The Plate Compactor models DPU4545Hech, DPU6555Hech, and DPU80r are not only powerful for doing faster compaction, but are also capable of informing the operator when optimal compaction is achieved on a particular surface, leading to saved time, fuel and effort.
According to the company, contractors can rely on these reversible plates for heavy-duty applications. The vibratory plates are guided precisely with little effort, while simultaneously maintaining operating comfort due to low or zero hand-arm vibration. There is therefore no time limit for operating these machines on European job sites.
The mid-range reversible plate compactors powered by Hatz and Yanmar diesel engines, generate 40kN (4.0Ton), 45kN (4.5Ton) and 65kN(6.5Ton) of centrifugal force. These all-round versatile plates are suitable for all job sites that place high demands on the machines’ performance. Other outstanding characteristics are higher operator comfort and a long service life. The plates are suited for compacting back-fill and sub bases when constructing roads, paths, and parking lots. The control handle makes the plate compactor simple and safe to operate. With easy shifting of the handle, the operator can infinitely vary the speed and switch directions, or halt the machine for stationary compaction.
The Wacker Neuson DPU80r is a powerful vibratory plate, powered by a multi cylinder diesel engine. The machine is remotely controlled, compact, and highly maneuverable with forward, reverse, left and right movements. It generates 80kN (8.0 ton) of centrifugal force and is designed for use in confined spaces and for trench compaction.
Fitted with a line-of sight infrared remote control, the operator is safely isolated from the machine’s vibration, noise, exhaust emission and dust. The infrared remote control provides maximum safety to reduce the risk of injury by stopping the movement if the user comes too close to the machine or loses sight of the machine, thus enhancing safety.
Uses of Compatec Technology: The Compatec control panel is attached to the rear protective hood within the operator’s line of sight. Eight LEDs display the relative compaction progress by progressively lighting up, depending on the achieved compaction. When the number of illuminated LEDs no longer increase, it signals that no further compaction can be achieved. The operator can therefore finish the work and avoid unnecessary passes or over-compaction of the soil.
