            Q:Will this work on pavers, as a vibration tool when adding new sand to the paver joints?

            Answer This Question

            A:  I'm currently using this tool to tamp my base for a small 4x15 paver walkway. I would say you could, but put a piece of wood over the work area and tamp gently so you don't break your pavers... Great tool.. Well made...

            Q:How much does the head weigh
            by|Aug 21, 2018

            Answer This Question

            A:  The head and the handle are welded together. If I were to guess I would say that the head weighs approximately 5 pounds. The entire tool is pretty heavy which makes compaction easier.

            by|Sep 25, 2020

            A:  Overall tool weighs almost 16 pounds

            by|Sep 1, 2018

            A:  This comes assembled and the total weight is about 15 pounds.

            by|Aug 27, 2018

            A:  the head & handle are welded together. they are listed to weigh over 15#

            A:  It's pretty heavy. If weight is a concern you should get a lighter tamper with a wood handle. The downside is that it won't be as durable. This is more of a pro tool.

              A:  Its heavy. At only 5'3'' purchased for my project and I can handle 40 lbs no problem and this feels heavy. Also a bit clumsy for a shorter person, the handle is long. This is made for a tall man. Anyway I will make it work because I need it for my project, but it will definitely be a work out. They should list the exact weight with this in my opinion

              by|May 4, 2021

                A:  Just under 16lbs

                Made in USA. I needed a tamper for the installation of some brick pavers. This is a fine tool and fits the bill for compacting the ground to reduce settlement and keep things level. The base plate is 3/8 inch plate and adds the necessary weight to compact sand and soil. There is a slight crown on the base which enables you to concentrate the load when tamping. The 4 foot handle is reinforced with 4 welded gusset plates at 90 degrees to each other. This definitely adds to the rigidity of the tool and allows evenly applied force. The tamper is painted black with a rubber cap on the end of the handle for ease of handling. Very well made and should last a long time. Like any tool, I'd recommend storing it in your garage and keeping it out of the weather when not in use.

                This tamping tool is a total of 49.5” long with a 3/8” plate and cushioned grip handle. It is all steel and HEAVY!! It even has a 1/16” center taper on the steel plate for concentrated tamping. This tamper is super heavy duty and will make those tamping jobs easier because of it's well thought out design and no nonsense heft. Well done Bully Tools!!!

                I recently received the 49 inch Steel Handle Tamper Plate made by Bully Tools. This tool has been great for general “tamping” of posts around the yard. I recently built a kayak rack which required four (4) 4x4 corner posts. The tamping tool made the job of compacting the area around the posts a real breeze. The tool is advertised as 100% American made and comes with a lifetime warranty. For jobs requiring an area to be compacted, this is a really great tool to have. In summary, The Bully Tools tamping plate is well made and comes with a lifetime warranty. It did a great job for me and I would recommend it.

                I highly recommend this 49" steel handle tamper plate for filling in and tamping small projects. I had a low corner in my yard, which caused a gap under my chain link fence. I filled in the low area with some dirt and use this tamper plate to compress the dirt, and lumps, to level it in preparation for seeding. This product is made in America and is all steel construction. The weight of this tamper is almost 16 pounds. This tamper has a limited lifetime warranty.

                Built to outlast us! Weighing in at almost 16 lbs, you don’t have to lift this tamper very high to be effective. Maintaining 5- acres, we’ll put this to good use re-compacting dirt, especially when we didn’t do the digging! (e.g. refilling “critter-burrows”, mashing mole-tunnels, and gopher mounds). The flat edge allows getting right up against a foundation, pavement or edging. Maybe we’ll tackle that paver project now! Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and keep feet safely out of the way.

                49 in. STEEL HANDLE TAMPER PLATE. To Start Made in The USA!! Nice to see some products still made in the USA for a Fair Price. when shopping online the display picture looked to me as if the handle & base bolt together, using a cross bolt. THAT is NOT the case. 1 piece welded construction. overall this is built to the same size as my previous one that had a wood handle. no more dealing with a loose handle on this Tamper. i will be keeping my eye out for anything from Bully tools in the future.

                The tamper plate is a solid tool. I used it to level out some high spots in our yard and also pound down mole or gopher holes. The handle is a bit short, would be nice to have a longer rubber padded end for wider grip, but I think you will run into fatigue before your hands get sore. The plate has a good weight for small projects. This can be used for most small home projects.
