Milwaukee® Expands Presence in Site Preparation

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool introduces the most productive and easiest to use plate compactor. One of the many new additions to the MX FUEL™ Equipment System*, the Milwaukee MX FUEL™ 20” Plate Compactor eliminates the headaches associated with gas-powered light equipment while delivering the power and run-time users expect.

Critical to jobsite preparation, compaction increases ground density by removing air, increasing the ground’s density, strength, stability, and load-bearing capacity. Ideal for compacting flatwork, foundations, and utility trenches, the MX FUEL™ 20” Plate Compactor hits harder and travels faster without sacrificing compaction performance. The Milwaukee plate compactor has the fastest travel speeds in its class, keeping users productive on the job regardless of the compaction material such as crushed rock and stone, road base, asphalt, or even patio pavers.

Compatible with all MX FUEL™ REDLITHIUM™ battery packs, Milwaukee’s plate compactor provides instant power with no gas headaches, requires no regular maintenance, produces less noise and vibration, and zero emissions for a safer workspace. The battery-powered plate compactor is the only plate compactor in its class with the ability to go in both forward and reverse directions, giving users greater control. Featuring accessible push-buttons on the handle for direction, stand-by, and multiple speeds for precision maneuverability around forms. The handle can easily fold down, creating a smaller footprint for safer transportation around the jobsite and more efficient storage, whether storing under shelving or in the bed of a truck.

The MX FUEL™ 20” Plate Compactor has the run-time to get the job done. When paired with the MX FUEL™ REDLITHIUM™ FORGE™ HD12.0 Battery Pack, the plate compactor delivers up to 35 minutes of continuous run-time, or approximately 5,000 square feet of compaction per charge. The new MX FUEL™ Super Charger provides 2X faster charging speeds for increased productivity and efficiency on the jobsite, charging the REDLITHIUM™ FORGE™ HD12.0 Battery Pack in only 65 minutes to 100% charge. The battery pack and new MX FUEL™ Super Charger are COOL-CYCLE™ capable, an Active Cooling System that provides high-speed cooling for less downtime, allowing users to stay productive when swapping batteries.

As an added benefit, ONE-KEY™,** provides the ability to track the plate compactor with community tracking and alerts, complete inventory management, and industry leading smart-equipment technology to secure the user’s investment.

Milwaukee Tool remains unwavering in their commitment to delivering disruptive innovation by working alongside trade professionals to identify challenges and provide solutions that are unparalleled in enhancing jobsite safety and productivity. With solutions that cover the entire concrete pour to finish process, Milwaukee Tool’s MX FUEL™ Equipment System is safer, more reliable, and more productive, going beyond the limitations of gas and corded solutions.
