Ramming with less vibration

Multiquip’s three new MTX-Series rammers aim to take the tough work, the fatigue, and the strain out of compaction.Multiquip’s three new MTX-Series rammers aim to take the tough work, the fatigue, and the strain out of compaction.

The MTX-70, MTX-80 and MTX-90 gasoline-powered models deliver up to 3,500 pounds of impact force for effective compaction of cohesive and mixed soils. Each rammer excels in trench work, around retaining walls, when solidifying bases for concrete slabs and footings, and in confined areas. Each model also incorporates an antivibration system.

The MTX-70 delivers 2,900 pounds of impact force on 645 to 695 blows a minute, and it is fueled by a 3-horsepower Honda GX100 engine. The MTX- 80 generates 3,150 pounds of centrifugal force and is driven by a 3.5-horsepower Robin EH-12-2D engine. The MTX-90 generates 3,500 pounds of impact force on 660 to 700 blows per minute and is also powered by a Robin EH-12-2D engine.

All three MTX Series rammers feature recoil start, travel speeds of up to 36 feet per minute, and diaphragm carburetors that allow operators to transport the unit without flooding the engine.
