Recommended reversible compactors from 200 to 400 kg

At soil compactors are a hot topic. We get many queries from you, which compactor to choose, what engine, what weight and what else to pay attention to? In today's article, we will try to show you where the compactors from 200 to 400 kg will work best, and we will present the most-bought models in this weight range.

Where is the compactor used up to 400kg?

Compactors up to 400 kg are machines that have many applications. Optimal weight allows for compaction of the anti-frost layer, preparation of substructures for cobblestones, construction of roads, parking lots and paths. In this weight range we deal with reversible vibratory plates, which enable work in two directions. The greater weight and size of the plate also allows you to compact a large area in less time. There are thickeners on the market equipped with a gasoline and diesel engine. Often, the choice of engine is individual customer preferences. Gasoline engines usually have good performance, but their service life is simply shorter. Diesel engines have a much longer service life and high efficiency.
