Perhaps this is not what your looking for, but at least it may give you some ideas.
I don't like the hassle of hiring equipment, as I tend to want to do a bit, leave it, then do some more, so its not cost effective to keep hiring kit for odd 5 minute jobs.
I haven't used it for a few years, so its been 'stored' out back... It no longer has the handle fitted to another project, likewise with the electric motor which was a single phase 3/4hp 3,000RPM.
It was not easy to use, and not pleasant for long periods (5 - 10 minutes) as it is rather fierce with its jumping up and down. Yes it could have been refined, but as it was only for short term work, it did it very well. It was a two man operation as one is needed to hand on and guide it around and the second operates to power connection (no dead-man switch on the handle).
The motor sat on top, on the hinged platform which drove a shaft mounted on two bearings. The 'vibration' was created by a 2" wide bit of 4" round steel with an off-set hole for the drive shaft. Ideally the bearings should have been as close as possible, either side of the off-set weight to avoid and shaft flex. I exdpect had I used it long term the shaft would have fractured and fell to bits. All the fixings either had nyloc nuts or double nuts to avoid them being shaken lose.
It's ugly, unrefined, but did the work it was built for.
Now that I know such a beast works, I do have another project which I'm collecting bits for. I've purchased a 4 foot wide box scraper/blade with tangs to maintain my drive. The drive gets heavily compacted, but when it rains pot holes grow very quickly due to the 40 ton lorries using it. The intention is to mount a 'vibration head' down near the blade to help the cutting action of the tangs and blade, thus making it easier to pull along and break the compacted ground (mainly rocks and gravel). Its an idea I got from a utility company moling some cables in to the ground as the moling head had a vibration unit on it to make it easier to work the mole through the ground by vibrating its way through the soil which could also contain rocks and gravel). I have designs in my head, but they can change, depending on what freebies I can obtain.
