Our Tamping - Rammers are versatile compacting machines available in a variety of power sources.
"Jumping Jack" or "Ground Pounder" style rammers work by aggressively applying consecutive impacts to the surface of soil in order to level the uneven soil surface, to compact the soil uniformly so that the void among soil particles are minimized and to increase the dry density with moisture in the soil removed. Rammers are designed to compact loose soils and gravel to prevent settling and to provide a firm, solid base for the placement of footings, concrete slabs, foundations, gas piping works, water pipe works and cable backfill works, etc.
Be cautious operating a rammer not to use it: to drive pile foundations, on soil already excessively compacted, or steep inclines. An unbalanced rammer can be hazardous to operate.
Tamping Rammers are suitable for compacting cohesive clay, gravels, and for patching work on asphalt, etc.
