Main features

DENQBAR professional reversible plate compactor with forward and return flow

Reversible plate compactor

By definition, a reversible plate compactor is capable of going forward and backward. Reversibility eases changing the driving direction and therefore it provides a simpler handling for the user. Just use the guide lever on the handle grip at DENQBAR plate compactors. Especially when using heavy plate compactors (models over 130 kg) and in confined spaces (eg in sewers, ditches and track construction, reversibility is the key. A reversible plate compactor also facilitates stationary compaction, with which even the hardest soil conditions can be handled.

DENQBAR professional plate compactor with polyurethane pad for paving

Polyurethane paving pad

For levelling laid paving stones, a paving pad is necessary as it avoids scratches, flaking of material and other similar problems. Just put it between plate and surface. The abrasion-resistant and dimensionally stable DENQBAR paving pads are the best solution! Top of the line, we enclose a free polyurethane mat to the delivery! With this set you have smartly saved and are able to start working immediately. Furthermore, the installation of the paving pad is very simple as the plate compactor already provides the accurate boreholes and includes the necessary fixing material in delivery. You just have to move the machine onto the pre-drilled paving pad and then fix it with nuts and screws.

Extension plates

This DENQBAR plate compactor impresses with another advantage: It is supplied with two extension plates, so the working performance can be extended. Make your work experience as efficient as it gets! Moreover, fixing the extension plates is simple: Just screw them into the intended holes with the material delivered. Of course, the extension plates are just as robust and highly wear-resistant as the base plate, therefore guaranteeing a long life.

DENQBAR professional plate compactor with protective frame and slingbar

Protective frame and sling bar

Whether it is during the transport or on site, damages can quickly happen! Therefore, all plate compactors by DENQBAR are equipped with a robust protection frame. Protecting the important parts of the machine, as the engine block, it increases the service life of the plate compactors. As well there is another advantage: The integrated sling bar. Using a crane, the plate compactor can be quickly loaded onto the loading surface of a transporter as well as unloaded off it. Anyone who has ever had to lower a heavier plate compactor into a canal or a trench will appreciate the value of a sling bar.

DENQBAR professional plate compactor easy to transport

Transport wheels

In general, manufacturers aim to design their products as light as possible. But with the manufacturing of plate compactors it’s just the opposite: the heavier the better. More weight implies more power. Well, but try to move this weight once the plate is not in use! Fortunately, this model is equipped with wheels to transport the plate compactor easily. Both wheels are securely attached to the handle grip by a tension spring. These can be as quickly removed as fixed. Just slightly tilt the plate compactor forward to attach or remove the wheels, making it child’s play to transport your plate compactor.

Work with DENQBAR professional plate compactor vibration-damped

Vibration damping

The compaction is one of the most challenging tasks on every construction site. With developing this plate compactor, DENQBAR makes working on a site as comfortable as possible. Especially thanks to an innovative handle grip equipped on our plates compactors, vibration strain are significantly reduces on the arms while guiding the device. Thanks to this innovation, the use of the plate compactor will not cause physical stress any longer. Finally focus on what matters!

Operating mode

Reversible plate compactors have both a forward and a backward mode. The advantage for the user is the easy change of direction. With DENQBAR plate compactors, you just have to flip a lever on the guide handle. Therefore, the operation and driving comfort of a reversible plate compactor are a lot more pleasant.

Decisive for this function is the number of exciter shafts. Non-reversible models are equipped with one shaft, while reversible plate compactors already have two exciter shafts installed.

Physical, the motor-driven exciter is an unbalanced mass that moves in a circular path. It is mainly responsible for the locomotion and the generated compaction pressure of a plate compactor. When the unbalanced mass passes the uppermost point in the exciter, the upward directed centrifugal forces arise. As these centrifugal forces are much larger than the weight of the machine, the plate compactor jumps up a little bit with each rotation of the unbalanced mass for the fraction of a second. When falling back down, the area below the base plate will be compacted significantly due to the large force potentials (force is the product of mass and acceleration).

Moving forward or reverse is due to the interaction of the two exciter shafts. To be more exact, it depends on the current position of the unbalanced masses to each other. This interaction is directly influenced by lever. You can force the exciter shafts in opposite directions, which ultimately ensures the reversibility of the plate compactor.

Innovative and powerful: professional quality for the most demanding work.

Stop looking for it! You will not find any disadvantages concerning the handling or the ease of use of this product: since our DQ-0217 is reversible, it can work both forward and backward, so the plate compactor can perform greater tasks in confined areas. Thanks to its stationary compaction function even the most stubborn soils are not a problem anymore. The center-mounted sling bar on the sturdy protective frame allows for easy transport and is particularly useful, for example, when the plate compactor is to be lowered into a trench or brought back up again.

You should rely on long-time experience of a specialist retailer, especially when buying a plate compactor as primarily performance, processing, ease of use and robustness are important. The major advantage is that we are also the manufacturer of these machines. Today, DENQBAR is a key manufacturer on this market. With our wide and high quality range of products we meet individual requirements of our customers. Also contributing to this is the plate compactor DQ-0217, one of our most popular models.
