Concreting & Compaction Equipment Hire

Vibrating Rollers & Wacker Plate Hire

Vibrating rollers and wacker plates are essential equipment for any construction site where soil compaction is needed. Vibrating rollers are heavy-duty machines that are designed to compact soil and create a flat, even surface. They use a vibrating drum that is pushed over the soil, creating pressure and vibration that compacts the soil. Wacker plates, on the other hand, are smaller, handheld machines that are perfect for compacting smaller areas or hard-to-reach spaces. They use a powerful motor to create high-impact compaction, ensuring that the soil is firmly compacted and ready for construction.

We can deliver a range of vibrating rollers and wacker plates that are perfect for a variety of construction tasks, including roadworks, building foundations, and landscaping. With various sizes and models available, we have the perfect machine for every project. All of our equipment is built to the highest standards, ensuring that they are reliable, safe, and easy to use. Whether you’re a professional contractor or a DIY enthusiast, our vibrating rollers and wacker plates will help you get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Vibrating Rollers & Wacker Plate Hire FAQs

Your Questions, Answered.

There are various types of wacker plates available, including forward plates, reversible plates, and remote-controlled plates. Forward plates move in one direction, while reversible plates can move forward and backwards. Remote-controlled plates can be operated remotely, which is beneficial for compacting in tight or hazardous areas.

When selecting a wacker plate, consider factors such as the compaction force, plate size, weight, engine power, fuel type (petrol or diesel), and the type of surface you'll be working on. It's important to choose a plate that suits the specific requirements of your project.

Wacker plates are designed for use on compactable surfaces such as soil, gravel, sand, and asphalt. They are not suitable for use on hard surfaces like concrete or tiled floors, as they may cause damage.

Yes, a vibrating roller can help level out minor unevenness or bumps in the surface. However, it is important to note that significant irregularities may need to be addressed before using the roller, as excessive variations can affect the compaction results.

The depth to which a wacker plate can effectively compact the material depends on various factors, including the type of material, its moisture content, and the specific machine being used. Generally, wacker plates can compact material up to several inches deep.

Yes, most vibrating rollers allow you to adjust the vibration intensity. This feature enables you to customise the compaction process based on the type of material and thickness of the layer being compacted. Consult the machine's manual for guidance on adjusting the vibration settings.

When using a wacker plate, always wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Ensure the work area is clear of obstacles and personnel. Avoid overexertion and take regular breaks. Never operate the machine on unstable or uneven ground. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and guidelines for safe operation.
