Working on a job today where I'm going to be using a plate compactor a good bit. This is a tool I don't own, but usually rent.

Now is the time to buy, so what would you guys suggest?

I will be using it to compact base material for sidewalks as well as using over pavers and retaining wall block. I'd like something that is 5000 or so lbs of force, but this is probably overkill and might actually damage certain brands of pavers or block. I just like overkill on the sidewalk base I guess.

What are you guys using?
