Answer: I think you will want to rent one rather than buy one. A plate compactor is also called a soil compactor or a mechanical rammer. They retail for about $900. Soil compactors stabilize soil by compressing, kneading, or vibrating it to remove air pockets and increase density. You should be able to rent one for your project. (For more information do a web search for "soil compactors". Good luck with your project.
