Fairport - 5.2m Aluminium Hand Tamper
Hand operated CONCRETE TAMPER for Concrete slab laying
A lightweight, ridged, flat and smooth aluminium beam fitted with two sets of handles makes the job of tamping and leveling concrete so much easier and more efficient than using a plank.
From a standing position, the operators can hand tamp concrete using an up and down motion to consolidate the concrete. A small fast action fluidises stiff concrete mixes allowing aggregate in the mix to settle down and air voids to rise up so the slab or base will be stronger.
note: To guarantee maximum void reduction on slabs over 4″ inch (100mm) deep it is advisable to first vibrate the concrete using a “vibrating poker”
With a back and forth motion the hand tamp beam slices through the concrete until the beam rests on the formwork so you know you’re at the right level. Progressing along the formwork strikes off the concrete surface at the levels set by the formwork for a flat slab.
The concrete surface can be left with ridges for an anti-slip finish or smoother if additional passes with the hand tamper are taken. For a perfectly smooth finish, one of the long-handled floats can be used.
Step up from a plank using a Hand Concrete Tamper to save your back!
For driveways, paths, ramps, garage bases, concrete floors the hand tamp saves your back as well as saving you time. When you have a cubic meter of concrete to lay using a plank or piece of timber will leave you in no fit state to carry on working for the rest of the day. The hand tamp is a simple, cost-effective back saver.

The normal warranty on Fairport equipment is 1 year from delivery to the customer and 3 years for the Honda engines fitted. Should a machine failure occur it is expected that the customer will complete a warranty claim form which will be assessed by Fairport. Assessment will establish if the failure has been a result of premature mechanical failure, normal wear and tear or machine abuse. Once approved, the machine can be repaired under warranty by either a Fairport Distributor or by the Fairport factory. See here for more information
