FAQs
What compaction equipment should I use for granular or cohesive soil?

Rammers are ideal for high-clay or high-silt (cohesive) soil and high-moisture soil. They deliver thousands of pounds of impact force to the soil and a degree of vibration, compacting wet or dry soil. Plate compactors and ride-on rollers work best on granular soils such as gravel and sand.

What type of engine oil do I need for a plate compactor?

SAE 30, 10/30 or 10/40 will work well in the engine of gas/petrol-powered plate compactors. For diesel engines, use 15/40 oil for maximum productivity. Contact United Rentals for more information about the care and use of our plate compactors.

When should I use a drum roller instead of a plate compactor?

Drum rollers are heavy-duty compactors you drive across large areas such as parking lots or entire construction sites. Plate compactors are ideal for smaller sites and narrow work areas such as trenches and for granular soil. They are not ride-on rollers but are operated on foot. Single or double drum rollers can handle granular and more cohesive soils such as silt or clay.
