What variable speed controller do I need for vibrator motor?

I have just purchased a concrete vibrator motor. I need a variable speed controller for this motor. Any suggestion is much appreciated.

Your amazon link shows it to have two different speed controllers, optional, but available.

Yes, I did find the link in the Amazon's comment section. The funny thing is, the controller cost twice the price of the motor. So, I was looking at this one from Amazon. I. hope this one works.

That inexpensive one will probably not work correctly.
It's a triac based speed controller and will work fine for brush type devices.

The one the company recommends is a different type of controller.
Vibrator variable control.
