MVH-304DSB — SAFETY MESSAGE ALERT SYMBOLS  
HAZARD SYMBOLS  
FORYOUR SAFETY ANDTHE SAFETY OF OTHERS!  
Safety precautions should be followed at all times when  
operating this equipment. Failure to read and understand the  
Safety Messages and Operating Instructions could result in  
injury to yourself and others.  
Lethal Exhaust Gases  
Engine exhaust gases contain poisonous  
NOTE  
carbon monoxide. This gas is colorless and  
odorless, and can cause death if inhaled.  
NEVER operate this equipment in a confined  
area or enclosed structure that does not  
provide ample free flow air.  
This Owner's Manual has been developed to provide  
complete instructions for the safe and efficient operation  
of the Multiquip Model MVH-304DSB Reversible Plate  
Compactor. Refer to the engine manufacturer’s  
instructions for data relative to its safe operation.  
Before using this reversible plate compactor, ensure  
that the operating individual has read and  
understands all instructions in this manual.  
Explosive Fuel  
GASOLINE is extremely flammable, and its  
vapors can cause an explosion if ignited. DO  
NOT start the engine near spilled fuel or  
combustible fluids. DO NOT fill the fuel tank  
while the engine is running or hot. DO NOT  
overfill tank, since spilled fuel could ignite if it  
comes into contact with hot engine parts or  
sparks from the ignition system. Store fuel in  
approved containers, in well-ventilated areas  
and away from sparks and flames. NEVER  
use fuel as a cleaning agent.  
SAFETY MESSAGE ALERT SYMBOLS  
The three (3) Safety Messages shown below will inform you  
about potential hazards that could injure you or others. The  
Safety Messages specifically address the level of exposure to  
the operator, and are preceded by one of three words: DANGER,  
WARNING, or CAUTION.  
Burn Hazards  
DANGER: You WILL be KILLED or  
SERIOUSLY injured if you do not follow  
directions.  
Engine components can generate extreme heat.  
To prevent burns, DO NOT touch these areas  
while the engine is running or immediately after  
operations. Never operate the engine with heat  
shields or heat guards removed.  
WARNING: You CAN be KILLED or  
SERIOUSLY injured if you do not follow  
directions.

may lead to serious injury or even death!This  
equipment is to be operated by trained and  
qualified personnel only! This equipment is  
for industrial use only.  
NEVER touch the hot exhaust manifold,  
muffler or cylinder. Allow these parts to  
cool before servicing engine or  
reversible plate compactor.  
The following safety guidelines should always be used when  
operating the MIKASA MVH-304DSB Reversible Plate  
Compactor:  
HighTemperatures – Allow the engine to cool before adding  
fuel or performing service and maintenance functions. Contact  
with hot components can cause serious burns.  
The engine of this reversible plate compactor requires an  
adequate free flow of cooling air. NEVER operate the  
reversible plate compactor in any enclosed or narrow area  
where free flow of the air is  
restricted. If the air flow is  
restricted it will cause serious  
damage to the reversible plate  
compactor or engine and may  
GENERAL SAFETY

Use one point suspension hook and lift straight upwards.  
NEVER allow any person or animal to stand underneath the  
machine while lifting.  
Try not to lift machine to unnecessary heights.  
Transporting  
Always shutdown engine before transporting.  
Tighten fuel tank cap securely and close fuel cock to prevent  
fuel from spilling.  
Drain fuel when transporting compactor over long distances  
or bad roads.  
Always tie-down the compactor during transportation by  
securing the compactor's guard frame with rope.  
Emergencies  
ALWAYS know the location of the nearest fire extinguisher.  
Maintenance Safety  
NEVER lubricate components or attempt service on a  
running machine.  
ALWAYS allow the machine a proper amount of time to  
cool before servicing.  
Keep the machinery in proper running condition.  
Fix damage to the machine immediately and always replace  
broken parts.  
Dispose of hazardous waste properly. Examples of  
potentially hazardous waste are used motor oil, fuel and  
fuel filters.  
DO NOT use food or plastic containers to dispose of  
hazardous waste.  
DO NOT pour waste, oil or fuel directly onto the ground,

MVH-304DSB— FEATURES  
Plate Compactor  
Frequency/Speed  
The Mikasa MVH-304DSB is a walk behind, reversible plate  
compactor designed for the compaction of sand, clay and  
asphalt. This plate compactor is a powerful compacting tool  
capable of applying a tremendous force in consecutive high  
frequency vibrations to a soil surface. Its applications include  
soil compacting for road, embankments and reservoirs as well  
as backfilling for gas pipelines, water pipelines and cable  
installation work.  
The compactor's vibrating plate maximum frequency is 4200  
vpm (vibrations per minute).The forward and reverse travel speed  
of the compactor is approximately 66 ft./minute (20 meters/  
minute).  
Engine  
The Mikasa MVH-340DSB Plate Compactor is equipped with a  
Yanmar L100EE-DEVMK3 diesel engine.  
Controls  
Vibratory Plates  
Before starting the MVH-340DSB Plate Compactor, identify and  
understand the function of the controls and components as  
indicated in Figure 3.  
The vibratory plates of the MVH-304DSB produce low amplitude  
high frequency vibrations, designed to compact granular soils.  
The resulting vibrations cause forward motion.The engine and  
handle are vibration isolated from the vibrating plate.The heavier  
the plate, the more compaction force it generates.  
ReversibleVibratory Plates  
Reversible vibratory plates have two eccentric weights that allow  
a smooth transition for forward and reverse travel, plus increased  
compaction force as the result of dual weights.  
Due to their weight and force, reversible plates are ideal for  
semi-cohesive soils.

1.  
Hand Grip – When operating the compactor use this hand  
grip to manuever the compactor.  
2.  
Forward & Reverse Lever – Push the lever forward, the  
compactor will move in a forward direction, pull the lever  
backwards, the compactor will move in backwards direction. 9. Base Plate – Designed to compact sand, clay, and asphalt.  
Placing the lever in the middle (midway) will cause the
