What is a Compactor?

A compactor is a specialized machine that is used to compact soil or other materials by applying pressure. Compactor machines are typically categorized by size and type, and are used in various applications ranging from construction and paving to recycling and landfill. They are often used to create a smooth, even surface for projects such as parking lots, driveways, pathways, and building foundations.

What Types of Compactors are Available, and What Types of Jobs are They Used for?

At Far West Rents, we offer two types of compactor machines: smooth drum rollers and vibratory plate compactors.

Smooth drum rollers are used primarily for heavier construction jobs such as roads, parking lots, and driveways. They are often used to apply pressure and create a flat, stable surface.

Vibratory plate compactors are typically used for lighter construction projects such as landscaping, patios, walkways, and foundations. They are effective for soil and other materials because they are lighter and easier to maneuver. They are also able to create a more even surface than that of a smooth drum roller.

What Size Compactor Do I Need for My Project?

The size compactor you need for your project will vary depending on the specific job needs. Generally speaking, your compactor capacity should be greater than the area you are working on by at least 20%. Choosing the right size compactor will help you to ensure that the job is accomplished efficiently and effectively. At Far West Rents, we can help you to select a compactor with the best size and force for your particular project near Lincoln, CA.
