APF 12/40 Forward Travel Plate Compactor

A strong all-around performer

A powerful, efficient petrol Honda engine brings optimal machine performance to this plate compactor.

The engine is also environmentally friendly, thanks to exceptional fuel consumption, minimal maintenance needs and low sound levels. The machine works well in many applications and is commonly utilised on small soil and asphalt jobsites. A 10-litre water tank, large for this particular machine class, is an option appreciated by many contractors.


A powerful Honda petrol engine is the force behind the exciter unit and the foundation for the plate’s exceptional compaction performance.

A centrifugal clutch and V belt effectively transfer power to the exciter system that delivers the powerful forward movement.

An optional water sprinkling system enables work on bituminous surfaces and greatly enhances the compactor’s versatility.


The vibration-isolated guide handle reduces operator stress, permitting longer working shifts while minimising the risk of injury.

The handle can be folded flush with the machine or even removed, enhancing manoeuvrability in tight spaces and making transport easy.


A well-protected, robust centrifugal clutch with wear-resistant V belt provides long machine life.

An extended-life exciter unit stretches service intervals and reduces maintenance costs.

The base plate utilises wear-resistant materials and a self-cleaning design to lengthen the unit’s life.
