Thickness of the layer to be compacted can be up to 200mm on good soil (100-150mm is ideal) also suitable for asphalt work. Make sure soil is slightly moist (not wet and not dry) throughout the layer. 6-10 passes with the machine advancing at its normal pace will usually give you optimum compaction results-avoid"over compaction". Ensure that the scraper bars are adjusted correctly and that there is no material build up between scrapers and machine chassis. Always run engine at full speed when doing compaction work.
Do's and Donts:
Avoid machine hitting against adjacent structures or rocks etc. Never operate machine on hard or solid surfaces, eg concrete, asphalt, etc when vibration is switched on. Ensure the dead mans handle is working correctly. Do not sit on the machine while it is operating. Stop the machine before reversing or forward movement
Turn On/Off switch off. Close fuel line.
Ensure petrol switch is off before refueling.

Do not smoke or use a cell phone whilst refueling.
Remove fuel cap and place in clean dry area within reach of the machine.
Pour the fuel into the tank.
Replace fuel cap and move fuel container.
Do not place any plastic bags around the fuel cap as this will close the breather hole in the cap.
