AEM recently launched a new North America reporting program for mounted hydraulic plate compactors (MBPCs).

According to AEM Director of Statistics and Market Information Rex Sprietsma, the product definition being used for reporting purposes describes the equipment as a hydraulic vibratory plate compactor, which is mounted on a host carrier such as a mini-excavator, a skid steer loader, a loader backhoe, small-, medium-, or large-track tire excavator, a rubber tired excavator or a pedestal boom system.

Participating member companies will receive monthly output reports with shipments for seven “working weight” size classes, ranging from less than 400 pounds to 4,000 pounds and more.

Eight member companies of the Mounted Breaker Manufacturers Bureau (MBMB) are currently reporting: Allied Construction Products; Atlas Copco/Chicago Pneumatic; Doosan/Bobcat/Montabert/Tramac; Breaker Technology; Caterpillar, Indeco, Okada America and Toku America.
