If you are looking to hire a compactor, come to Alandale Plant Ltd. We have a wide range of compactors for hire.
A compactor is used to reduce the size of material. A plate compactor is used to compress soil, gravel and other material to make it more sturdy and compact.
There are several different models of plate compactors, differing in power, size and operating mechanism. Luckily our friendly staff are well trained in how to operate all of them, and are happy to show you how to use your compactor before you hire it.
A plate compactor will typically use a large plate which is lifted and lowered to flatten and compact the ground beneath it.
You might use a plate compactor to compact soil before laying paving slabs, to smooth out fresh tarmac, or for patching and levelling ground. Although smaller compactors are quite lightweight, they are still very robust. The petrol engines produce low levels of emissions, and are suitable for smaller applications where larger items of machinery could not be used due to size or weight restrictions.
A compactor really is one of those things you only need for a short time over the course of a job, and you won’t need it for every job, so it makes sense to hire one as and when it is required.
Here at Alandale we have over fifteen years’ experience in hiring high quality plant and tools.
Our experienced and fully trained staff will be happy to talk you through your options when it comes to hiring a compactor, giving advice to ensure you have the right tools for the job.
