Replacing the MVH-304 Series, the Mikasa MVH-306 Series reversible plate compactor generates 10,125 pounds of compaction force. The unit's new plate design, 18×34 inches in size, features wider-diameter steel piping on the engine protection frame for improved strength. A redesigned, sealed bottom belt cover keeps dirt and rocks away from the belt. At speeds to 75 fpm, the machines allow operators to compact up to 9,000 square feet per hour.
