Engine vibration on my Supersplit.

That looks like the normal shakes to me, mine does the same and a friend's with the Robin engine does as well.
I actually have a single cylinder Kubota diesel mounted low on mine and it seems to shake the table about the same as yours.

I added two layers of 3/8" rubber conveyor belting on the front leg, as wide as the front foot. Bolted on with the existing 4 bolt holes such that it forms a circle that flattens out mostly with weight on it. The rubber is then the shape of a folded or installed staple with the bolt heads inside the "circle" of rubber. If that's not clear I can find or take a picture?

This helped some with the table shaking and all around seems like a good idea even if your machine didn't shake.

Is this the same unit you had to adjust all the holes due to mfg hole locations/jig movements? You're a more patient man than me.

Is it possible the orientation of the engine contributes to the vibration? That is the piston of my engine moves horizontal, with the pump shaft comes out of the bottom. Very little vibration. Are others, the piston moving vertically?

Yeah, it is , but with vibration I think I might be overreacting

There is no pump, it’s a kinetic splitter
