MVH-402GHB — RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION  
NEVER disconnect any "emergency or safety devices".  
These devices are intended for operator safety. Disconnection  
of these devices can cause severe injury, bodily harm or even  
death! Disconnection of any of these devices will void all  
warranties.  
ALWAYS know the location of the nearest first aid kit.  
Loading and Unloading (Crane)  
Before lifting, make sure that machine parts (hook and  
vibration insulator) are not damaged and screws are not  
loosened or lost.  
In emergencies always know the location of the  
nearest phone or keep a phone on the job site.  
Also know the phone numbers of the nearest  
ambulance, doctor and fire department. This  
information will be invaluable in the case of an  
emergency.  
Always make sure crane or lifting device has been properly  
secured to the hook of guard frame on compactor.  
NEVER lift the machine while the engine is running.  
Use adequate lifting cable (wire or rope) of sufficient strength.  
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,  
down a drain or into any water source.

MVH-402GHB — FEATURES  
Plate Compactor  
Frequency/Speed  
The Mikasa MVH-402GHB 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 75.5 ft./minute (23 meters/  
minute).  
Engine  
The Mikasa MVH-402GHB Plate Compactor is equipped with a  
HONDA GX390K1 gasoline engine.  
Controls  
Vibratory Plates  
Before starting the MVH-402GHB Plate Compactor, identify and  
understand the function of the controls and components as  
indicated in Figure 3.  
The vibratory plates of the MVH-402GHB 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.
