A big plate compactor in a little package

The FC140-B Forward Plate Compactor has a small footprint but it sure does pack a big punch. This walk-behind forward plate compactor is small enough to easily transport and can get into the tight corners, narrow trenches, or just about any other constricted space in our back yard or work site.

With a compaction force of nearly 2,400 pounds of compaction force per square foot and 5,600 vibrations per minute, the FC140-B is the ideal compactor for landscaping projects, setting brick and stones for sidewalks and patios, and prepping narrow trenches.

Powered by a 5 HP Briggs 4-stroke gas engine and equipped with a 20" x 14" base plate, this plate compactor can compact soil and materials up to 8" deep and cover up to 4,800 square feet per hour.

The heavy-duty clutch automatically disengages the vibrator unit in low idle.

The FC140-B is designed for easy transportation, featuring a foldable handlebar and welded handle grip on the front. With the handle folded down, the unit stands just 21" tall.
