Plate Compactors


Master Hire’s plate compactors are ideal for compacting dirt, crusher dust or decomposed granite. This unit vibrates helping settle and compact the small granules of rock or dirt. A small amount of water applied to the ground can help reduce dust and aid in the compaction process. The vibrating plates are small enough to be transported on the back of a ute or in a trailer. At least two people are required to lift this unit by hand. Other features of these small vibrating plates include:

  • A powerful easy to start diesel or petrol engine
  • A central lifting point and four carry handles
  • Can be used on roadbase or asphalt
  • Easy to operate

We also have smaller light weight units available with an optional rubber mat. The heavy-duty rubber mat mounted underneath the unit allows you to compact on top of pavers without damaging them.
