Wacker DPU5545He

Available For Rent
Available For Purchase

High compaction force combined with fast forward and reverse travel means the DPU 5545He achieves great productivity. It is an all-around versatile plate for all job sites that place high demands on the machine's performance potential. Its other outstanding characteristics are high operator comfort and a long service life. It is perfectly suited for the compaction of building back-fill, and of frost and sub bases when constructing roads, paths and parking lots. The 69 Hz frequency makes the DPU 5545He suitable for all purposes and compacts even medium-weight and heavy interlocking paving stone reliably. Compatec, the compaction control by Wacker Neuson, is available as a retrofit kit for all DPU 5545He models starting with the year 2011.
