Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eric Well worth the $!
I basically purchased this compactor to do an entry project with four landings and a walkway. As you can imagine renting one would have been costly as I am just working on this project nights and weekends after working. So I took a chance on this after reading the reviews and for the price I am 100% satisfied! I have rented compactors before and this one does the same job. It is heavy , as the other reviews say, not unmanageable at all though. Overall worth every penny, I have used it ten different days and it always fires up first pull. Very happy I purchased instead of renting as it has paid for itself and then some and allows me to work at my own pace!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ursthenurse Sad purchase
Easy to assemble however that was the end of any ease. Starting was difficult then when it was running it was not vibrating fast enough it needed to be pushed and dragged to get it yo move, I was do disappointed I had to rent one in order to complete my job at the lake house. Another steal is the return time frame starts as soon as you make the purchase, for myself I purchased online waited 9 days for delivery to a store could not pick it up for 2 days my time to use it was not for another week as I was taking one week off to do this job now I am at 18/19 days 2 days of struggles so buyer beware
If anyone wants to buy this cheap from me ( hardly used) I would take 50 % of what I paid

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yankeeman great purchase
The tamper was very easy to assemble and has been put to use one time already. I ordered it online and picked it up in store, which was very convenient. It arrived in store on exactly the day it was promised. I would not hesitate to order other items this way, and would recommend it to others.

Great unit. Started up on first pull. It's been performing flawlessly for the past two weeks I have owned it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ggoose Works well
Only have about an hour on the machine so far, but it is working as advertised. Starts on the first or second pull when cold. Easy to control and not excessively loud. Does a good job compacting wet 3/4-, leaving a solid, well compacted surface. Use a funnel to add the motor oil or you'll likely spill a lot of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYhomeowner Quality piece for the price.
I had a big project that had to be completed in stages, and renting a compactor multiple times (along with travel to and from) was going to be spendy. Did some research and opted to purchase instead. Right out of the crate, you could tell this was a quality piece. Added oil, gas, and bolted the handle (handle is partially assembled for shipping) and 5 minutes later, it fired on the first pull. It is heavy, so its a 2 man job to move and place, but it has 4 handles making it easy to lift. The protector (roll cage?) has a tab for lifting from 1 point (like with a tractor). The hole was a little small for my chain hook, but I drilled it out with a step drill and that's resolved. Only flaw is the clearance between the cage and the gas cap is a little tight, making it a little cumbersome to fuel. As far as compacting, it does very well. Excellent piece for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Regina Getting the job done
We needed a compactor to use while making our back yard patio. Since we are working a little at a time (nights and weekends) renting one would have been more expensive then buying. This machine is great. Starts on the first try every time. Affordable. Gets the job done
