    I am cosidering a pave tech 50 compactor. It is 5000 lbs. of force and travels at 90 ft. a minute. Is this to fast to set pavers in the sand? Is the machine reliable ?

    Never used it. I use the Dynapac lf 3820. It works well for base and setting pavers. Youll need to take a few more passes on the base with it then the 5000 lb machine, up front cost savings though. Depends on how many jobs you are doing.
