When you see the bright blue of a compactor, you probably recognize that it's a Weber. The name is pretty well known in the US but actually the products are made in Germany. They make Rammers, Forward & Reversible Compactors.
When building a wall, sidewalk , or patio, compaction is involved. Now the biggest question comes into play...what kind of compactor do I want or need? This really all depends on your job site & the type of work that you do.
- The CF Series (Forwards) have a compaction force of 2,400-4,500lbs.
- The CR Series (Reversible) have a compaction force of 4,500-27,000 lbs.
- Both can come with optional pad & wheel kits (which are recommended)
- 2 year warranty
A neat feature on the heavier Reversibles is the COMPATROL option. It is the first continuous compaction control system where the vibration of the base plate is increased or decreased based on the soil conditions. The results are displayed on the control panel and tell you when optimal compaction is reached. This allows for less reworking of an area with no over compaction.
