MBW has redesigned its line of non-hydraulic reversible vibratory plates, introducing them as the GPR 65/68 series. Designed for narrow utility trench work or confined areas such as tight footing or foundation work where turning space is limited, the plates are dependable and economic alternatives for a variety of compaction needs. Powered by 5.5-hp Honda engines and featuring dual eccentric design for 6,000 pounds of solid centrifugal force, the plates have a fingertip shifting mechanism that permits directional changes at full speed. Double isolated shock mounts protect the operator by insulating the engine and engine deck, reducing hand/arm vibration. A roll cage with a center lift point protects the engine and makes transporting the compact units more convenient.

Through the use of a patented oil-injection system, Wacker engineers have created an oil-injected rammer that outperforms all other oil-injected and 4-cycle rammers. The rammer, which meets EPA's 2004 engine requirements, runs up to 65 hours on a single tank of oil, offers a 120 to 1 fuel/oil ratio, eliminates premixing gas and oil, prevents spark plug fouling and carbon buildup, prevents fumes, smoke and straight gas damage to engine. The new oil-injected rammers are powered by Wacker's exclusive WM 80 engine.

The RV series rammer offers greater productivity with a low center of gravity and balance. The five bearings, precision machined gear drive and twin sets of fully encapsulated double springs provide harder impacts in all weight classes. The patented shock-absorbing ferro-silicon rubber bellows sends the impact into the ground where it belongs and keeps it from coming back up into the machine for longer component life. Coupled with the heavy doughnut style handle isolators for safety and productivity, vibration is kept away from the most important component — the operator.
