MOVE FORWARD AND GET THE JOB DONE.

Introducing the new Forward plate compactors that achieve optimal compaction of granular materials including sand, gravel and asphalt.

Forward Plate Compactors

Bobcat® forward plate compactors are designed for industry-leading forward movement for great compaction results and less operator fatigue.

These versatile machines excel on a variety of jobsites - both large and confined - as well as a wide range of applications, including asphalt and paving, pipeline trench construction and landscaping.

Equipped with durable and efficient Honda engines, Bobcat forward plates provide maximum power while minimizing fuel consumption. Our line of durable forward plate compactors features three models - FP10.33, FP15.40 and FP15.50 - with varying plate sizes and compaction forces.

Control dust or keep the vibratory base plate free of material buildup while compacting asphalt using the fixed water tank and sprinkler system (standard equipment on the FP10.33). Quickly attach the toolless mat, an option available with models FP15.40 and FP15.50, to operate the plate compactor on paving stones without cracking or chipping the surface.
