Husqvarna LG400 Forward/Reversible Plate Compactor

SKU XL-00465
In stock
Product Details

The Husqvarna LG400 is a powerful forward/reversible compactor developed for deep compaction of granular soil. Capable of compaction depths of up to 0.6 m, depending on soil type, the LG400 is a viable alternative to rollers. It is easy to use and manoeuvre, and is suitable for use in confined areas. With a 650 mm Hardox 400 steel plate this compactor is efficient and reliable with a service friendly design. Vibration damping handles help to protect the operator and allow for longer working periods. Forward and reverse operations are controlled via a lever on the handle so the operator does not need to push or pull the compactor.

The LG400 is capable of some of the deepest compaction depths in the Husqvarna groundworks range. Deep compaction is vital on rockfill and thick macadam beds, especially if the material is embedded in clay which can liquefy when wet. The extreme vibratory pressure exerted by the LG400 is the best method of deep compaction on small to medium-sized Projects.

A paving kit is available which will help protect paving slabs from damage during compaction.
