Product Details

The Husqvarna LF100 is a forward plate compactor, ideally suited for use on thin to medium layers of granular soil. It can also be purchased as the LF100 LAT which includes a front mounted water tank and transport wheels. The addition of a water tank makes this compactor suitable for use on asphalt. With a plate area of 500 mm or 595 mm and a speed of up to 25 meters per minute, the LF100 L is capable of high rates of production. These high production rates mean that the LF100 L can be used on medium to large project areas requiring vibratory compaction. The Husqvarna LF100 L and LF100 LAT can be supplied with either a Honda GX160 petrol engine or a Hatz 1B20 diesel engine.

Soil compaction is an important first step in foundation building, road laying and most other construction projects. Husqvarna forward plate compactors are a reliable and cost effective solution. They are easy to use, transport and store, without compromising on speed of efficiency. Patented anti-vibration handles ensure operators can work for longer, whilst being protected from the damaging effects of vibratory force. Only one layer of soil should be compacted at a time, and it is vital to avoid over compacting. The addition of water should be carefully managed on soils such as slay and silt. When compacting asphalt, water is a must as it will allow the LF100 LAT to create a smooth surface. Compaction transforms the asphalt mix from a loose state to a compact surface that carries heavy loads.

A block paving kit is available to help protect paving slabs from chipping or cracking while the LF100 is compacting.
