Tamper Rammer Compactor


The rammer is an important member of the light compaction tool family used to apply brute ‘percussive’ force to consolidate material. The machine’s foot is responsible for the shearing action that breaks bonds between soil particles and displaces the water and air trapped between soil layers. Sites with confined spaces particularly benefit from rammers on a variety of soil types.

If you want quality rammers for light compaction, base preparation for asphalt patching and trench work, look no further than MEIWA.
