The MVC-80 Series vibratory plate compactors from Multiquip Inc., Carson, Calif., reduce vibration by 50% when compared with preceding models, courtesy of a new anti-vibration handle system (AVS). This new handle design significantly reduces operator fatigue while boosting productivity.
With a centrifugal force of 2,925 lb, the MVC-80s are ideally suited to compacting granular soils and asphalt. At maximum speed, the unit can compact up to 72 ft of material per minute. These forward-plate compactors are offered with 5.7-hp Honda and 5.5-hp Robin gasoline engines and have exciter speeds of 5,580 rpm. Other standard features include a 13.7-quart plastic water tank that is easily removable and requires no plumbing or installation and a lifting bale for pickup, eliminating the need to use a lifting strap or hook-up.
