FAQs About Tampers & Jumping Jack Rammers

United Rentals offers an impressive collection of tampers and jumping jack rammers for rent, designed for compacting cohesive or mixed soils in confined areas. Ideal for use in smaller, limited spaces, our jumping jack rentals can compact sand, soil and dirt tightly together, reducing air voids and enhancing the load-bearing capacity of the ground. This heavy-duty vibratory rammer is gas powered and often used for base preparation for concrete work, backfill compaction for pipeline and cable trenches, as well as asphalt patching for repair work. We also feature this air rammer tamper, also known as a jumping jack rammer, that can reach up to 1,600 blows per minute (BPM).

FAQs
What is the difference between a rammer and plate compactor?

Tamping rammers compact soil through impact, perfect for smaller spaces and clay soil. Alternatively, plate compactors use vibration to compact larger areas, making them better suited for gravel, sand or silt. Ultimately, the decision between a rammer and plate compactor depends on the unique requirements of your project and the type of soil you are working with.

How much do jumping jack rammers weigh?

The weight of jumping jack rammers varies depending on make and model specifications. Jumping jack rammers, also known as jumping jack compactors or vibratory rammers, typically weigh anywhere from 100 to 200 pounds. However, there are heavy-duty models that can weigh upwards of 300 pounds.

How deep will a jumping jack rammer compact?

Depending on factors such as soil type, compactor size and weight, jumping jack rammers can compact anywhere between 8 and 24 inches. We offer light-duty models, which typically reach compaction depths of 8 to 12 inches and are ideal for smaller jobs, like backfilling. Additionally, we offer heavy-duty rammers that can compact up to 24 inches of depth.
