    I'm looking to buy a used plate compactor and I just saw an add for one. Its a Wacker VPG165A which I don't see listed as a current model on the Wacker site. I haven't looked at the machine yet but it says its in almost new condition, asking price is $1K. Has anyone here used this particular model? Is it any good?

    Looks like it is a diesel that has a 18"X24.5" plate and 3,375 LBS centrifugal force.

    I assumed the "G" in VPG stood for gas. It has a 5.5hp Honda engine. Other than that, I couldn't find any specs online for it. Judging by the plate size, engine hp and weight, I guesstimated it to be about equivelant to a 1550? Could be wrong though.

    Yeah, I missed that. You're right.
