How does a plate compactor work?

A plate compactor works by repeatedly vibrating and driving a flat metal plate against soil, sand or other surfaces. This small petrol plate compactor will provide a professional finish for DIY jobs and is ideal on granular sub soils and paving base materials. 

How to use a plate compactor?

As with all Coates Hire equipment and machinery, ease of use is important. Our petrol and diesel plate compactors are designed for safe single-person operation. Controls are located on the plate compactor handle for comfortable walk-behind operation, allowing you to complete major tasks with the minimum of fuss.

Can I use a plate compactor on pavers?

Plate compactors are generally used on the soil and gravel sub-base underneath pavers or other surfacing. Even this small vibrating plate compactor packs a lot of downward force and is not usually used for levelling pavers as they may break under the impact. For compacting and paving work, or other building projects, Coates Hire are here to assist with the right equipment for the best possible hire price. Contact your nearest branch for more advice and inspiration.
