Vibco Plate Compactor Used on HGTV Show

VIBCO VR-18 Reversible Plate Compactor Used on Set of HGTV's Curb Appeal: The Block.

WYOMING, RI - VIBCO Vibrators provided a VR-18 Reversible Plate Compactor for use during production and filming of HGTV's new series, Curb Appeal: The Block, hosted by Chip Wade and premiering on January 1 at 2:00pm eastern immediately following HGTV's live, uninterrupted coverage of the 121st Tournament of Roses Parade.

"It's simply the best plate compactor I've ever used," says the show's host, Chip Wade. "It's sturdy construction moves effortlessly across the jobsite, and has a seamless transition into reverse. The motor runs strong and smooth - starting effortlessly on the first pull. It conveniently stores away with the wheeled cart."

VIBCO's VR-18 Reversible Plate Compactor is an ideal solution for landscape and site preparation projects and is part of VIBCO's complete line of Plate Compactors and Vibratory Rollers.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Mr. Wade on his new series," says Karl Wadensten, VIBCO President. "Our plate compactors and vibratory rollers are the most durable and reliable on the market. We have many loyal customers who depend on our equipment… one customer loves his VIBCO compactor so much he tattooed our logo onto his leg! [see a video about this customer]. It's exciting to be able to demonstrate VIBCO's quality to an even wider audience."

About Curb Appeal: The Block
HGTV's Curb Appeal travels to Atlanta to help beautify homes on the same block with a variety of makeovers. In each episode of Curb Appeal: The Block, designer John Gidding, contractor Chip Wade and project manager Kimberly Lacy overhaul one home's exterior with a makeover so dramatic it's no longer considered the neighborhood eyesore but the envy of the block. Next, they make their way up and down the street to repaint front doors, add window boxes and provide smaller-scale makeovers that create instant impact and increase the value of the entire block. The series will air regularly on HGTV on Saturdays at 9:30pm. [more information about the show]
