    Are there any adjustments on a plate compactor? The on I purchased seems to move forward very slow, and on dirt does not move i have to push. I never operated on before but have seen them in action, and mine does not seem right.

    What kind of compactor? How are the belts on it? Does the motor run good? Is this a reversable machine?
