    Hey guys,
    I have found a Wacker walk behind plate compactor (DPU100-70) that is rated at 22,000 lbs of force for a crazy low price. i can't find any dimensions on it..does anyone happen to know what the physical size is and is there any reason not to get one that big...it weighs 1500 lbs.

    I just bought a 10k Reversible Plate...one of the best investments I have ever made. The time saved over smaller units is unbelievable. I bought a Multiquip. I have used a similar Wacker from my local rent company, maybe the same size unit and it was a great piece. You can really raise your lifts quick.

    Mine is a little smaller at 7k force jut I definitely agree the larger machine is worth it. My wacker is the largest unit available with Dolly wheels on the rear. Its easier than having to use a machine every time
