The German Customer Center for construction equipment, received an order from rental giant Boels to supply 400 plate compactors and rammers in sizes between 80 and 500 kg. The machines will be painted in the customer’s colors and carry the company’s logo and product name. Boels Rental will distribute the machines among their many European outlets from where they will rent them to their end-customers. Delivery is scheduled for Q2 2016.
The forward and reversible plate compactors supplied to Boels Rental will include a number of new LG 504 models equipped with compaction indicators. The compaction indicator consists of a system of lights which clearly shows when sufficient compaction has been achieved. It also reduces the risk of overcompaction, which can lead to unsatisfactory end results and unnecessary wear on the machine.
The order also includes a number of LT 6005’s, Atlas Copco’s award winning rammer. Equipped with a purpose-built Honda GXR120 engine, this machine provides all the power needed to handle the toughest soils. Noise and emission levels are low and the rammer is easy to handle, even in confined spaces, thanks to its slim design and easy steering.
“We are very pleased that Boels Rental, one of the leading European equipment rental companies, has chosen Atlas Copco as a partner for light compaction equipment. Our heritage of developing light compaction equipment goes back to 1947 when we launched the first vibratory plate. For nearly 70 years we have been able to provide our customers with very robust and reliable vibratory plates and rammers. Now Boels Rental and its customers will be able to benefit from this heritage paired with our latest innovations, together with Atlas Copco’s support in terms of an outstanding international service organization.”
