Here are good machines that we are using and hiring out. They have proved themselves over the past 7 years and we can testify to their reliability. We have our own technicians that service and repair these machines on a regulated schedule. These machines work very hard every day and have been doing so for the past 7 years. We stock Meiwa - Vipac – Weber rammers, all good.
We have had great success with four-stroke rammers over the past 5 years. The Robin EH12-2D engine has been very good. However over the past two years the local suppliers of spares in South Africa have become very incompetent, understocked and overpriced. We are now importing our own stock of machines and spares from reputable suppliers and will keep on specializing in rammers. We are not trying to be the biggest and we are NOT a one stop shop where you can get everything and anything. We are essentially a compaction orientated company and we concentrate on Robin EH12-2D and Honda GX100.
Because our fuel quality seems to be inconsistent in South Africa we have found time and again that the best carburetor for rammer applications is still the fuel float bowl type. diaphragm type carburetors don’t work because of the alcohol in our fuel, the diaphragms go hard and the rammer wont start.
Compax Tool Hire cc started as a rammer specialist company in 2005. We operate country-wide and supply rammers to many long haul projects. We have built a solid reputation as a reliable supplier in the trenching industry both for electrical and fiber optics projects. We will supply to pipeline projects, water, fuel and gas.
We are now also offering a one stop facility for spares and replacement parts for all makes of four-stroke rammers. These rammers were mostly equipped with Robin EH12-2D engines. We are now expanding to include Honda GX100 spares.
