The GP3000-15 is ideal for confined work areas, such as sidewalk, curb and gutter, and narrow trenches. This specialty plate is not a lightweight compactor. Its operating weight is over 200 lbs. (91 kg) and produces compaction depths up to 16 in. (41 cm)* and a travel speed of 120 ft/min (36.6 m/min).
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.
