New rammers from Atlas Copco
New hammers from Atlas Copco
The new Atlas Copco rammers in the 50kg and 60kg weight class have been completely redesigned for easier handling, more uptime and longer service life.
The LT5005 and LT6005 are powered by Honda engines and designed for compaction work in confined areas. One of the major changes is the slimmer design that facilitates handling close to walls, posts or in narrow trenches.
“The new design, in combination with reduced weight, truly improves handling and we kept the compaction efficiency on the same high level,” said Malin Löfgren, product line manager. “Operator safety is equally important. The effective vibration-absorbing construction of the handle keeps hand/arm vibration low.”
The new steering bow comes with rollers in the front and a single lifting point for easy and safe handling on the worksite. To prevent unnecessary wear to the shock absorbers an integral lock is activated during lifting and transport.
The new large air filter can be changed without using any tools. As an option it can also be fitted with an indicator showing when to change the filter. The indicator is reset by a push of a button. To assist in keeping track on service intervals an hour meter is now also available as an option.
“The use of reliable four-stroke engines for easy start-ups and low emissions is a given. The same goes for the throttle control, with three fixed positions, that prevents excessive wear to the clutch and saves fuel by eliminating the risk of leaving the throttle half open. The air breather is now an automatic function to facilitate operation,” concluded Löfgren.
