MBW has tamed one of the industry’s most disliked and physically abusive compaction tools. Pneumatic Tampers (also known as “Pole Tampers”, “Pogo Sticks” and “Bouncing Betties”) produce hand/arm vibration levels that rank among the highest in the industry. Periodic exposure to excessive vibration is known to be a contributing factor in the development of white finger, carpel tunnel syndrome, arthritis and other chronic ailments.

The ERGO-TAMP™ reduces hand arm vibration up to 70%, allowing for some variation as conditions of compaction change. The vibration absorption system easily handles the range of amplitudes typical of pneumatic tampers and is cooled by a constant flow of compressed air through its working mechanism.

By rendering the pneumatic tamper tolerable from an operational point-of-view, users are less prone to terminate the compaction effort before reaching a satisfactory geo-technical result. An improved compaction effort results in a lower incidence of pavement failure. Reduced hand/arm vibration results in less wear and tear on the personnel who get the job done.

Optional trigger guard prevents accidental tool activation.
