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  
l
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.  
„ ALWAYS disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal  
before performing service on the equipment.  
„ DO NOT smoke around or near the  
equipment. Fire or explosion could result  
from fuel vapors or if fuel is spilled on a  
hot engine.  
„ ALWAYS keep battery cables in good working condition.  
Repair or replace all worn cables.

GENERAL INFORMATION  
Definition of Plate Compactor  
Frequency/Speed  
The Mikasa MVC77 Series 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 range between  
5,800 vpm (vibrations per minute).The forward and reverse travel  
speed of the compactor is approximately 23 meters/minute (75  
ft./minute).  
Engine  
The Mikasa MVC77 Series Plate Compactor is equipped with  
either a Honda or Robin air cooled, 4-cycle gasoline engine.  
The engine drives an eccentric weight at a high speed to develop  
a compaction force.  
Vibratory Plates  
The vibratory plates of the compactor produce low amplitude  
high frequency vibrations, designed to compact granular soils  
and asphalt.  
Controls  
Before starting the MVC77 Series Plate Compactor identify and  
understand the function of the controls and components as  
indicated on page 13 (Figure 1).  
The resulting vibrations cause forward motion.The engine and  
handle are vibration isolated from the vibrating plate.

INITIAL SERVICING  
6. Choke Lever – Used in the starting of a cold engine, or in  
cold weather conditions. The choke enriches the fuel  
mixture.  
The engine (Figure 2) must be checked for proper lubrication and  
filled with fuel prior to operation. Refer to the manufacturers Engine  
manual for instructions & details of operation and servicing.  
7. Air Cleaner – Prevents dirt and other debris from entering  
the fuel system. Remove wing-nut on top of air filter  
cannister to gain access to filter element.  
1. Fuel Filler Cap – Remove this cap to add unleaded  
gasoline to the fuel tank. Make sure cap is tightened  
securely. DO NOT over fill.  
NOTICE  
WARNING  
Operating the engine without an air filter, with a damaged air  
filter, or a filter in need of replacement will allow dirt to enter  
the engine, causing rapid engine wear.  
Add fuel to the tank only when the engine is  
stopped and has cooled down. In the event  
of a fuel spill, DO NOT attempt to start the  
engine until the fuel residue has been  
completely wiped up and the area  
surrounding the engine is dry.  
8. Spark Plug – Provides spark to the ignition system. Set  
spark plug gap to 0.6 - 0.7 mm (0.028 - 0.031 inch) for  
HONDA engine, and 0.5 - 0.6 mm (0.020 - 0.024 inch) for  
ROBIN engine. Clean spark plug once a week.

2. Throttle Lever – Used to adjust engine RPM speed (lever  
advanced forward SLOW, lever back toward operator  
FAST).  
9. Muffler Used to reduce noise and emissions.  
WARNING  
3. Engine ON/OFF Switch – ON position permits engine  
Engine components can generate extreme  
heat.To prevent burns, DO NOT touch these  
areas while the engine is running or  
immediatelyafteroperating. NEVER operate  
the engine with the muffler removed.
