Which: Plate Compactor / Wacker, please?


I have a fairly large area / volume of hard core, crusher run (?), decorative paving bricks, etc to lay, level and settle in.
Having looked at hire prices for a petrol driven compactor / Wacker plate, I've decided to buy (and probably sell on in the distant future).
Any hints, advice, does and don'ts, good 'uns & BAD 'uns, PLEASE?
I sort of favour Honda engines.

For what you need, hire one, you wont buy a decent Honda powered whacker for less than £800

Many thanks, both ...... :shock:

I know it's not a Honda, but I was perhaps taking, unrealistically, this as a guide.

Anyone had experience of one of these, please?
