Stone Construction Equipment, Inc.’s Silver Fox series of Forward Plates consists of eight models including a plate designed specifically for optimum performance on asphalt – the SFA3500.

Models in addition to the SFA3500 include a small 13” wide SFP2200 / SFP2200A and the popular all-purpose SFP3000 / SFP3000A, the all-purpose professional SFP4000 / SFP4000A and for larger dirt jobs the SFP5100. All models are available with a variety of engines – Honda, Robin, Briggs and Stratton or Diesel engines – for compacting all types of surfaces – asphalt, dirt, granular soils, sand and paving stones. The eight models can be used for a variety of compaction jobs – foundations, sidewalks, landscaping or asphalt patching and finishing.

Smart design features include:

A forward-mounted eccentric and a 15o ramped leading edge produces exceptionally fast forward travel speeds and optimum gradeability.  

A patented one-piece base plate integrated with the extra-large eccentric housing dissipates internal heat over the plate, cooling the oil and the eccentric bearings while heating the plate surface for smooth asphalt compaction.  Cooling the oil also extends bearing life.

A synchronized drive system provides better energy transfer between the engine and eccentric. The Stone exclusive premium Kevlar® belt, eccentric, innovative offset eccentric sheave, heavy-duty centrifugal clutch and engine all operate in unison to increase compacting performance.

The self-cleaning base plate virtually eliminates dirt build-up for easier maintenance. 

An extra large 13 qt.  removable water tank is easy to take to a faucet for fill-ups.

A patented water system directs an even coat of water for the entire base surface.  It is connected to the water tank with a Stone exclusive SnapTek™ quick-coupler.

A roll cage, with central lift points, to protect the engine and components.

Easy access to the engine and eccentrics by slipping off the water tank and removing the belt cover. Four common wrenches and a screwdriver are all that is required for engine and base plate service.

The SFA3500 model’s geometry, placement of the eccentrics and vpms combine to provide more even asphalt compaction, smoother finishes and greater productivity.  With a larger effective contact surface and a more centrally located eccentric, the SFA3500 floats across the asphalt with a compaction force of 3500 lbs. It features the removable water tank, SnapTek quick-coupler and a custom sprinkler system to continually coat the base plate with a sheet of water to reduce asphalt sticking.

The SFP2200 and SFP2200A models have a compaction force of 2200 lbs. The SFP3000 and SFP3000A all-purpose plates have a compaction force of 3000 lbs.  4000 lbs of compaction force are generated by the SFP4000 and SFP4000A models. The heavy-duty, high productivity SFP5100 dirt plate provides 5100 lbs of eccentric force.

Stone Silver Fox forward plate compactors as backed by an unprecedented same-day parts response, a one year limited plate warranty and an two year warranty on Stone eccentric bearings.
