Pneumatic tampers use compressed air to create powerful, rapid impacts that compact soil or other materials. The tamper's piston strikes the surface, transferring energy and effectively compacting the area.
Pneumatic tampers are great for various soil types, including cohesive, granular and mixed soils. The specific tamper model and size needed may vary depending on the soil's characteristics and compaction requirements.
Selecting the right pneumatic tamper depends on project size, soil type and compacting requirements. United Rentals' knowledgeable staff can help you choose the correct tamper based on your specific needs. Contact your local branch today.
