The rammer was in the Public’s Favorite category and boasts a slim, user-friendly design that allows contractors to work close to walls and posts or in narrow spaces, such as trenches.

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 in a wide variety of applications, such as repairing trenches, ditches and foundations. The Atlas Copco Industrial Design Competence Center in Sweden and its Construction Tools Division designed the new LT6005, which replaces the LT5005 model. 

The Association presented the award to Atlas Copco during a ceremony in Stockholm. The Grand Award of Design honors successful design strategies and outstanding innovation, as well as ergonomics and environmental friendliness. Atlas Copco also received the 2015 International iF Design Award from iF International Forum Design BmbH, Hannover, Germany, for its LT6005 rammer.
