Wacker Neuson is well known for its compaction equipment, particularly its rammers. Since the development of the first rammer by German engineer Herrmann Wacker in 1930, Wacker Neuson has continued to develop and broaden its rammer portfolio. Offering a range of gasoline four-stroke-, two-stroke-, diesel- and battery-driven rammers, Wacker Neuson is able to provide a product for every area of application.

Safety for the operator Wacker Neuson AS50e battery rammerFor applications in trenches and within buildings, the AS50e battery rammer provides operator safety through its 100% emission-free and noise-reduced performance. The battery can be removed without tools, so the operator can replace a discharged battery easily in a few simple steps. The runtime of the rammer is 30 continuous minutes which is usually sufficient to accomplish a full day’s work. Low operating costs are an additional advantage of this rammer, since the typical maintenance jobs of conventional rammers are not required with the battery-powered rammer.

Wacker Neuson’s two-stroke rammers also have very low emissions. The two-stroke models are driven by the WM80 engine that was specially designed and developed by Wacker Neuson, thanks to its catalytic converter, to fall well below all exhaust standard limits. A multi-stage air cleaner system cleans the intake air, thereby ensuring the long-term operational readiness of the rammer.

Similarly, the Wacker Neuson two-stroke gasoline vibratory rammers boast the lowest total emissions on the market. Four models are currently available: the BS50-2, BS60-2, BS50-2plus as well as the BS60-2plus. A special feature of 2plus-rammers is the extra-large oil tank that only requires a top up after 120 hours of operation and is available with a lockable cover, eliminating the risk of incorrect refueling.

Wacker Neuson's four-stroke rammers offer high stroke energy, percussion rate, and long shoe stroke. Features such as integrated oil protection with automatic shutdown provide additional safety and user-friendliness. The rammer’s air filter leads to three times longer replacement intervals, thereby extending its service life and keeping maintenance costs to a minimum. Both four-stroke-rammer models, BS50-4As and BS60-4As, are ideal for cohesive soils.

The DS70 diesel rammer boasts well-balanced weight distribution and compact dimensions. Like the four-stroke rammers, it is ideal for the compaction of cohesive, mixed and coarse-grained soils. Thanks to its low carbon emissions, it is also suited for work in trenches.
