Very happy with this compactor. After experiencing the cost of repeatedly renting machines, the price point of this one made it an attractive option. If you’re going to rent more than a few weekends, it’s worth considering buying an entry level machine like this. Been pleasantly surprised by its performance, it’s exceeded my expectations. Doing perimeter drains, driveways and sidewalk prep as well as landscaping as part of a big home renovation, it’s been nice to have the machine on site. Small enough to store easily but big enough to do any job at a residential worksite. Have not required parts or after sale service. Highly recommend.
