MBW's AP2000 Series of vibratory plate compactors are specifically designed for asphalt applications. The mechanical construction of the AP2000 is specific to asphalt applications. Stress relieved steel plate housings are crack-resistant and provide long wear. Aluminum exciter housing dissipates heat rapidly and custom lubricants preserve bearing and seal integrity. Plate edges are replaceable for smooth asphalt finishes throughout the life of the machine.
