Marshalltown, an industry-leader in concrete tools and equipment, announced the release of their new Vibratory Plate Compactor. This is the latest addition in the growing line of Marshalltown concrete equipment. It produces over 3800 lbs. of centrifugal force compared to leading competitors that typically sit between 3000 and 3500 lbs. This results in more compaction force and faster traveling speed, helping contractors save valuable time over the course of a year.
The Vibratory Plate Compactor features a folding handle that locks in place and also two lower handles for multiple lifting points. It also comes with a throttle lever located on the handle and a 3-year warranty.
“Our primary goal for this project was to save contractors time,” said Jim Bowie, Senior Product Manager on the project. “We found that by creating more centrifugal force, it not only produced more compaction force, but it also helped the Plate Compactor travel faster. We tested our design against leading competitors and found ours was consistently faster across granular fill materials.”
The Marshalltown Vibratory Plate Compactor is available on marshalltown.com and in select retailers across the country.
