Could anyone comment on their experience using a demo-hammer with
tamping attachment. The 5" tamper base seems pretty small- is this
mostly just to tamp around posts?
I have several small jobs coming up where I could use a power tamper.
[a few different areas of 60-80 square feet each where I need to tamp
down a stone base.]
I have rented a power tamper before for about $80/day. I see the
tamper base & shaft goes for about $80-100. [This is for a Bosch
11305 Demo-hammer-- the one with the 3/4 hex bits]
If it is at all practical for what I want to do I'd rather buy that.
It would take longer to do the job, but I could do a little bit at my
leisure [which is my usual M-O anyway] and I'd have the tamper around
for the next job.
