How’s and What’s about Tamping Rammer
First of almost all, what should all of us call this machine that is used to compact the floor all
over the entire world? In common with several construction machines the rammer offers
acquired many titles over the years. At Fairport we’ve got the actual name right. The initial
machines were developed in 1922 by one of the companies from Fairport’s proud history.
The actual Benjo Mechanical Rammer became the Benjo Portable Power Rammer and since
the Warsop Benjo Rammer, it made a new world-wide market for compaction equipment.
At Fairport we have now call it the “Tamping Rammer”, maintaining the original name and
adding an additional adjective but we all don’t mind just what you call it ! Others call it the
Trench Rammer but its use isn’t restricted to ramming trenches, it’s good for compacting
patch repairs to roads, footings and building foundations as nicely. However the government
bodies and officialdom that set the standards for compaction have taken to calling it the
“Vibrotamper” or “Vibro-tamper”. So next time you’re given any specification that calls for
“compaction with the vibro-tamper”, you know they actually mean a Tamping Rammer”.
Old-timers might call it a “Jumping Jack Rammer” a name that harks back again to earlier
Warsop / Fairport incarnations that basically did jump.
Whatever you call them, Tamping Rammers are usually hand guided, engine driven machines
for compaction regarding soil, sand, bass speaker-base, hardcore as well as asphalt. (All these
types of materials have various names as well). The engine sits on top of a line which drives
the foot up and also down at high speed and with numerous force. The pillar and foot will
certainly fit nicely down in to the bottom of a trench so which’s why some call it a “Trench
Trench Rammer? Too versatile for Trenches
The Tamping Rammer is really one of people indispensable pieces of equipment for
highways as well as general ground works. Every time a material needs compacting at ground
floor the Rammer finds its place. Upon small jobs and trenches that’s often the just
equipment that can perhaps do the career. For larger work it’s the perfect companion to large
compaction equipment which can’t get in to all the nook and cranny. The job may be
patching roads, putting in street furniture, building foundations, hard landscaping or concrete
bases. The Tamping Rammer is with regard to so much a lot more than pure trench work.
