Heavy-duty design. Weighs 1100 lbs.
Our brand-new Dynapac LG500 offers a heavy-duty reversible plate with high compaction performance. A powerful 11 HP diesel engine makes the LG500 an economical alternative to heavy vibratory rollers. The wide base plate is designed for fast compaction of soil and stone material on large surfaces, and also for building foundations and backfill against supporting walls.
This plate compactor moves at a rate of 78 feet per minute, weighs in around 1100 pounds, and features a plate size of 29.5” by 35.5”.
Centrifugal force: 22,031 lbf
Operating width: 34.3”
Max forward speed: 98.4 feet/minute
Surface capacity: 14,000 foot square per hour maximum
Maximum slope of operation: 25%
The biggest plate compactor made for general use – hits with the same force as a 10 tonne ride-on roller. So, works for compaction of fill up to 18” deep. Please be careful working near structures!

Weighs 135 lbs.
Another great tool for compacting in tight areas, our Mikasa and MBW-brand Jumping Jack compactors weigh 135 lbs and feature a shoe size of 11” × 13”. Two models to choose from.
Light-duty. Models weigh 130 lbs.
These light-duty plate compactors have bases that are roughly 13” × 20”, and they weigh 130 lbs. These compact plate tampers are great for small jobs or tight areas, such as around retaining walls.
We also carry rubber mats that bolt on to the bottom of our small plate compactors. Available for a small charge, these mats are ideal for tamping directly on top of paving stones.
Medium-duty. Weighs 200 lbs.
Our medium-duty gas plate compactors have a base of 19” × 22” and weigh a solid 200 lbs – this unit is our most popular plate compactor.
Force: 8,318 lbf
Grab a chain, and one of our kubota mini-excavators and you have a marriage of compaction and digging machinery made to get-the-job-done…quickly.
A favorite for many of our customers – a really nice mid-sized plate compactor for medium size job-sites. Both homeowners and contractors alike will appreciate the speed at which this will tackle most residential jobs. This plate is at home building the base for pavingstone patios, driveways, prepping for concrete pours, and also back-filling trenches. With the reversible function this plate can actually be easier and more efficient to use than our 220# plates in many jobsite conditions.
A 10” × 10” steel plate affixed to the end of a 4’ wooden pole. Equally great for light-duty tamping and working on your biceps.
Available with a variety of attachments.
The Thunderbolt’s sliding handle provides force at the base of the unit without having to lift the entire tool, saving on labour. 19lbs; 5” × 5” plate.
