DANGER  
„ The engine fuel exhaust gases contain poisonous carbon  
monoxide. This gas is colorless and odorless, and can  
cause death if inhaled.  
„ DO NOT add fuel to equipment if it is placed inside truck  
bed with plastic liner. Possibility exists of explosion or  
fire due to static electricity.  
„ The engine of this equipment  
requires an adequate free flow  
of cooling air.NEVER operate  
this equipment in any enclosed  
or narrow area where free flow  
of the air is restricted.If the air  
flow is restricted it will cause

before servicing equipment.  
„ DO NOT fill the fuel tank while the engine is running  
or hot.  
„ DO NOT overfill tank, since spilled fuel could ignite if it  
comes into contact with hot engine parts or sparks from  
the ignition system.  
NOTICE  
„ NEVER run engine without an air filter or with a dirty air  
filter.Severe engine damage may occur.Service air filter  
frequently to prevent engine malfunction.  
„ Store fuel in appropriate containers, in well-ventilated  
areas and away from sparks and flames.

GENERAL INFORMATION  
Definition of Tamping Rammer  
CAUTION  
The Mikasa MTR40FTamping Rammer is a powerful compacting  
tool capable of applying a tremendous force in consecutive  
impacts to a soil surface. Its applications include soil compacting  
for backfilling for gas pipelines, water pipelines and cable  
installation work.  
Before starting operation check the lifting  
handle to:  
1. Make sure that there is no damage on the bolts.  
The impact force of the MTR40F levels and uniformly compacts  
voids between soil particles to increase dry density.  
2. Make sure that there is no crack or breakage on handle.  
Circular motion is converted to create impact force.The MTR40F  
tamping rammer develops a powerful compacting force at the  
foot of the rammer. To maintain optimum performance, proper  
operation and service are essential.  
3. Make sure that there is no fissure on the surface. If there  
is any abnormality or damage, replace with new one.  
For operation:  
This handle is to be used to lift up the shoe part of the machine  
with the body laid down on the ground or truck bed.  
Construction of Tamping Rammer  
The Mikasa MTR40F is equipped with a Robin air-cooled, four-  
cycle gasoline engine. Transmission of power takes place by  
increasing the engine speed to engage the centrifugal clutch.  
1. Use proper lifting techniques to avoid back injury. This  
handle is for manual lifting only.  
2. Do not use this handle as a rammer lift point. Use the  
lifting point on the top of the machine.  
Rammer Spring Cylinder and Crankcase Bearings  
The Mikasa MTR40F uses zerk grease fittings to lubricate the  
spring cylinder and crankcase bearings. Lubricate these grease  
fittings as indicated in the maintenance section of this manual.  
3. Do not move the rammer with the lifting handle and the  
front rollers more than 16 feet (5 meters).  
Controls  
Before starting the MTR40F Tamping Rammer, identify and  
understand the functions of the controls.
