Vibrating Paving Compactor
The team at Equipment Synergy International, USA, believes it has taken hardscape compaction into a new direction with its EVPC120. This vibratory plate is a departure from the standard steel plate with an optional bolt on neoprene pad. With its four rubber coated rollers, it is a dedicated compactor for that last hardscape application, setting the pavement tiles and pavers. The individually replaceable rubber coated rollers allow unlimited maneuverability, and won’t scratch, mark or chip the pavers.
No longer is the contractor spending countless man hours cleaning up excess sand to protect the pavers. With its 26” (665 mm) square base plate, operating weight of 275 lbs (124 kg) and compaction force of twenty three hundred lbs. This vibratory plate, is the ultimate labor saver. Designed with high production jobsites in mind, the rubber rollers allow the operator unmatched travel speed, precise turning, and the ability to go backwards just by rolling the compactor backwards. It is powered by a time proven GX160 Honda or EX17 Subaru gasoline engine.
A folding steel handle allows for a more compact unit during storage, and the handle mounted throttle control means no fumbling for the throttle at the most inopportune times. Initially introduced mid 2014 on a limited basis the response from the hardscape professionals have been stronger than expected.
