Chicago Pneumatic

The Chicago Pneumatic CP 0003 and CP 0004 backfill tampers are designed to compact soil around existing infrastructure, such as foundations, and to compact backfill in trenches. The CP 0003 weighs 30 pounds, has a length of 4.3 feet and air consumption of 133 gpm. The CP 0004 weighs 42 pounds and air consumption of 206 gpm. The butts on both tampers are secured to the lower end of the piston rod. Models with an aluminum butt are held with a clamp screw for quick, easy replacement. A valve in the back head of the assembly controls the reciprocating movement of the piston while the hand valve controls the airflow. Both backfill tamper models can be easily operated by one person and are suited for use by trenching companies, general contractors, municipalities, cable layers, utilities and more.

General Equipment Co.

The MDF35 long-reach air tool from General Equipment Co. is designed for a variety of applications including floor tile removal, mastics, adhesives and general concrete, and stripping material buildups. The MDF35 uses an internal valving mechanism that allows the piston to deliver increased kinetic energy per blow over competitive products, the maker says. Weighing 18.5 pounds and equipped with a 60-inch whip hose, the MDF35 requires a flow rate of 11 cfm at 90 psi and produces 3,100 bpm. The tool offers an ergonomically designed throttle valve with protective enclosure and a heavy-duty tool-changing device intended to minimize the harmful effects of concrete dust and dire accumulation.
