The JCB VMP 8 reversible plate compactor is hydrostatically operated and designed for use on granular and cohesive material. It weighs 80 kg and power is provided by a 3.1 kW Honda engine. Working width is 325 mm and centrifugal force is 16 kN.
There are reversing and stationary features for confined areas and all directional control is lever-operated. The engine is shock-mounted and vibrator bearings are lifetime-lubricated for durability. Added to that is a wear-resistant, high-grade cast damping plate and a roll cage that doubles as a lifting bail.
For operator comfort, specially balanced and isolated guide bars protect hands and arms from excessive vibrations. Finally, there’s a built-in device for attaching a vulcolan paving mat (an optional extra item for compacting paving stones and similar material).
