Watch: New Light Compaction Lineup


Construction Worker Packing Dirt Using A Bobcat Rammer


Bobcat rammers are ideal for precise compaction work in small areas or places tough to reach with larger compaction equipment. They are highly maneuverable and most effective on cohesive soil types such as clays. 

Our rammers deliver best-in-class balance that directs the machines’ compaction power to the targeted surface area. The result is greater hitting force with less effort. 

At the surface level or in trenches, Bobcat rammer applications are virtually endless. (Models: R60P and R68P.)
