This series of economical vibratory plates – the 12, 15 & 18 – is portable and offers outstanding compaction performance. A patented suspension system places shock mounts predominantly in a shear mode at the high-amplitude front end of the plate, and in a compressive mode at the low-amplitude trailing end of the plate. This system reduces hand-arm vibration and better isolates all upper mass components, including the engine, from vibrations produced by the machine’s exciter. With amplitudes up to 0.061 inches, centrifugal force up to 2780 lbf, and travel speeds up to 83 feet per minute, these plates are ideal for confined areas of granular soils, including sands and gravels. They are also capable of achieving lift depths of up to 10 inches (28 cm).

These lightweight plates weighing 130 lbs (59 kg) to 178 lbs (81 kg) are easy to lift and maneuver about the job site. Accompanied by intense vibration, this series of plates are ideally suited as an economical option for small to medium compaction applications.
