FAQs About Compaction Equipment for Sale

How do I know if a piece of compaction equipment is right for me?

  • It’s important to consider the type of material you’ll be compacting, the size of the area and the capabilities of your team before purchasing a compaction machine. Walk-behind compactors and rammers are ideal for smaller areas and light-duty compaction; the vibration can cause strain for the operator with prolonged use. For large areas and heavy-duty compaction, ride-on rollers reduce strain on the operator and can compact large areas more efficiently than smaller models.

What are the benefits of buying used compaction equipment?

  • Used compaction equipment is of great value because it has been serviced and maintained by our experts. This means you can avoid costly repairs and get more use out of your machine over its lifetime.

What conditions should I consider before buying a piece of compaction equipment?

  • The type of material you’ll be compacting, the size of the area and the capabilities of your team should all be considered before making a purchase. If you’re compacting sand, soil or gravel, a single drum roller will do the trick. If you’re working with asphalt, concrete or other hard surfaces, you’ll need a machine with a plate compactor. And finally, consider how much space is available to operate on.
