“Construction sites are tough environments, and the workers must be able to rely on their tools to be easy to handle, effective and safe,” said Vladimir Kozlovskiy,  President of Atlas Copco’s Construction Tools Division. “The LT6005 is built with the operator in mind and we are very pleased that the innovative design is recognized by our customers who voted for us.”

Atlas Copco Rammers are versatile compaction tools developed for work on cohesive and granular soils, for example for repair and improvements to trenches, ditches and foundations. They have been designed in-house by the Group’s Industrial Design Competence Center in Sweden in cooperation with engineers at the Construction Tools division.

The Grand Award of Design honors successful design strategies, level of innovation, usability, ergonomics and environmental friendliness. Already in February, the LT 6005 rammer received the well-known iF design award in Germany.
