How to choose the right Plate Compactor for the job

MEIWA has a large range of small construction equipment. A small plate compactor offers you a convenient and reliable tool for small to medium-scale projects. If you’re wondering how our plate compactors match your requirements, here are some factors to consider:

Plate compactors can be broadly categorized into single-plates and reversible plates. A single-plate compactor only moves in a forward direction and is the popular choice for smaller jobs such as roading repairs, driveways, landscaping, drain laying and so on. Reversible plate compactors move in forward and reverse directions; reversible plate compactors are used for compacting sub-bases or achieving deep depth compaction.

The shape and size of the plate affects compaction. The curved plate makes it easy to turn the compactor and does not gouge the material being compacted. The dimensions of the plate are key to working in tight places.

Plate compactors that come with a water tank are recommended for Asphalt compaction. A small soil compactor with this feature will make the process easier. The water acts as a barrier between the hot asphalt and cold compaction plate, removing the risk that the plate will adhere to the asphalt.
