The Evoloution one is pretty light mate. It's just not heavy enough for knocking down Type 1, but one man can handle it and it's reliable.
Unfortunatly if you have to compact sub base, it's just not up to the job.
Can't see you'd go wrong with Belle. If you're not going to use it a lot, the LTS 80KG jobby is prety good for £280 inc VAT!! They do a 60KG version too. Search LTS whacker on ebay or Google.
The Chinese copy of a Honda engine is a beauty- they've got it down pat. Starts first pull and idles smooth as silk. The plate is missing the turn-up on the side edges, whci can lead to cutting in when turning. The main thing to be aware of is that the anti vibe isn't great, so it's onyl good for very short term use, especially if you are getting employees to use it.
I've had mine six months and used it on six jobs. Very happy with it, but if I used it weekly I'd have gone Belle.
