sure. when i took the class it was 4000#. i know that it has changed. i wanted to buy a bigger plate this year anyway. i know once the season starts and i have some extra money to spend i won't be able to find anything close to some of the deals i have seen on ebay lately.
I really want to buy a larger compactor, 7k or larger, asap as soon as this season gets going. I also need to get a jumping jack.
For the guys here with large compactors, did you buy them new or used? I know earth wood and turf got his on ebay, but what about the rest of you?
WHat compactor are you running now McKee ?
ICPI says 4000-5000 for pavers.
7000 + for base.
