Vibratory compaction equipment manufacturer Sakai America Inc. of Adairsville, Ga., is looking for builders of reservoirs, canals, and landfills to verify initial test results of the company's upgraded 84-inch soil compactor. The prototype machine shown here was purchased by the landfill contractor who tested it. Two more demonstration units are scheduled to be available in early March. Various tire types will be available along with combination, smooth, or pad foot drums. The smooth tires and drum shown on this machine provide surprisingly good traction and leave no imprint in the soil — a plus for soil cement applications. Contact Gerry Petty at 770-712-6168 or
