Plate tamps are walk behind compactors used to compact gravel, sand or soil on a small scale using impact, vibration, and kneading. These machines are used on cohesive and semi-cohesive soils, as they are capable of applying a high impact force with high amplitude. This force is delivered at a rate of approximately 500 to 750 blows per minute. Plate tampers are outfitted with a small gasoline or diesel engine that provides power to a large piston fitted with two sets of springs. In operation, these compactors must be tilted forward to enable them to move forward as they jump.
