A compactor, also termed as a wacker plate or plate compactor, is a type of construction machine used to apply pressure to soil that reduces air pocks and allows the soil to handle heavier weights on even surfaces. The two main types of compactors are roller compactors and flat plate compactors. Compactors are ideal machines for a range of DIY, residential, or industrial construction, for projects such as driveways or patios. Compactors are and ideal surface preparation tool as they are often used to compact soil in preparation for concrete pouring, footings, and trenches. With compactor operation, the heavy plate on the bottom of the machine rapidly moves up and down to push and level the surface. The combination of pressure force and plate weight force ensures that the soil, sand, or surface packs together, tightly.
