The Right Machinery for Your Soil Compaction Needs

A soil compactor is an essential piece of equipment for increasing soil density and reducing soil settlement. Well-compacted soil has a greater load-bearing capacity and provides greater stability for sidewalks, driveways, homes, commercial buildings, and other structures. There are a variety of soil compaction machines available today, and it’s important to choose the one that’s right for your project. When trying to decide between a vibratory plate and a rammer, you’ll need to consider the size, location, and longevity of the project, as well as many other factors.

Rent a Vibratory Plate Compactor in Los Angeles

Resembling a push mower, vibratory plate compactors utilize a heavy steel plate on the base of the machine. The plate, powered by gasoline or diesel, rapidly strikes the ground with tremendous force to compact the soil. These machines come in various sizes and styles to meet your specific needs.

Vibratory plate compactors are best for:

  • Granular soil – Looser soils that consist of sand, silt, and gravel can be compacted by a vibratory plate in dry or wet conditions. This type of soil has no cohesive strength but responds well to the high vibrations of a vibratory plate.
  • Larger areas – Vibratory plate compactors are designed to work well for larger, flat areas. Whether you are compacting soil in a driveway or parking lot, this type of machine is perfect for the job. The wider plate size allows for more uniform layers.

Rammer Compactors for Rent in LA

Rammers are known for being lightweight and portable. Having a sleek body, these compaction machines are easy to maneuver and great for accessing hard to reach places. The smaller, more focused plate allows for deeper compaction, sufficiently compacting the soil without the need for numerous passes. They can be especially beneficial for holes and deep trenches.

Rammer compactors are best for:

  • Cohesive soil – Soil with high clay content and moisture generally requires the use of a rammer to achieve optimal compaction. The machine’s smaller plate size allows for more focused and direct impact.
  • Tight spots – The compact shape of a rammer allows ease of access to smaller areas where it’s difficult to maneuver vibratory plate compactors. The rammer compacts the soil in a more concentrated manner, which allows for filling more soil in each layer.
