    I'm looking for a plate compactor, Wacker 1550 or similar. There is a chance I will just pick up a new one, but for the amount of use it will get with our crew I'm sure a used one will be fine. Shoot me a PM and let me know what you have!

    if you have a home depot rental store around go there. i got mine for 400 bucks and it looked brand new. only had been rented about 50 times in three years.

    Sweet! I'll give that a try as well. I know the local guy I rent some speciality things from would love to sell me a rental unit....for about $50.00 less than retail......yeah...that's not going to happen...

    home depot sells them every three years no matter how many hours are on them. i waited for mine to come up. and a dirty little trick if you dont want to wait..... just say it was stolen and they will give you a heavily deprecated price you have to pay. if you like it buy it if you dont say "uppps i found it"
