Doosan Portable Power is donating a vibratory plate compactor to the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) Auction, which will be held at World of Concrete 2014 in Las Vegas, Nev. Both a silent and live auction are scheduled for Wednesday, January 22 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The silent auction will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the live auction will begin at 1 p.m.

The Doosan BX-80WH vibratory plate compactor provides contractors with operator-friendly features that make for more efficient, convenient operation. Key features include a compact vibratory plate design that offers great maneuverability on the jobsite and compaction in confined areas, and fold-over handles that provide ease of storage. The compactor also has high centrifugal force and a handle-mounted ratcheting throttle designed for improved control around jobsite obstacles.

The BX-80WH is powered by a rugged Honda four-cycle engine at 3,600 revolutions per minute, and recoil start engineered to provide years of dependable operation. For the compaction of hot mix asphalt, the unit is equipped with a standard water sprinkler system and a steel base plate, which outperforms other base plate materials by heating up to optimal temperature faster thus creating a smooth mat finish. The compactor is also fitted with standard vibration-reducing, padded grip handles that are fully adjustable to maximize operator comfort and transport convenience.

The annual CIM auction features equipment, supplies and other items donated by producers and contractors in the concrete industry. All proceeds from the auction will help support the CIM programs at four universities strategically placed across the country that offer four-year degrees in Concrete Industry Management ­ Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, California State University ­ Chico and Texas State University.
