Every rammer is designed to offer fuel efficiency and the LT 5005 9″ is no different. The LT 5005 9″ weighs 62kgs and has a plate width of 230mm.
High centrifugal force and speed contribute to deep and effective compaction. The slimmer design facilitates handling close to walls, posts or in narrow trenches. Atlas Copco Rammers are versatile compaction tools developed for work on cohesive and granular soils, e.g. for repair and improvements to trenches, ditches, backfills and foundations. They are easy to handle in every stage of operation and reliable in all conditions – and work equally well regardless of when and how often they are used.
LT Rammers have the power and speed necessary to compact clay and silt. You get the quality you deserve and you get the job done in time. Even when conditions are tough.
Customers put their trust in you for great compaction. Our job is to provide the tools that help you deliver. Together we create quality.
We are all about making things easier for you. That’s why our rammers are suitable for work on both cohesive and granular soils. They are easy to handle in all stages of operation and it doesn’t matter how often or in what condition they are used. The rammer
is there for you when you need it.
LT Rammers have the power and speed necessary to compact clay and silt – the toughest of mother earth’s soils. Your customers get the quality they deserve and you get the job done in time. Even when conditions are tough.
We want to help boost your workflow in several ways. The automatic air breather system makes start-ups more convenient. Fixed throttle positions facilitate handling and reduce wear.
To help you get closer to walls, posts or wherever work is taking you, we have made our rammers slimmer.
Quality components and renowned engines give you uptime.
But when it comes to creating stable and safe compaction, your skill is still the most important factor. By designing for reduced vibration in hands and arms we help you stay concentrated and sharp for the whole working day. After all, the instrument is nothing without the artist.
Soil has been around for millions of years and is created by force of nature. Here’s how you tame mother nature’s upper crust.
Clay particles stick together and you need high impact force to get the air out. Proper moisture is important when compacting. Wet
clay can be moulded and dry clay becomes very hard and may crack under pressure. The LT Rammers are able to transmit the high
pressures and shear forces necessary to compact clay at or below optimum water content.
Silt is not as cohesive as clay, but still needs proper water content for good compacting. The cohesive soils have the smallest particles
of all soils. Silt particles are larger than in clay but they are still small enough to require high energy for deep compacting. A rammer is the best choice for compacting silt.
For sand and gravel you can achieve high-density compaction in either a dry or saturated state. The level of compaction depends more on grading than moisture. Too much compaction of sand and gravel is like beating a concrete wall with a sledgehammer.
It can crush the material and reduce the load bearing capacity.
Some soils are tougher than others. To beat them you need high impact force and speed.
Clay and silt are the toughest soils mother nature has to offer. To handle them you need high impact force and speed – and that’s what our LT5005 and LT6005 delivers. Equipped with the purpose built Honda GXR120 engine it will give you all the force you need. Of course in combination with superb control, low noise and emission.
Start-up is always easy, even if you use your rammer irregular, and the engines are well protected against dirt and contamination.
To prevent excessive wear to the shock absorbers, you can use a trolley for lifting and transportation. Other useful features for moving
and storing include the rollers on the steering bar and the lifting handle on the foot. The fuel tank is tightly sealed to prevent the risk of leakage in case the machine needs to be laid down during transport.
Slimmer design makes you faster and more accurate when working close to walls, posts and in narrow trenches. Easy steering helps as well.
The LT5005 and LT6005 are easier to handle than their predecessors thanks to slightly less weight. And because of a combination of high centrifugal force and speed they still deliver the same deep compaction.
Service saves you time and money. Thanks to smart design and high quality components maintenance is no hassle.
All service points are easy to reach and most service work can be done on site. The large air filter can be switched without using any tools and fuel filter may be replaced even with a full tank. For increased uptime an air filter indicator is now available as option. The indicator turns red when it is time to switch filter and can be reset with a simple push of a button. The optional hour meter helps you keep track of service intervals.
Use original parts and do regular servicing for less downtime and longer service life. To make things easy for you we provide a service kit with the most common parts in one box.
