Product Overview


Some may call them wacker plates or whacker plates (see the note below) but these are Fairport Plate Compactors. Designed and built in the UK to be the highest specification and best value for the most demanding markets across the world:

Plate compactors with very low Hand-Arm Vibrations.

Without compromising performance or productivity these plate compactors give long safe usage times so they can help to reduce the overall risk of “Vibration White Finger”. Operator exposure to harmful vibrations has to be limited and should be reduced to a minimum wherever possible. Fairport FPC Plate compactors help employers meet their responsibilities to their workforce with no loss of productivity. By only allowing operators to use Low HAV plate compactors, other equipment such as breakers can be used for a little longer without risking over exposure.

For compaction of soil, sub-bases and asphalt, these plates maintain productivity without exposing operators to excessive harmful vibrations.

Reducing the Hand Arm Vibrations HAVs of a plate compactor without affecting productivity is a challenge only a few manufacturers have mastered. (Doing this at a cost effective price has proved even harder). The engineers and designers who developed the first Low HAVs plate compactors to be widely accepted by Contractors, Utility Companies and Local Authorities have applied additional advances to the Fairport FPC range. Rigorous real life testing and tuning of plate compactor design combining mass dampening and vibration isolation is built in to an all-round winning design.

  • The advantages of a lightweight plate compactor with the features of a heavyweight
  • Very low hand-arm vibration levels without additional weight
  • Double mounted, mass plate anti-vibration system
  • Cost effective design and manufacture bringing LOW HAVs plate compactors to a price competitive with standard machines.
  • Total engine protection frame
  • Optional paving mat and transport wheels available
