It’s easy to take for granted equipment that runs smoothly and is comfortable to operate. However, a great deal of research and testing goes into optimizing the vibration of an engine.
May 29, 2017 - CASE Construction Equipment introduces two new combination vibratory rollers—the DV209CD and DV210CD. The new vibratory rollers compact with the front drum and deliver a smooth finish with rear pneumatic tires. The DV209CD and DV210CD come standard with automatic vibration control, crab steering, an oscillating articulated roller joint and a pressurized triple-filtration water system. High-frequency is offered as a standard feature allowing for frequencies up to 4,020 vpm (67 Hz) for greater control of compaction performance based on the thickness and density requirements of each lift.
Compaction remains one of the main profit centres for any general equipment rental house. It occupies that sweet spot where there is a lot of demand on individual projects, but not so much ongoing demand that it makes sense for a small contractor or homeowner to purchase their own machine.
May 10, 2017 - BOMAG single-direction vibratory plate compactors are designed for day-to-day use in soil and asphalt repair and maintenance compaction applications.
May 2, 2016 - In 1967, the Wacker organization opened its Canadian affiliate company in Mississauga, Ontario; the 10th affiliate to open in as many years. Market acceptance of Wacker’s innovative soil compaction and concrete consolidation products grew quickly from its first introduction to the North American market in the late 1950s in the United States. The family-owned Wacker Construction Equipment based out of Munich, Germany recognized the potential of the Canadian construction market and opened the new business in April 1967 outside of Toronto. The merger between Wacker Construction Equipment AG and Neuson Kramer Baumaschinen in 2007 (10 years ago) created a new Wacker Neuson brand along with one of the largest equipment portfolios in the world.

October 21, 2015 - Wacker Neuson is offering a compaction control system on its popular RTx trench roller. The monitoring system is called Compatec and it takes the guess work out of determining when soil has reached the ultimate compaction results.
Oct. 5, 2015 - Weber MT opened an office in Laval, Quebec on September 24th, 2015 to help support its growth and to serve Canadian customers more effectively. The new location will be managed by the Bangor office but will be operated by a new employee, Anne VanDenyssel, who is bilingual and from the Montreal area. The office will be taking care of customer service inquiries, spare parts orders and marketing for Canada.

The rammer was in the Public’s Favorite category and boasts a slim, user-friendly design that allows contractors to work close to walls and posts or in narrow spaces, such as trenches.
