New lightweight asphalt rollers from Ammann
Ammann continues to widen its range of asphalt compactors with the addition of new models in the lightweight class for articulated tandem rollers. The range now includes 13 different models based on three basic chassis. These offer working weights from 1.4-4.6tonnes and working widths of 820-1,380mm.
These versatile units are suited to use in a wide variety of tasks in small-medium sized jobs such as urban road repairs, suiting customers from both rental and contracting segments. Power comes from Tier 3/Stage IIIA compliant Yanmar diesels that offer low maintenance and fuel costs. Progressive starting and stopping is said to ensure compaction quality is optimised at the beginning or end of a pass. The ARX 36, ARX 40 and ARX 45 models are offered with dual frequency and dual amplitude selection, which broadens the range of applications. The rollers are controlled by electronic steering while the firm’s sophisticated ACEforce compaction system provides the operator with data on work being carried out, allowing continuous control of the work in hand. Ergonomic in design, the machines are said to be easier to operate, providing a good view of the drum edges.
