Description

The Wacker Neuson BPU5545A Reversible Plate Compactor #5100009658 has high compaction force combined with fast forward and reverse travel means the BPU 5545A achieves great productivity. It is an all-around versatile plate for all job sites that place high demands on the machine’s performance potential. Its other outstanding characteristics are high operator comfort and a long service life. It is perfectly suited for the compaction of building back-fill, and of frost and sub bases when constructing roads, paths and parking lots. The 69 Hz frequency makes the BPU 5545A suitable for all purposes and compacts even medium-weight and heavy interlocking paving stone reliably. Infinitely variable forward and reverse operation including spot compaction for easy maneuverability. Ideal for trenches and large spaces.

We stock 5 compaction mfgs, feel free to call for options

We always welcome phone calls to double check the mfg’s lead time and or quicker shipping options from Patriot’s stock.

  • The innovative guide handle provides for very low hand-arm vibration and optimizes the user-friendliness.
  • The BPU 5545A is equipped with a recoil starter. Different extension plates provide a variety of operating widths.
  • Comprehensive comfort features: e.g. low oil shut off and maintenance-free alternator.
  • The large gasoline engine with its high reserve capacity ensures great efficiency and a long service life.
  • A safety cut-out mechanism prevents the operator getting trapped between machine and an obstruction when moving backwards.
Vibration Absorber

Very low hand-arm vibrations

The particularly designed Wacker Neuson guide handle provides a hand-arm vibration of under 2,5 m/s².

This allows for an all-day continuous operation without impairment and risk to the user.

All documentation requirements are omitted if an operator only works with equipment that has acceleration values below 2.5 m/s².


Vibration Absorbing Handle

Intuitive guide handle design

Change the direction of travel and control speed simply by moving the handle forwards and backwards.


Low hand-arm vibration
Especially in continuous use low hand-arm vibrations (HAV) are essential. Our reversible vibratory plates can be used without any time limit and mostly even without documentation requirements.
 
Easy to transport
On job sites as well as on transportation vehicles: thoughtful details make the transport of our Vibratory Plates comfortable and easy.
Diesel or Gasoline drive
High reserve capacity and long service life are the characteristics of the engines of all models – available with diesel or gasoline engines.
User comfort installed
For particular user friendliness all Wacker Neuson models are easy and simple to use.
