In the past I have always rented a compactor when I put in a retaining wall or done pavers. But now that I am getting alot more jobs for this type of work, I think it would be more cost effective to just buy one. The only one I have ever used from the rental company is the Wacker. I want to know what compactor is going to give me the most bang for my buck. What do you guys use, and how much do they run$ ?
