Chicago Pneumatic Expands Forward Plate Compactor Lineup

June 10, 2016

INDEPENDENCE, OH (June 7, 2016)  Contractors and rental companies now have another option for compaction of thin asphalt layers, small repairs, and road maintenance work. The MV 58A forward asphalt plate compactor is the newest compaction machine from Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment (CP).

At only 150 pounds, the MV 58A is lightweight, powerful, and robust. An integrated, tubeless water distribution system prevents asphalt from sticking to the plate. The machine also leaves zero tread on the asphalt. Additionally, this system eliminates regular plate and pipe cleaning to save operators time.

Similar to all CP forward compaction plates, the MV 58A has a durable frame to protect crucial components. One of those components includes a strong and reliable 3-horsepower Honda engine.

A corrosion-free one-gallon water tank features an easy-to-reach flow adjustment valve. To support fast refills, the tank is also easy and quick to remove.

“This product has been specifically designed to meet demand from rental companies and contractors,” said Darrell Engle, product manager, light compaction at CP. “It is an ideal compactor for thin asphalt and small repairs on roads since the plate compactor is lightweight, fast, maneuverable and has a maintenance-free design.”

Transportation between job sites has also been engineered to be fast and simple. The MV 58A features a compact design and is equipped with an additional option of transport wheels.
