Bomag brings out two low-weight vibratory tampers
Two new vibratory tampers with low operating weights designed for use in applications such as trench construction, utility and cable backfill compaction, landscaping and small repair jobs, have been launched by Bomag.
The BT65 "is ideal for jobs with the highest compaction demands and tough requirements of the Australian market", Bomag says. The unit is powered by a Honda GX100 4-cycle engine with recoil starter and has a maximum travel speed of 20 metres per minute.
Weighing in at a more heavy-duty 81kg, the BT80D features a Yanmar L 48 Diesel engine and a 330mm-wide reinforced foot.
Both tampers include a cover and guards for engine protection, dual air and fuel filter systems and an hour meter and tachometer with integrated service indicator. They also feature a low oil alert system, easy access fuel and engine shutdown switch, splash oil lubrication, high-strength polyethylene tamping shoe with steel wear plate and a corrosion-free plastic fuel tank.
Operators will be happy to know that each model is equipped with a steering handle that is height-adjustable and vibration-isolated.
The tampers are available through Tutt Bryant Equipment.
