Compacting Equipment

Looking for a 400 or 300 kg reversible plate compactor to roll down some AP20 on the driveway or yard. Perhaps it’s getting those pavers in the garden, and a little 60kg plate compactor will just compact down that crusher dust.

Our rollers and compactors expel air from a soil mass, and so achieve a high density. Smooth-wheel rollers are best for gravels, sands, and gravels-and-clay soils with reasonably high moisture contents. If you have recently new lawns then our 300 kg reversible roller is ideal for pushing down any small stones or little wheel ruts that are still present on the top, it can be vibrating or not.

Jumping jack or trench compactors are perfect for those narrow deep trenches and ensuring once finished that you reduce the risk of the ground sinking down later and making a mess especially if it’s a lawn. There is no single compactor that will do all things in all applications. Each type has a definite material and operating range on which it is most economical.

By coming in and seeing us, and choose the most suitable machine will complete the work most economically and efficiently due to reduced passes, reduced fuel use and less working time.
