BILT HARD PLATE COMPACTOR - Unboxing and first impression

First, I would like to say I am glad that I made this purchase directly from Bilt Hard's website. Transaction was easy and significantly less expensive than the Other "A option." I unpacked and assembled the unit without issue, although the directions could have provided a bit more detail for assembly. This unit is quite heavy as should be expected. You may need a helper - 135#'s. Box was well constructed and reinforced with plywood to mitigate shipping damage. There were no signs of any damage on the unit. Operating Instructions were comprehensive. I added the oil and gas and was amazed that it started on the first pull right out of the box. All of the controls, On/Off, Choke, Fuel Shutoff, and hand throttle worked perfectly. I have not yet put it to the real test of compacting but plan to do so within the next 2-3 weeks.

Nice farm tool

Have a 1/8 mile driveway that gets potholes had water damage at times. Today after the repairs used this to backfill and ramp down the dirt and gravel so we can get actual cars up the driveway. Some notes:There are places online to read how to break in these Chinese Honda clone engines. They last longer if you do that.I don't go by the manual for crankcase oil. It needs to be at the bottom of the threads of the oil dipstick when you look down in there. That way the low oil sensor doesn't shut you off. Took more oil than it says in the manual. Anyway, after break in I used it several hours and it worked great!!! For the price of a few rentals I own it now. So - last bit if you can get ethanol free fuel use it and use sta-bil to extend the life of your carburetor.

Works Great!

I recently purchased this compactor for a large backyard project. Did the math and didn't pencil out to rent one, too costly. Researched many models, features, and read reviews. Great deal through Amazon. Operating now for two days. Arrived earlier than shipping indicated, which gave me a head start on the project. Shipping box was intact. No damage, wooden frame around cardboard box. Assembly was fast. Comes with Engine Manual and Operating Instructions. Followed directions, oil, gas, etc., and easy start-up. Completed 520 sq. ft. in about 40 minutes, (2 passes). (This things a beast!!)Great machine for the money...
