    First Pull every time
    Invested in this machine for a 750 sqft patio project and it's doing a great job. $100 cheaper than the Harbor Freight model. Yes my muffler guard rattled right off too, but who cares? toss it and keep going. Wheels tend to pop off their holder when you yank it backwards, so I took the wheels right off, no big. Runs great, doing what it's intended to do that's all I care about.

        Wheels are great. I have used it 4 times four two separate projects and it starts up right away. Easy putting together but I was misting a bolt to lock the speed knob to the handle. Other than that it works great for the price.

            It did all that I needed it to do . I built a 50 ft. Retaining wall that was 6 tall and compacted the soils/crushed rocks every 6”. The machine started easy and compacted very well. Yes I would buy it again.

                    Several projects needed for purchasing this great compactor. It's already paid for itself in rental charges! Easy to put together, straightforward to use.

                            Great Compactor
                            Very easy to use and fired up the first pull. Be sure to use Loctite on the 2 screws for the cover otherwise they will vibrate loose within a few minutes.

                                I was a little apprehensive about the OEM Engine, but it has turned out to be extremely reliable and always starts on the first pull, for the price it is an unbeatable compactor

                                          Plate Compactor
                                          Started right up, first pull. light weight easy to maneuver. Only thing I didn't care for with this unit is the spring loaded handle, I ended up putting a few zip ties around it to manage the maneuverability of the unit. It tends to spring forward while in operation. Other then that does the job for small jobs.

                                            I purchased the Yardmax 2500. I’m building a 36’ by 36’ shop, I checked with the local rental agency on what the price was per day. I was told around $60 per day, it just made since to purchase a compactor instead of renting ever time I needed it. So I shopped around for price, and force. I have been extremely happy with both. It starts up every time I need it, It is very easy to operate, I love the wheels, they make it so easy to move around. If you are shopping for a Compactor you will not go wrong with this unit.
