Multiquip expands compaction line to include reversible plate

MQ Mikasa MVH508GH compactor

Multiquip has expanded its compaction line with the MQ Mikasa MVH508GH, gasoline powered reversible plate.  

This compactor gives contractors another engine option at the top end of Multiquip's reversible plate lineup. Producing 13,489 pounds of centrifugal force, it has a working width of 26-inches using standard extension plates.

The MVH508GH is powered by an easy starting Honda GX390 gasoline fitted with cyclonic air filtration to withstand harsh work environments. A proven hydraulic drive system ensures smooth directional control and consistent, reliable performance on the job.  The wrap-around shroud protects the engine both in the trench and during transportation. Its swing-open design provides access to key service points for simplified maintenance.

"There are many factors in selecting equipment for a job," said Torsten Erbel, Multiquip Senior Director of Product Management. "Performance and reliability are key decision points - but engine selection is equally important.  MQ Mikasa reversible plates are known for the superior performance and outstanding reliability. Now we're giving contractors more options with a gasoline version of our largest reversible plate."
