Husqvarna LF80L Forward Plate Compactor

The LF80 is part of Husqvarna's newest range of plate compactors, and it makes light work of compacting granular soil in thin to medium layers. The pioneering low-vibration handle delivers industry leading levels of comfort and safety with a rating of as little as 1.2 metres per second squared.

Maximum production rates can be achieved because of the quick and direct compaction methods, and you'll find a perfect balance between power and manoevrability. High compaction rates and fast travel speeds mean that asphalt repair and maintenance jobs can be completed in a short space of time.

The LAT model is supplied with a water and wheel kit as standard, or you can purchase these accessories to fit the L model retrospectively.

Safety and Comfort

Vibration levels below 2 m/s² are achievable thanks to the patented low-vibration handle, which allows hours of comfortable and safe operation. This is also well below industry vibration limits. This low-vib handle is optional and can be clipped back onto the standard handle when not in use. Husqvarna even offer a lifetime warranty on this handle.


The unit is easy to use, transport and store because of features such as a foldable handle, optional wheel kit and lifting eye. You can choose the LF80LAT model which has these features as standard, or you can choose to add the transport kit and water tank separately later.


If you need to protect paving blocks from scratches and cracking, you can use the optional block paving attachments. We can supply a block paving pad for both models, details available on request.

Efficiency and Speed

If you need to work for longer with less water refills, the optional water tank with smart water distribution delivers exceptionally efficient water use. A speed of up to 33 metres per minute makes it an ideal choice for mid-sized soil and asphalt compaction projects.


The compact profile of the LF80L and LF80LAT series saves space for storage but it also allows for a high level of manoevrability around the site.
