Wacker Neuson VP 1550A 23" x 19.5" Vibratory Soil Plate

Wacker has consolidated production and implemented a new design for the VP Series. The new design includes a new handle among other minor aesthetic and internal changes.

  • Designed for compaction in confined areas of granular soil in narrow trenches
  • Ideal for curbs, gutters, around tanks, forms, columns, footings, guard railings, drainage ditches, gas and sewer works and building construction
  • Special contoured running surfaces and rounded edges provide maximum performance and maneuverability
  • Completely enclosed belt protected by a lightweight belt guard for reduced wear and minimal service
  • Newly designed “low-vibration” guide handle greatly improves operator comfort and minimizes operator fatigue
  • Heavy-duty shock mounts on engine console dampen vibrations thereby reducing wear on the components
  • Exciter bearing design requires minimal maintenance for improved productivity
  • Single direction plate compactor gas powered
  • Collapsible handle for compact transport
  • Ergonomically designed lifting handles offer easier loading and unloading for operator during transport

Works great!

by - verified purchaser
My new plate compactor was delivered 4 days after ordering on line. I used it the next day. The product needs no review because they are the best and my experience ordering from contractors direct could not have been any easier!
