MBW’s AP2000 was the first vibratory plate compactor specifically designed for asphalt applications. Frequency, amplitude, centrifugal force and mass are all established at optimal levels for maximum productivity on asphalt.

Further, the mechanical construction of the AP2000 is specific to this very demanding application. Stress relieved steel plate housings are crack resistant and provide long wear. Aluminum exciter housing dissipates heat rapidly and custom lubricants preserve bearing and seal integrity. The self cleaning plate prevents dirt build-up.

The GP2000 is a permutation of the AP2000 where frequency, amplitude, centrifugal force and mass are adjusted to provide optimal productivity in the compaction of sands and gravel. The GP2000 is capable of achieving excellent densities on lifts of granular soils up to 12″ (31 cm)*.

The GP3550 is a high production compactor that will run decades with reasonable maintenance. The deck features a full roll cage as standard equipment with provisions for a water tank for asphalt compaction on AP3550. The base plate is self-cleaning with an open sided plate design that allows material to flow out and away from the belt/pulley assembly during operation. Both models provide reduced hand/arm vibration, full roll cage protection, enhanced amplitude, faster travel speed and updated yet rugged appearance.

The GP5800 is an upgrade of model GP5500. GP5800 maintains its predecessor’s outstanding performance characteristics while improving the design in terms of ergonomics, ease of service and product life expectations. Among these are a removable, easily serviced exciter assembly, superior suspension for improved engine isolation, lower hand/arm vibration and standard protective cage surrounding engine. This high production compactor travels up to 130 ft/min, generates .94 inch amplitude for deep penetration of backfill materials and is unmatched on mid-sized to large commercial and infrastructure applications.
