Atlas Copco Construction Equipment has introduced its new full line of light compaction equipment. The complete range, which includes tampers, forward plates, forward and reversible plates, duplex rollers and trench compactors will be available through Atlas Copco’s existing dealer and distributor network in the United States.


The LT series of tampers is suitable for applications on both granular and cohesive soils, and features a low-emission, low-noise Honda 4-stroke engine. The multifunctional B.E.S.T (Breather shut off, Electrical shut off, Shut off fuel and Throttle control) fuel tank ensures easy start up and optimal performance.

Forward Plate

The LF series of forward plates is designed for compacting granular soils and asphalt. Designed to be an economical solution for small repair and maintenance work, the series also features a low-vibration handle to reduce operator fatigue.

Forward-Reversible Plate

The LG (gear) and LH (hydraulic) series of forward and reversible plates are an economical alternative to rollers. Designed to compact soil in areas like trenches and parking lots, they also are suitable for special applications like block paving and also are equipped with low vibration handles.

Walk-Behind Duplex

The LP series of walk-behind, or pedestrian, duplex rollers is suitable for compacting thin layers of granular soils and asphalt. The rollers can be used for small jobs, repair work and compaction in confined areas. The LP series oil cooling system and large water tank increase productivity and equipment life substantially. The LP compactor’s duplex rollers are hydraulically driven with no chains or gears to increase the complexity of operation.

Vibratory Compactor

The LP series vibratory trench compactor, or trench roller, is suitable for the compaction of cohesive and granular soils in trenches and confined areas. The LP trench roller also can be used for compaction work close to obstacles, due to no overhanging or protruding parts. A Bluetooth-based remote control version of the LP trench roller allows for multiple, individually-paired remote units to operate onsite without crossover or interference.
