Rammers - Construction Machines
Just as the name implies a rammer is a tool used for driving something with force. Most commonly used to compact the ground instead of using vibrations like a plate compactor would, this machine requires alot less manpower. Compaction can be done at a much faster speed, and can easily be used to cover a larger area.
A plate compactor is used to compress most soil and gravel, most likely used by construction workers. Being a heavy machine, it requires quite a bit of manpower as holding the machine in place while it vibrates compacting the ground is a bit of work. An essential tool for building sidewalks, patios and walkways, this is a durable piece of equipment and assists in a huge way to create a smooth and even surface.
Electric shredders are easy to use and simple. Garden debris is fed through the opening of the shredder, which lead into oversized cutting blades. Create nutrient-rich mulch and compost with this fantastic tool, making life easier whilst recycling your garden waste.

Shredders are similar to that of a leaf mulcher, but can handle larger pieces of wood. A strong and powerful mulcher great for getting through all the excess wood and branches and making them useful in smaller pieces for use around your garden as mulch or compost.
