Special Instructions:


GP18 Plate Compactor with Honda GX120 Motor & Lift Cage

This series of vibratory plates, the GP12, GP15 & GP18, are portable, and offer outstanding compaction performance. 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 .067 inches, centrifugal force up to 2780 lbf and travel speeds 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 12 inches (31 cm).

These lightweight plates weighing 130 lbs (59 kg) to 161 lbs (73 kg) are easy to lift and maneuver about the jobsite. Accompanied by intense vibration this series of plates are ideally suited as an economical alternative for small to medium soil compaction applications.
