The versatile FP15.40 forward vibratory plate compactor achieves optimal compaction results on a variety of granular materials including sand, gravel and hot-mix asphalt.
Bobcat forward plate compactors offer industry-leading forward movement, great compaction results and less operator fatigue.
Equipped with a durable and efficient Honda engine, the FP15.40 forward plate compactor delivers reliable starts, maximum power and low fuel consumption.
The FP15.40 features a 22-inch base plate that delivers maximum compaction force of 3,372 lbf. (50,000 N).
The compact size and high maneuverability make Bobcat forward plate compactors ideal for compaction work in tight-fitting areas.
Bobcat forward plate compactors are designed to isolate plate vibrations from the operator’s handle, significantly reducing hand-arm vibration and fatigue. The handle also folds for convenient transport and storage.
Easily lift and load the forward plate compactor to and from the jobsite using the convenient, central-point lift bar.
Moving a Bobcat forward plate compactor from one jobsite to another is easy with the optional, toolless transport wheels and central lift bar.
A robust, tubular frame surrounds the engine and durable covers protect key components for reliable performance on the jobsite day after day.
Bobcat forward plate compactors feature a one-piece, cast base plate with no connection points that can weaken over time. Other brands weld or assemble components for their base plates. Bobcat forward plate compactors also feature base plates that are thicker in the rear, where most wear occurs.
Bobcat forward plate compactors feature base plates that are designed to shed dirt and reduce material buildup for greater operator uptime.
Easy access to service points makes maintenance easy and increases your uptime.
Bobcat forward plate compactors are equipped with wear-resistant base plates that are thicker in the rear, where most wear occurs. This means the forward plate compactor, operated under typical working conditions, requires no base plate service during their lifetime.
An optional vibration-activated hour meter monitors work hours to ensure timely maintenance.
Tackle a wide range of applications, including open-area compaction work, trench work and compacting materials in tight spaces.
Control dust or keep the vibratory base plate free of material buildup while compacting asphalt using the standard water tank and sprinkler system. The durable, yet light-weight tank can be removed without the need for tools for convenient refills.
Slip on the optional rubber mat to operate the plate compactor on paving stones without cracking or chipping the stones or other expensive surfaces.
