Doosan Branded Light Compaction Range

The new Light Compaction Equipment Range from Doosan Portable Power comprises vibratory plate compactors, upright rammers and walk-behind single and double drum rollers designed for a wide variety of compaction applications.

These are perfect fit to the smaller range of ‘utility’ machines from Doosan and Bobcat and further increase the versatility through the one brand.

Doosan vibratory plate compactors comprises the six single direction vibratory plate compactors Vibratory plate compactors

The selection of Doosan vibratory plate compactors comprises the six single direction vibratory plate compactors – the BX-6WH, BX8WH, BX12WH, BX-60WH, BX-80WH and BX-120WH.

All are powered by Honda engines with ratcheting throttle control for improved manoeuvring around obstacles. Performance of these plate compactors make them ideal for efficiently compacting granular soils and crushed aggregates.

The three lighter (BX-6WH, BX8WH, BX12WH) plates offer plate sizes of 400 x 525 mm, 480 x 585 mm and 550 x 650 mm, respectively. The smallest weighs 70 kg and compacts to a depth of 30 cm with an impact force of 11.8 kN and a vibration rate of 92 Hz. Middle of the range model weighing 90 kg, has an impact force of 14.7 kN, a compaction depth of 30 cm and operates at 100 Hz. The largest of these three plates weights 110 kg , has a vibration rate of 108 Hz and combines this with an impact force of 20.6 kN and compaction depth of 40.5 cm.

The larger three models (the BX-60WH, BX-80WH and BX-120WH) offer plate sizes of 430 x 565 mm, 500 x 565 mm and 550 x 575 mm, respectively. The smallest of these three weighs 83 kg and compacts to a depth of 30 cm with an impact force of 15.3 kN and a vibration rate of 93.3 Hz. Weighing 94 kg, the middle size unit has an impact force of 18.0 kN, a compaction depth of 35 cm and operates at 93.3 Hz. The largest plate has an operating weight of 111 kg, the same vibration rate as the other two models and combines this with an impact force of 25.4 kN and compaction depth of 41 cm.

The range also includes the VP-8RH combination compactor, which features a removable rubber roller-based vibratory plate designed to compact base materials with the rollers are removed and then for work on finished block work with the rollers are installed. It has a plate size of 500 x 480 mm, weighs 133 kg and compacts to a depth of 30 cm with an impact force of 16.7 kN and a vibration rate of 106.7 Hz.

Standard features of the vibratory plate compactors include adjustable guide handles, oil bath exciter bearing lubrication to eliminate the need for routine greasing, a removable eccentric housing for ease and economy of repair, as well as an engine protection cage with an integrated lifting bail. A gravity-feed water sprinkler system is available for each model for compaction of hot mix asphalt.

Heavy-duty, sealed exciter bearings reduce maintenance, whilst at the same time permit a higher centrifugal force compared to single-direction vibratory plates. Special mounts isolate the engine and guide handle from vibration and shock.
