Wacker Plates and Compaction Hire Leicester

For wacker plate and compactor hire in Leicester visit Best at hire, your National tool hire centre.

If you are planning to work with concrete, more often than not you will need to hire vibration plates or a concrete compactor if you don't own the equipment yourself. This will enable you to prepare a solid foundation for your concrete to maximise its strength and durability.
Our compactor hire and vibrating plate hire service is aimed at both domestic and trade customers, offering all the compactor equipment necessary to create a stable subbase.

We can also rent other concrete and cement tools such as cement mixers and concrete mixers, so give us a call now on 0116 385 3220 to arrange all the hire equipment you need to carry out a professional job.

Why use a Concrete Compactor?

Your concrete will only end up as strong as your subgrade, i.e the soil underneath your subbase. This means it is vital to ensure your subgrade is well compacted and completely stable before you add your subbase. The final concrete is poured on top of the subbase and subgrade, and will suffer if you haven't prepared them properly.

Hire vibration plates to compact the soil / subgrade, and then either use this as your subbase or add an additional material on top such as fine stones – particularly advisable if your concrete surface needs to bear a significant amount of weight.

Also, bear in mind that the finer-grade stone available on the market will compact more effectively than cheaper, open-grade stone. Then majority of concrete jobs demand a subbase of about 4-8 inches in thickness, and this should be thoroughly compacted using a plate compactor to achieve long-lasting results.

Plate Compactor Hire Equipment

Browse our wacker plate hire and vibrating plate hire portfolio for machines that can be utilised in hard-to-access areas, larger spaces, or even for bedding in paving stones. We have lightweight compaction equipment ideal for domestic use right through to heavy-duty professional vibration plates that suit heavy contractor jobs. In between, our medium compaction plates are suitable for a wide range of jobs including most hardcore, sand or gravel compaction.

Hire online or get specialist advice by calling us on 0116 385 3220 to discuss your specific requirements. You can pick up your concrete compactor hire equipment from your nearest Leicester depot, from an alternative location in the East Midlands, or from any of our other nationwide hire locations. We can also offer trade accounts and arrange UK-wide delivery, with many items available the next day.
