Ammann unveils its most compact single-drum roller

The Ammann ARS 30, at a weight of 3 tonnes, is the lightest and smallest roller in Ammann’s soil compaction product line. Despite its size, the machine delivers high compaction output through advanced technology, innovative engineering and a robust engine.

The ARS 30, with a working width of 1200mm (47.2 inches), is suitable for compacting a wide range of materials and can be even more flexible given the smooth or padfoot drum options. Cab or open platforms are available.

Engine power output is 43.2 kW (58 Hp). The engine meets the latest emissions standards (US EPA Tier 4f / EU Stage V).

Fuel consumption is an exceptional 5 litres (1.32 US gallons) per hour. That efficiency and a large fuel tank of 98 litres (25.8 US gallons) mean a roller need only be fuelled once every three working shifts.

Advanced engineering and years of industry expertise are behind the development of the drive system. The drums, designed and manufactured by Ammann, are high quality and extremely durable.

The strong single-stage vibratory system and two different frequencies supply compaction power of 37 kN and 68kN.


Customers appreciate that the drums are designed to be maintenance-free as part of Ammann’s ECOdrop philosophy. The focus of ECOdrop is to reduce the volume of fluids required, make service points extremely accessible – and make all new products more environmentally friendly.

ECOdrop on the ARS 30 offers:
Improved fuel economy and lower fuel consumption due to available EcoMode.
A maintenance-free vibratory system with lifetime grease bath instead of oil bath.
A lifetime maintenance-free steering joint with bearings placed in cage storage.
No drive gearboxes – and therefore no gear oil is needed.


The innovative no-rear-axle concept separates Ammann ARS Single Drum Rollers from the competition. Elimination of the rear axle makes the rollers more compact and enables a lower engine location that improves the centre of gravity – which provides better stability, even on slopes.

Intelligent Compaction

Also available for installation is the ACEforce system, which enables operators to easily monitor compaction progress. The Intelligent Compaction system shows the actual kB value on the display, significantly reducing the time required to achieve maximum compaction.

Other key machine features include:

  • A standard twin-lock drive that improves traction and reduces slipping of axles. This fully automatic traction control system is activated without electronic controls.
  • A new articulated joint that further boosts drive performance, stability and manoeuvrability.
  • An operator station with a wide-opening entrance that provides unrestricted access to the spacious, quiet cab.
  • A multi-functional control display that is located on the main dashboard, making it easy for operators to monitor.
  • An engine compartment that is easily accessible, with a heavy-duty design that protects all major components during operation.
