Chicago Pneumatic recently launched MS 595 and MS 695, the new tampers range to address productivity and manoeuvrability challenges in compaction tasks. The new range, its most compact and lightweight range of tampers in its 100 year history, provides users with powerful, highly manoeuvrable tampers plus, the addition of a new 6” plate model, alongside the 9 and 11” models, allows for work to be carried out in smaller, more enclosed spaces, providing greater comfort and productivity.
“We have designed our new tampers range to provide enhanced efficiency whilst still keeping the tried and tested, rugged reliability people expect from CP. Despite incorporating a more powerful engine the lightweight tampers are easy to transport whilst the reduction in noise and the ergonomic design provide additional comfort and safety,” says Andrzej Mrozinski, Product Manager, Chicago Pneumatic.
With a forward-leaning design, the new tampers offer superior control of the tamper, allowing users to walk-behind while the momentum carries the tamper forward. Additional features such as the easy-access control lever enable the operator to switch to idle with just one hand. The compact, slim line design make the new tampers ideal for narrow trench work with the ability to tightly move around objects.
