Which compactor for building a new driveway?
Nick Coulson
For a home driveway, you can use an 80-kilogram machine. But for professional applications, the 100-kilogram ABLE C100 is a better choice because it offers greater versatility and depth.
What are the key differences between 68 kilograms and 100-kilogram compactor
Nick Coulson
The most notable differences are in the plate size and compaction depth. With a 68 kilogram compactor, you'll get a compaction depth of about 200 millimetres, as compared to 300 millimetres for the 100-kilogram version. Depending on your required compaction depth, the job can take significantly longer using the 60-kilogram compactor.
Which tamper rammer should I use to compact trenches and drains?
Nick Coulson
When compacting trenches, drains, and cabling, you'll find the tamper rammer RM75GX100 most suitable.
Which compactor is best for foundations?

For foundations, you should choose a compactor of at the very least, 160 kilograms. We recommend the ABLE C160DSL dirt compactor for sale with hydraulic reverse. It offers a good compaction depth for this purpose.  Which machine is best suited to do small-scale landscaping projects? For small compacting jobs, the 60-kilogram ABLE C60 compactor is the most appropriate choice.

Nick Coulson
In this case, your needs will depend on the size of the house pads and the required compaction depth. We recommend choosing either a 160-kilogram compactor or a 450-kilogram reversible compactor.
Which should I use with turf works?
Nick Coulson
For turf works, you'll most likely need to use a 60-kilogram ABLE C60 or 100-kilogram ABLE C100. Both of these compactors have the appropriate compaction depth. They are also easy to carry and lift.  
Can a plate compactor reverse?
Nick Coulson
Reversible compactors can go in both forward and reverse, some can also hover. Reversible compactors are normally high performance/heavy-duty plate compactors like our C160DSL and are often used for deeper depth compaction. Compactors that can reverse has many uses, like compacting soil before paving a plate compactor is perfect for gravel, loose stone and sand during road or driveway paving. The best use of a plate compactor is for small patches of fresh asphalt or to tighten up dirt in a utility trench. A Plate compactor will definitely increase productivity. Without a plate, compactor to compact soil and push out air the risk of future settling is very high.
What is a Plate Compactor?
Nick Coulson
A plate compactor or rammer tamper is an indispensable piece of construction equipment that is used to compress different types of sand, soil, gravel, and bedding in paving and bricks.

Which plate compactor is best for paving?
Nick Coulson
The answer to this question depends on how the paving will be used. If vehicles will be driven over or parked on the paving, you'll need a 100 kilogram ABLE C100 or C100CM compactor at the minimum. If the pathway is not set for vehicle use, you can use a 68 kilogram ABLE C60 plate compactor.
