This series of economical vibratory plates, the GP18 is portable, and offer outstanding compaction performance thanks to it's Honda GX120QX engine A patent-pending suspension system that places shock mounts in a predominantly shear mode at the high amplitude front end of the plate and a predominantly compressive mode at the low amplitude trailing end of the plate. This system reduces hand arm vibration and also better isolates all upper mass components, including the engine, from vibrations produced by the machine's exciter. With amplitudes up to .058 includes, centrifugal force up to 2100 lbf and travel speed to 75 feet per minute these plates are ideal in confined areas of granular soils including sands, bank run, gravels and capable of achieving lift depths of up to 10 inches (25cm).
These lightweight plates weighing 65kg are easy to lift and maneuver about the jobsite. Accompained by intense vibration this series of plates are ideally suited as an economical alternative for small to medium soil compaction applications.
- One piece exciter with self cleaning open base plate design.
- Made in the USA
- Optional lift cage available. Optional transport wheel kit available.
- Optional neoprene paving pad for placing interlocking paving stone / brick / block.
