The Wacker BS 50-4s and BS 60-4s 4-cycle rammers offer low oil shutoff to protect the engine. The electronic capacitive sensor switch is mounted into the bottom of the crankcase. Upon starting the units, should the sensor detect no oil or low oil, a red, flashing light signals the operator and the engine will shut off within about 10 seconds. The rammer is powered by the WM 90 2.8-hp engine that is designed to withstand the vibration of a rammer application. The BS 50-4s weighs 137 pounds and hits with 2,645 pounds per blow at a rate of 680 bpm and is capable of achieving a compaction depth of up to 18 inches.

Atlas Copco Construction Tools

Atlas Copco's HC 409 and HC 920 hydraulic compactor attachments are built for a variety of soil compaction projects as well as driving and extracting sheeting and posts. Accepting a maximum hydraulic flow of 20 gpm at 2,200 psi of pressure, the HC 409 delivers an 8,000-pound impulse force and produces 2,100 cycles per minute. To reduce problems associated with excessive hydraulic input, the plates come with a control valve designed to regulate the input flow and the amount of pressure traveling to the hydraulic motor.

Stone Construction Equipment

The WolfPac 6100 double-drum vibration asphalt roller is designed for confined area asphalt compaction of base, binder and finish coats. The design allows the operator to direct the vibration to both the front and rear drums. The operator can activate the vibration to the specific drum or drum combination through a specially designed electro-hydraulic circuit combined with a custom-designed manifold. At 47 inches wide with 6,518 pounds of impact, the roller is built for roads and shoulders, commercial and industrial foundations, parking lots, driveways and other confined areas.

MBW's universal vibratory platform is designed to raise productivity in trench compaction. The boom-mounted vibratory platform can be fitted with an assortment of vibratory wheels or vibratory plates, depending on soil type and work area constraints. The universal vibratory platform also brings versatility to trench compaction. Because vibration and down pressure are variably coupled, the full range of soil types are handled, and plates and wheels can be quickly interchanged on site.
