Depending on your specific requirements, this will determine the type of compactor you require. Coming in varying shapes and sizes to accommodate different applications, material types and the desired depth of compaction, one design may be better suited over another. Luckily, iSeekplant has an extensive range of compactors available through our immense rental database.
Utilising static force and hydraulics, or vibratory force to reduce the size of soil and a number of other materials, compactors are used for a number of purposes all across the country. With access to an extensive network of compactor hire services in Adelaide and throughout Australia, we’ll have no trouble helping you find the right provider.
Compactors that rely on static force to operate use padded, or smooth rollers to actually knead the earth to improve compaction. While this option will be effective for compacting materials on a surface level, it will not be able to compact the deeper materials. In situations such as these, you would be better suited to use a vibratory force compactor.
This method allows the vibratory force to impact the earth rapidly, reaching much deeper levels below the ground. There are various compactor hire services that offer compactors with a full plate under the machine’s vibration component, producing a much heavier downward force.
If your project requires a specific type of compactor and you’re unsure of where to begin your search, our database can help narrow down the choices. Search by your area and allow our easy to use interface bring up the most viable candidates based on your requirements. From there you will be able to search each service’s profile and website to read everything you’ll need to know prior to making your decision.
If you’re unfamiliar with the compactor styles, but know what you’ll need it for, let us find you some quotes instead. We have the best knowledge of our directory after all and will be able to come back to you with the three best results based on your needs.
