SAFETY INFORMATION  
COMPACTOR SAFETY  
DANGER  
WARNING  
„ DO NOT place hands or fingers inside engine  
compartment when engine is running.  
„ NEVER operate the equipment in an explosive  
atmosphere or near combustible materials.An  
explosion or fire could result causing severe  
bodily harm or even death.  
„ NEVER operate the engine with heat shields or  
guards removed.  
„ Keep fingers, hands hair and clothing away  
from all moving parts to prevent injury.  
WARNING  
„ 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.  
„ DO NOT remove the radiator cap while the  
engine is hot. High pressure boiling water will gush out  
of the radiator and severely scald any persons in the  
general area of the compactor.  
„ DO NOT remove the coolant drain plug  
while the engine is hot. Hot coolant will  
gush out of the coolant tank and severely  
scald any persons in the general area of  
the compactor.  
CAUTION  
„ NEVER lubricate components or attempt service on a  
running machine.  
NOTICE  
„ DO NOT remove the engine oil drain plug while the  
engine is hot. Hot oil will gush out of the oil tank and  
severely scald any persons in the general area of the  
compactor.  
„ ALWAYS keep the machine in proper running condition.  
„ Fix damage to machine and replace any broken parts  
immediately.  
CAUTION  
„ ALWAYS store equipment properly when it is not being  
used.Equipment should be stored in a clean, dry location  
out of the reach of children and unauthorized personnel.  
„ NEVER touch the hot exhaust manifold,  
muffler or cylinder.Allow these parts to cool  
before servicing equipment.  
ENGINE SAFETY  
DANGER  
NOTICE  
„ NEVER run engine without an air filter or with a dirty air  
filter.Severe engine damage may occur.Service air filter  
frequently to prevent engine malfunction.  
„ The engine fuel exhaust gases contain poisonous carbon  
monoxide. This gas is colorless and odorless, and can  
cause death if inhaled.  
„ NEVER tamper with the factory settings  
of the engine or engine governor. Damage  
to the engine or equipment can result  
if operating in speed ranges above the  
maximum allowable.  
„ The engine of this equipment requires an adequate  
free flow of cooling air. NEVER operate this equipment  
in any enclosed or narrow  
area where free flow of the  
air is restricted. If the air  
flow is restricted it will cause  
injury to people and property  
and serious damage to the  
equipment or engine.  
„ NEVER tip the engine to extreme angles during lifting as  
it may cause oil to gravitate into the cylinder head, making  
the engine start difficult.

SAFETY INFORMATION  
FUEL SAFETY  
DANGER  
BATTERY SAFETY (ELECTRIC START ONLY)  
DANGER  
„ DO NOT add fuel to equipment if it is placed inside truck  
bed with plastic liner. Possibility exists of explosion or  
fire due to static electricity.  
„ DO NOT drop the battery.There is a possibility that the  
battery will explode.  
„ DO NOT expose the battery to open flames,  
sparks, cigarettes, etc.The battery contains  
combustible gases and liquids. If these  
gases and liquids come into contact with a  
flame or spark, an explosion could occur.  
FUEL  
WARNING  
„ ALWAYS wear safety glasses when  
handling the battery to avoid eye irritation.  
The battery contains acids that can cause  
injury to the eyes and skin.  
FUEL  
„ Use well-insulated gloves when picking up  
the battery.  
„ ALWAYS keep the battery charged. If the battery is not  
charged, combustible gas will build up.  
„ DO NOT start the engine near spilled fuel or combustible  
fluids. Diesel fuel is extremely flammable and its vapors  
can cause an explosion if ignited.  
„ DO NOT charge battery if frozen. Battery can explode.  
When frozen, warm the battery to at least 61°F (16°C).  
„ ALWAYS refuel in a well-ventilated area, away from  
sparks and open flames.  
„ ALWAYS recharge the battery in a well-ventilated  
environment to avoid the risk of a dangerous concentration  
of combustible gases.  
„ ALWAYS use extreme caution when working with  
flammable liquids.  
„ If the battery liquid (dilute sulfuric acid)  
comes into contact with clothing or skin,  
rinse skin or clothing immediately with  
plenty of water.  
„ 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.  
„ If the battery liquid (dilute sulfuric acid) comes into  
contact with eyes, rinse eyes immediately with plenty  
of water and contact the nearest doctor or hospital to  
seek medical attention.  
„ Store fuel in appropriate containers, in well-ventilated  
areas and away from sparks and flames.  
CAUTION  
„ NEVER use fuel as a cleaning agent.

GENERAL INFORMATION  
Plate Compactor  
Frequency/Speed  
The Mikasa MVH-306D/DS 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 4400  
vpm (vibrations per minute).The forward and reverse travel speed  
of the compactor is approximately 75 ft./minute (23 meters/  
minute).  
Engine  
The Mikasa MVH-306D/DS Plate Compactor is equipped with  
either aYanmar L-70EE D (recoil start) or L-70EE DS (electric  
start) diesel engine.  
Vibratory Plates  
Controls  
The vibratory plates of the MVH-306D/DS produce low  
amplitude high frequency vibrations, designed to compact  
granular soils.  
Before starting the MVH-340DSB Plate Compactor, identify and  
understand the function of the controls and components as  
indicated in Figure 3.  
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.

Compactor Compo
Figure 4 illustrates the locati
MVH-306D/DS Reversible Pl
component is described below:  
8. Belt Cover – Remove this cover to gain access to the V-  
belts.NEVER run the compactor without theV-belt cover.If  
the V-belt cover is not installed, the possibility exist that  
your hand may get caught between the V-belt and clutch,  
thus causing serious injury and bodily harm.  
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.  
Placing the lever in the middle (midway) will cause the  
compactor not to move (neutral).  
9. Base Plate – Designed to compact sand, clay, and asphalt.  
10. Oil Reservoir – Fill with Shell Tellus Oil 46 or equivalent  
grade hydraulic oil.  
3. Handle Bar – When operating the compactor, this handle  
is to be in the downward position. When the compactor is  
to be stored, move the handle bar to the upright position.  
11. Vibration Case – Encloses the eccentric, gears and  
counter weights.  
12. Hydraulic Cylinder – Activated by moving the travel lever.  
The cylinder controls the direction of movement by the plate  
compactor.  
4. Guard Hook - Used to lift the machine with crane or other  
lifting device.  
5. Stopper - Locks the handle in place in the upward postion  
13. Shock Absorber – Protects plate compactor from damage  
for stowing.  
by absorbing vibration durring operation.  
6. Engine This plate compactor uses a YANMAR L-70EE  
D/DS diesel engine.Refer to the owner’s manual for engine  
information and related topics.  
14. Throttle Lever – Controls speed of the plate compactor.  
Place straight vertically to start, push fully counter-clockwise  
for full throttle and fully clockwise to stop plate compactor.  
7. Battery (Option) - This unit uses a 12-volt battery. See  
14. Ignition Switch (Option) – Provided for electric start  
maintenance of this manual for proper care of battery.
