FPR Reversible Plate Compactors

Reversible Plate Compactors give contractors the high productivity and flexibility they need. Compaction with a Reversible plate can be guaranteed to a high standard without costing any more man-hours on the job. A reversible plate compactor can be used effectively and efficiently for compaction of sub-grade (soil) sub-base, MOT (hardcore) and Asphalt (Tarmac) so, on many jobs, no other compaction equipment is required.

Reversible plate compactors ideal and versatile for high compaction efficiency on sand, gravel MOT1 (hardcore) and soil.

Heavyweight compaction available from Reversible Plate Compactors enables fewer passes than standard single direction plate compactors (or normal “wacker” plates). So along with the wide base plates and deeper compaction, reversible plate compactors give higher productivity.

Increased compaction force with smooth transition between forward and reverse travel.

High levels of compaction vibration is delivered from a high efficiency vibrator system. Materials for sub-base and Asphalt are effectively “semi-fluidised” then hammered together. This extreme compaction power is easily and intuitively controlled using a precision hydraulic system. With excellent control, high outputs and comfortable operation the Fairport Reversible Plate Compactors are a No.1 hit with all operators.
