Introduced into the UK last week, the Ammann ATR 30 rammer is the lightest Ammann rammer on the market. With a weight of 29 kg it can be handled very easily, especially in trenches and on job sites where having an easily maneuvered rammer is an advantage.
The ATR 30 is powered by a small Honda GX35, 4 stroke petrol engine and comes with a standard 130mm wide foot. Two further shoe sizes of 100 mm and 200 mm are also available and switching only requires the removal of 4 screws.
Despite the size of the foot and weight of the rammer compaction results remain high.
