Rammers are typically transported in a work truck or trailer with other equipment. They should be firmly tied down on a vehicle, and some models may need to be stored and transported vertically to avoid damaging some components. See the operator's manual for best practices.
A jumping jack compactor, or an impact rammer or jack rammer, is a walk-behind construction tool that compacts cohesive soils in smaller or narrower areas like trenches. Jumping jacks or rammers deliver consistent blows to the soil with a hydraulic "shoe" to compact the soil.
A trench rammer is a type of rammer designed explicitly for compacting cohesive soil in trenches. Construction and utility crews often use it to prepare the soil before pouring concrete or installing underground utilities. Trench rammers have a longer "shoe" than other rammers, which allows them to reach further down into the trench.
