The Vibratory Plate Compactor is the perfect tool for artificial grass installation. A properly-executed artificial grass installation includes a compacted sub-base. The sub-base is a vital component of the installation because it is the foundation on which artificial grass is installed. To ensure the best look and performance of the grass, the sub-base must be thoroughly compacted. The Vibratory Plate Compactor makes the tak of sub-base compaction much faster and easier than hand-tamping. This Vibratory Plate Compactor is powered by a Briggs & Stratton 208cc XR Professional engine that produces 6.5 hp.
