    I needed to get a plate compactor for some yard project and when I saw how expensive these things were to rent, decided to look around for a more cost effective option. I found this plate compactor made by Dirty Hand Tools (A company I had never heard of before) and a similarly priced one from a local discount tool store. I ended up purchasing the Dirty Hand plate compactor (from the manufacturer website directly) because it had a 2 years warranty vs 6 months for the other machine.
    The plate compactor arrived in about a week by truck. Unfortunately upon unpacking I noticed there was oil in the base of the unit. I cleaned it up and added more oil, and within a day the base again had oil in it.
    I contacted Dirty Hand warrant services, and within a week, received a new place compactor and they picked up the defective machine, all at no cost to me. The replacement came in perfect shape. I used it this past weekend to get my yard project done and it worked very well. I like that it is a 4 cycle and no need to mix oil and gas. The plate compactor appears to be well made and I suspect it will last a long time – whatever was wrong with the initial unit must have been a fluke I suspect.
    As previously mentioned, I had never heard of Dirty Hand tools previously but this experience gives me confidence in purchasing equipment again in the future (a mower perhaps?). For anyone wanting to save a few bucks renting expensive plate compactors, you cannot go wrong with this machine.
