Chicago Pneumatic Expands Forward Plate Compactor Line

The MV 58A forward asphalt plate compactor from Chicago Pneumatic is the company's newest, designed to compact thin asphalt layers, handle small repairs and road maintenance work. 

CP FORWARD PLATEWeighing 150 pounds, the MV 58A features an integrated, tubeless water distribution system that prevents asphalt from sticking to the plate. The machine also leaves zero tread on the asphalt. Additionally, this system eliminates regular plate and pipe cleaning to save time.

Similar to all CP forward compaction plates, the MV 58A has a durable frame to protect crucial components. One of those components includes a 3-hp Honda engine. A corrosion-free one-gallon water tank features an easy-to-reach flow adjustment valve. To support fast refills, the tank is also easy and quick to remove.

“This product has been specifically designed to meet demand from rental companies and contractors,” said Darrell Engle, product manager, light compaction at CP. “It is an ideal compactor for thin asphalt and small repairs on roads since the plate compactor is lightweight, fast, maneuverable and has a maintenance-free design.”   

The MV 58A features a compact design and is equipped with an additional option of transport wheels.
