Tamper Design


My favorite tamper is pictured here. It is quite heavy, which means that even though it takes work to lift it, you don’t have to put as much muscle into the down-stroke. Also, the base of this tamper is about as wide as the bag is, so one tamp will cover the entire width of the bag. I used this quite successfully in tamping the earthbags that were filled with scoria.
