GENERAL INFORMATION  
Definition of Tamping Rammer  
The Mikasa MT-85H tamping 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 road, embankments and reservoirs as well as backfilling for  
gas pipelines, water pipelines and cable installation work.  
The impact force of the MT-85H levels and uniformly compacts  
voids between soil particles to increase dry density.  
Circular motion is converted to create impact force.The MT-85 H  
tamping rammer develops a powerful compacting force at the  
foot of the rammer. To maintain optimum performance, proper  
operation and service are essential.  
Construction of Tamping Rammer  
The Mikasa MT-85H is equipped with an air cooled, two cycle  
gasoline engine. Transmission of the power takes place by  
increasing the engine speed to engage the centrifugal clutch.  
Rammer Gearbox and Spring Cylinder  
The Mikasa MT-85H uses an oil bath lubrication system.Always  
check the oil level through the oil level sight glass at the rear of  
the tamper foot.  
Controls  
Before starting the MT-85H Tamping Rammer identify and  
understand the function of the controls, see Figure 1 on page 9.
