The Chicago Pneumatic line of seven forward and reversible asphalt plates was built to handle the most demanding compaction jobs safely and efficiently, according to the company. Machines range in operating weight from 344 lbs. (156 kg) to 1,111 lbs. (504 kg), and boast centrifugal forces ranging from 7,875 lbs. (3,572kg) to 13,488 lbs. (6,118kg). With a hydraulic steering system, the well-balanced machines allow for smooth and consistent operation, maximum operator comfort and strong maneuvering capabilities. Available with gas-powered Honda engines or diesel-driven Hatz engines, the wear-and-tear resistant plates have heavy-duty frames and engine covers that protect vital components, driving down maintenance costs. Additionally, the bottom plates are constructed from wear-resistant Hardox 400 steel with a hardness of 400 HBW. An electric start on the MV480, the heaviest model, boosts efficiency on job sites.
