Thickness of the layer to be compacted can be up to 250mm (100-250mm is ideal). Make sure soil is slightly moist (not wet and not dry) throughout the layer. 6-8 passes with the machine advancing at its normal pace will usually give you optimum compaction results- avoid "over compaction". Always run engine at Full speed when doing compaction work. Do not move the forward reverse control when engine is stopped or idling.
