Multiquip’s three new MTX-Series rammers incorporate an anti-vibration system (AVS) which cuts vibration to the user for increased productivity on the job site while reducing the risk of injury caused by operator fatigue, according to the manufacturer.

The MTX-70, MTX-80 and MTX-90 gasoline-powered models deliver up to 3,500 lbs. (1,600 kg) of impact force for effective compaction of cohesive and mixed soils. Each rammer can work in trenches, around retaining walls, when solidifying bases for concrete slabs and footings and in confined areas.

The MTX-70 delivers 2,900 lbs. (1,300 kg) of impact force on 645 to 695 blows a minute. Fueled by a 3-hp (2.2 kW) Honda GX100 engine, this model weighs 146 lbs. (66 kg).

The MTX-80 generates 3,150 lbs. (1,400 kg) of centrifugal force and is driven by a 3.5-hp (2.6 kW) Robin EH-12-2D engine. The rammer weighs 179 lbs. (81 kg).

The hardest hitter in the series, the MTX-90 generates 3,500 lbs. (1,600 kg) of impact force on 660 to 700 blows per minute. It also is powered by a Robin EH-12-2D engine.

All three MTX Series rammers feature recoil start, travel speeds of up to 36 ft. (12 m) per minute, and diaphragm carburetors that allow operators to transport the unit without flooding the engine. The shoe width is 11.2 by 13.4 in. (28 by 34 cm) on each model.
