BCF1080 Forward Compactor

Features and Benefits

  • ROBUST THROTTLE CONTROLS - Why should you have to bend over and run next to your machine to make it stop? You’ll find conveniently mounted throttle controls standard on every piece of compaction in our lineup.
  • RETRACTABLE WHEEL KITS - Easily move your equipment to the site. Flip the wheels down and roll. They simply lock up when you don’t need them.
  • LIFTING BALES - Every plate compactor in our line has a robust lifting bale to make it easier to move your equipment when a wheel kit won’t do.
  • CLOSE TO THE EDGE - Need to compact close to an edge? You can get right up against it with our straight-edge plate design.
  • SEALED BELT GUARDS - Sometimes a single rock is all it takes to throw a belt. Our sealed cover design keeps rocks out and still cools properly.
