13 Inch, Forward Plate Compactor, 2400 lb. Compaction Force, FP10.33

Bobcat 13 inch forward plate compactor delivers forward movement to your door to start asphalt patching or preparing your sub-base driveway immediately. In a stationary position or while advancing across the surface, the machine’s steel plate vibrates rapidly, moving particles below closer together and eliminating air pockets for a tight compaction. Powered by a durable and efficient Honda engine for reliable starts, maximum power and low fuel consumption. Used in a wide range of applications, including open area soil and asphalt compaction, trench work, and compaction in tight spaces with 2360 pounds compaction force at 4689 square feet per hour.

  • Forward design: Bobcat forward plates are designed for industry-leading forward movement for great compaction results and less operator fatigue.
  • Water tank and sprinkler system: Control dust or keep the vibratory base plate free of material buildup while compacting asphalt using the fixed water tank and sprinkler system.  The durable, yet light-weight tank can be removed without the need for tools for convenient refills.
  • Honda engine: Bobcat forward plate compactors feature durable and efficient Honda engines for reliable starts, maximum power and low fuel consumption.
  • Casted, one-piece plates: 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.
  • Minimal hand-arm vibration: Bobcat forward plates 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.
  • Durable frame: A robust, tubular frame surrounds the engine and durable covers protect key components for reliable performance on the jobsite day after day.
  • Optimum versatility: Tackle a wide range of applications, including open-area compaction work, trench work and compacting materials in tight spaces.
  • Durable vibratory base plates: Bobcat forward plate compactors feature base plates that are thicker in the rear, where most wear occurs.
