MVC-64E/EW — GENERAL INFORMATION  
Definition of Plate Compactor  
Frequency/Speed  
The Mikasa MVC-64E/EW is a walk-behind, plate compactor  
designed for the compaction of sand, mixed soils 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 compacting  
for road, embankments and reservoirs as well as backfilling for  
gas pipelines, water pipelines and cable installation work.  
The compactor's vibrating plate has a frequency of 5,600 vpm  
(vibrations per minute). The travel speed of the compactor is  
approximately 82 ft./minute (25 meters/minute).  
Engine  
The Mikasa MVC-64E/EW Plate Compactor is equipped with a  
ROBIN EX130D40040 gasoline engine.  
Controls  
The MVC-64E/W is small and lightweight. It can be easily  
handled by one person in confined areas. It has an accessible  
front-mounted vibrator assembly.The sealed belt cover keeps  
dirt and rocks away from the belt.  
Before starting the MVC-64E/EW Plate Compactor identify and  
understand the function of the controls and components as  
indicated Figure 3.  
Vibratory Plate  
WARNING  
The vibratory plate of the compactor produces low amplitude  
high frequency vibrations, designed to compact granular soils  
and asphalt.  
To avoid injuries and damage to the equipment, ALWAYS  
read and understand contents of operation manual before  
operating equipment.  
The resulting vibrations cause forward motion.The engine and  
handle are vibration isolated from the vibrating plate.
