Wacker is a German Company that, if they didn’t invent the Vibrating Plate, they were the first to manufacture a reliable unit that helped compact road base for paving – and roads.
Nearly all of the compaction plates we hire are manufactured by Wacker. We’ve tried some other brands over the years but keep coming back to Wacker. They’re no longer made in Australia – but what is these days – but we’ve never had any quality issues with a vibrating plate manufactured by them.
Some of our bigger 300kg reversible units are made by other companies – but the small units are something we can say are a “wacker plate”.
And so, a “wacker” – while a trademark – is a commonly used term for a Vibrating Compactor Plate. Which means if someone tells you to get a wacker packer to help with your paving job – something from this page is exactly what they’re referring to.
Wacker Hire, Vibe Plate Hire, Compaction Plate Hire – there are lots of different names for these units.
