The Wacker Neuson DPU130r vibratory plate: Multiple awards and not to be outdone in power.

The DPU130r can replace a heavy 7-ton roller, because it develops a comparable compaction performance. At just 1,200 kg, it weighs significantly less than a roller, is more compact and more flexible in use. The concept with two base plates also makes the DPU130r precisely controllable and therefore maneuverable.
With its infrared remote control, the operator stands at a safe distance - free of any stress from vibrations and with significantly less dust and noise.
