World of Concrete, Las Vegas (January 16, 2014) – Multiquip, a diverse manufacturer and supplier of world class quality products and equipment solutions, is pleased to present new compaction products at the 2014 World of Concrete in Las Vegas.

The Multiquip reversible plate line receives an updated look with the introduction of the MVH308, MVH408 and MVH508 series compactors. These heavy-duty compactors feature new styling - a fold-out roll cage allows service access while providing better protection in the plate - while maintaining the MQ Mikasa reputation for reliable performance. These new models will all be equipped with a combination hour meter/ tachometer to allow technicians to track service intervals.

The top selling MVC88 series forward plate compactors also received updates heading into 2014. A new casting integrates the eccentric housing and baseplate producing a lower center of gravity and resulting in a faster travel speed. An optional, newly designed, wheel kit stays on the plate while not in use and helps transport the plate on smooth surfaces. An hour meter/tachometer will be included for the first time on this model.

The MQ Mikasa MRH601DS is a new walk-behind tandem roller powered by a Kubota diesel engine designed to meet contractor expectations for dependability and ease of use. With a 25.6” drum width and 2,428 pounds of centrifugal force, this roller design is compact and powerful enough to handle the toughest asphalt and soil applications. Operators and service technicians will appreciate additional features such as the hour meter for measuring runtime, the parking brake for placement stability and a horn and light switch for job-site safety.

“At Multiquip, we have a successful track record of designing products that offer both quality and reliability to our customers,” said Torsten Erbel, vice president product management, engineering and customer support for Multiquip. “We are anticipating that our newest line of MQ Mikasa compaction models will meet and exceed our customers’ expectations and continue to provide the dependable performance that Multiquip is known for.”

Multiquip will be exhibiting these compaction products at the 2014 World of Concrete show in Las Vegas, at booth #C4803 in Central Hall and at #O30220 in the Silver Lot outside.
