Get more done in less time, with less effort and fewer passes, keeping fuel consumption low - thanks to a full set of productivity features.

Built Tough

Thanks to its reliable design, durable materials and a robust frame, you don't have to worry about damaging the machine, no matter where it is used.

Efficient Engines

Equipped with durable and efficient Honda engines, our range of forward plates provides maximum power while minimizing fuel consumption. The FP20.50 is available with a Honda petrol engine or a Hatz diesel engine - for top performance even in high altitudes.

Hassle-Free Deployment

Thanks to low hand-arm vibration (HAV) levels, the operator's comfort is maximized while additional resource-hogging paperwork is eliminated. Additionally, the handle's foldable design makes plates easy to transport.

Agile and Nimble

Limited access is access enough. Thanks to the handle and grip on the machine frame, the machine can be operated with full control even in confined spaces. The design of the base plate enables consistent results, even on steep grades.

Easy to Transport

The plate's compact size makes it easy to fit into any vehicle. A central, easy-to-grip hook allows you to lift the plate from trenches or load it into a vehicle effortlessly, while robust build ensures that the plate isn't damaged in transit.
