    My plate is vibrating to the point that you can't hold the handle. What can I do or adjust to control this problem?

    It is turning top speed. I would first think maybe a belt is slipping. I assume we arent talking about the hop it gets when youve reached full compaction.

    I believe you may have the wrong forum. If you read the warning lable on the bottle it says this could happen for 8-12 hours afterwards. Sounds like you need to have it examined by a doctor and get something to remedy that.....
