protective clothing, shatterproof glasses, steel-toed  
boots and other protective devices required by the  
job.  
The engine section of this rammer requires an adequate  
free flow of cooling air. NEVER operate the rammer in any  
enclosed or narrow area where free  
flow of the air is restricted. If the air  
flow is restricted it will cause serious  
damage to the rammer or engine  
and may cause injury to people.

fuel vapors, or if fuel is spilled on a hot  
engine.  
NEVER operate the rammer in an explosive atmosphere or  
near combustible materials. An explosion or fire could result  
causing severe bodily harm or even death.  
Topping-off to filler port is dangerous, as it tends to spill fuel.

GENERAL INFORMATION  
Definition of Tamping Rammer  
The Mikasa MTR-35HS 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 backfilling for gas pipelines, water pipelines  
and cable installation work.  
The impact force of the MTR-35HS levels and uniformly  
compacts voids between soil particles to increase dry density.  
Circular motion is converted to create impact force.The MTR-  
35HS 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 MTR-35HS is equipped with an Robin air cooled,  
oil-injected 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 MTR-35HS 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 MTR-35HS Tamping Rammer identify and  
understand the function of the controls, see Figure 1 on page11.

Failure to understand the operation of the MTR-  
35HSTamping Rammer could result in severe  
damage to the rammer or personal injury.  
DO NOT use your rammer until this section is thoroughly  
understood.  
Prior to starting the operation  
Engine  
1. When transporting the machine, carry it by the grip handle  
located on the body (Figure 2).  
1. Fill the fuel tank (Figure 3 ) with unleaded gasoline. At the  
same time, check the engine oil level at the sight gauge  
locatedontheoperator'ssideoftheoiltank. Filltheoiltank

CAUTION:  
The oil hose is not to be depressed or  
damaged. A sensor detects lack of oil and  
shuts down the engine automatically.

rating.  
2. Low levels of oil may result in engine seizure due to high  
levels of consumption during operations.  
3. Check the engine oil level and if the engine oil level is low, it  
should be refilled. Use the proper motor oil as suggested in
