    Just bought a 200 lb vibrator motor for my Swenson 2 yard V-Box stainless spreader. Since I need to make a Backer Plate, can anyone give me an idea on 1) thickness and 2) how much larger than the motor base should it be? Thanks for the input.

    3/8____1/4 should be fine...well overkill.

    All the factory ones I've seen are usually the same size as the vibrator. If it was bigger I wouldn't see any issues with it.

    Thanks for the info. The knees will appreciate a few less trips to the top of the tire....
