Change Plate Compactor Direction With a Flip of the Handlebar

When walking behind the FC205-B65 plate compactor, you can reverse your direction by simply flipping the handlebar to the opposing position. This means that when you approach the edge of an area you are compacting, you can swing the handle to the opposite side of the machine, re-position yourself behind the handle, and begin pushing the compactor in the opposite direction.

In addition to this convenient feature, the FC205-B65 delivers 4,451 pounds of compaction force per square foot and 7,000 vibrations per minute, providing you with the power you need for almost any compacting task including landscaping, sidewalks, patios, and trenches.

Powered by a Briggs XR950 6.5 HP 4-stroke gas engine and equipped with an 18" x 24" base plate, this walk-behind compactor can easily compact soil and materials up to 12" deep and cover up to 8,300 square feet per hour.

Four welded handles on each corner of the machine make it easy to lift the machine onto a trailer for transport to and from the job site.
