Economical MBW GPX vibratory plates handle lots of jobs
| April 04, 2013
Featuring three models—the GP12, GP15 and GP18—the series delivers amplitudes up to .057 inches, centrifugal force up to 2,070 pound-feet and travel speeds of up to 75 feet per minute, and is capable of achieving 10-inch lift depths. The vibratory plates are available with the Honda GX120, Subaru Robin EX13 or Briggs 550 engine.
These economical vibratory plates have a suspension system that places shock mounts in a predominantly shear mode at the high amplitude front end of the plate, and a predominantly compressive mode at the low amplitude trailing end of the plate, reducing hand-arm vibration.
A one-piece exciter has a self-cleaning open base plate design. The plates range in weight from 129 to 143 pounds and are easy to lift and maneuver around the jobsite.
Options include a lift cage, transport wheel kit and neoprene paving pad.
