Designed for both domestic and commercial applications, this effective and easy-handling petrol compactor-plate from Handy has been designed to prepare the ground for landscaping, patio-laying and extension-building.
Delivering a huge 5.5hp via a high-torque V-belt drive is a Loncin G160F engine; a large-displacement (163cc) four-stroke forced-air-cooled motor with an OHV configuration for a sizeable cut in fuel-consumption, emissions, noise and vibration; and a metal-cam that combines with a cast-iron cylinder-sleeve and a forged-steel connection-rod to confer fantastic long-term reliability.
A low-oil alert system protects the engine by automatically shutting it down when the reservoir’s running dry; while a transistor-type ignition works to minimise fuel-consumption on start-up.
Also important in terms of the engine is the cavernous three-litre fuel-tank that delivers an impressive three-hour run-time on one fill.
The Handy THLC29142 Petrol Compactor-Plate operates down to a substantial 25cm and exerts a massive 11000N (1121kg) on the ground-surface.
It’s fitted with a comfortable soft-grip handlebar which can be collapsed for convenient transport and storage; and it offers a sizeable 35cm (14″) working-width and moves at 25 metres per-minute, so you can expect impressive productivity.
This model can be paired-up with an optional wheel-kit for enhanced manoeuvrability and is capable of handling gradients up to 20 degrees.
