Subaru’s new ER12 rammer engine is engineered exclusively for the demanding application of rammers. With specially designed components and overhead cam technology, this 3-hp, 4-stroke engine is lightweight, yet rugged and powerful, the maker says. Weighing just more than 20 pounds, the ER12 offers more power and up to 24-percent more output than similar competitive engines. The vertical cylinder design of the ER12 is slim and compact, and maintains a center of gravity to effectively transmit power to the ground. The recoil is integrated into the flywheel and blower housing, further enhancing balance and overall engine performance. The 120cc displacement ER12 engine has an output of 2.6 kW and is suitable for 60- to 80-kilogram-class rammers.

Multiquip offers the COMPAS compaction analyzing system for the Mikasa MVH306 and MVH406 Series reversible plate compactors to help contractors improve efficiency and maximize productivity while avoiding costly over-compaction. A series of LED lights indicates the progress made with each machine pass. As soil density changes, lights illuminate and inform the operator to either make additional passes or stop because optimum soil conditions have been attained for the specific plate compactor. Mikasa reversible plates feature ergonomically designed handles designed to minimize the vibration transferred to the operator. Removable extension plates allow the plate to be adapted for various trench applications.

MBW offers the GPX vibratory plate series, which includes the GP12, GP15 and GP18 models. It features a patent-pending suspension system that places shock mounts in a predominantly shear mode at the high-amplitude front end of the plate and a predominantly compressive mode at the low-amplitude trailing end of the plate. This system reduces hand arm vibration and also better isolates all upper mass components, including the engine, from vibrations produced by the machine’s exciter. With amplitudes up to .057 inches, centrifugal force up to 2,070 foot pounds and travel speed to 75 feet per minute, these plates are suited for use in confined areas of granular soils including sands, bank run, gravels and capable of achieving lift depths of up to 10 inches.

The Doosan plate compactor line of attachments feature a flat-top design allowing a “cap” to be added to the attachment based on the specific carrier being used. The PCX62, PCX114 and PCX220 plate compactors span the range of the DX140LC-3 through the DX520LC-3. Four outboard shock mounts distribute vibrations evenly while keeping the attachment level, improving compaction efficiency and extending component life. Standard flow controls prevent over-speeding, which can lead to poor compaction and reduced bearing life.
