Reversible Asphalt Vibrating Plate

WPU1550Aw – Wacker Neuson’s smallest reversible

The reversible vibratory plate WPU 1550 is the powerful pro for compacting asphalt and interlocking paving stones, as well as the compaction of mixed soils in very confined spaces. With its robust construction means it is perfectly suited for continuous operation in the construction of paths and by horticultural and landscape design professionals, for instance for the compaction of gravelly sand beds of sidewalks, roads and parking lots. Thanks to the integrated transport roller with its unrivaled stability, the WPU 1550 can be maneuvered easily and effortlessly to the precise location, even on hot asphalt.
