A compactor is an essential piece of equipment for most concrete workers today. How can a tamping rammer benefit your business? Not only can rammers make your job easier on site, but they can also save you a lot of time, produce a better end product, and increase your profit margins. We’ll start by explaining what rammers are for those who haven’t heard of them:
The purpose of a rammer is to compact the ground. The way it accomplishes this differs from how a plate compactor does it. In contrast to a compactor, which uses vibrations to settle dirt below, a rammer uses impact force to compress the soil. The upright design of rammers makes them ideal for hard-to-reach places where compactors may struggle. Due to their small footprints and powerful punch, they are easily maneuverable and can cover a lot of ground quickly.
Here are a couple reasons why rammers are great:
- The machines are slim and have a small footprint
- They are easily maneuverable thanks to their design
- They can compact more deeply than vibratory plate compactors
- Different materials can be compacted with them than with vibratory plate compactors
As a result, it’s easy to understand how a rammer will benefit your business. Your labor cost decreases if you are able to complete a job faster. Your profit margin for a job increases when your cost of labor decreases. Not only will your labor costs fall, but a trend will form from exceeding your consumers’ expectations. Your reputation as a quick and trustworthy contractor will bring you a broader audience and therefore more opportunities for new customers and repeat business.
