A&Y Key Accounts Manager Chris Beckingsale is excited to start working with Broadway Machinery, he praised the setup they have and knows their previous experiences in this sector will mean they excel in providing the full sales and services package.
The partnership has begun well with at the time of writing this already two machines sold. One Ammann ARX12 tandem roller and a zero tails swing, 8 tonne ViO80-1. A great start and the sign of more to come.
Last week we took delivery of the first batch of ASC70 single drum rollers with the very latest in engine technology, which meets US Tier 4 final and EU Stage IIIB emissions standards. All this without the need for AdBlue.
These rollers are part of a bigger deal currently going through that includes; Trench rollers, ARX12, ARX26, ARX45, ASC110 and ASC150.
The ASC70 is a 7.2 tonne roller powered by a Tier 4f Deutz engine. Best suited to small and medium jobsites it provides industry leading vibration output through its varied amplitude settings and effective Ammann vibratory system.
During a visit from a Deutz engine expert he commented on what a great fit this engine was to the machine. He was impressed with it's output and the way it complemented the needs of the roller "you wont have an issues with these machines" he added.
Highlights of this particular model include:
Look out for more details on this roller deal coming soon. If you like the look of this or any of the Ammann products then please contact us for more information including; brochures, specs, pricing and finance.

Ammann had a strong showing at the recent ConExpo show in Las Vegas. Joining the Asphalt plants and Pavers was the full range of Compaction equipment. A&Y are the UK & Ireland importer for all your Ammann Compaction needs, including sales, parts and servicing.
On the roller side there was a number of ARX tandem rollers ranging from the 80 cm drum ARX12 right to the ARX45. Alongside these were single drum, self-propelled ASC and heavy tandem ARX rollers. Completing the rollers were Rammax trench rollers and AP tyre rollers.
Of course there was a good showing of light equipment, which are popular worldwide. Here a Canadian Ammann dealer briefly runs through some of the benefits of these machines.

Last week we spend a day with Tierra Designs, an award winning garden design and build company from Hertfordshire. They currently run four machines from A&Y, an older Yanmar SV08 and Cormidi C50, alongside a more recently purchased Cormidi C85 and a brand new Yanmar ViO12, one of only four currently in the UK.
The site they are working on, located just outside the idyllic town of Berkhamsted, saw all 4 of these machines being utilised as they dug the footings for a new wall and patio in a garden.
You may recognise the C85 as this was the versatile tracked dumper sold with a cement mixer attachment as well as the standard high tip skip. In fact a simple change over saw the C85 alter from a tracked dumper to a tracked cement mixer part way through the day! Saving the guys all important time and money.
It was great to see the ViO12 being worked hard and also to hear so much positive feedback on this excavator.
Features such as the expanding undercarriage and zero tail swing allows for the machine to work in tight spots, in this instance up against a wall, safe in the knowledge that the rear of the machine wont catch on any obstacles.
The expanding undercarriage was key on this jobsite for more than just that reason. The ground was difficult to work on but the added stability of the ViO12 still meant work could be completed at a good speed. The ViO12 has a long arm fitted as standard, however due to the strong stability of this machine side and front lifting capacities remain high.
Whilst having a chat with Jules, one of the owners and operators on the day he told us that "with the added power and capabilities of the ViO12 we treat it more like a 1 and half tonne digger, but with all the compactness of a 1 tonner. Perfect for the work we do"
The three cylinder Yanmar engine does give a surprising amount of power to the ViO12 and it seems that this is being fully utilised by Tierra Designs.
As you may know the ViO12 is operated by joystick or servo controls, one of the main features of this new micro excavator. Again we received multiple positive comments about this, particularly how it makes the operating position far more comfortable, especially during long shifts.
Below are a selection of images from the day. For any more information on any Yanmar or Cormidi product please Contact Us - email@example.com
Our 1.7 tonne, zero tail swing ViO 17 excavator has recently had a face lift, making the machine look far better and of course not reducing its impressive working qualities.
New decals are now present down the machines arm, as well as side panel. With the rear of the machine matching the rest of the black and yellow colour scheme, with the latest Yanmar 'flying V' logo in place. We believe these alterations make this digger look more modern. In fact the ViO17 we showed at February's Executive Hire Show was one of the latest versions, did you spot the changes?!
The ViO17 with its expanding undercarriage (950 mm - 1280 mm) is always a popular choice for all manner of sectors, including; hire, urban renovation, landscapers and farmers.
Some of the main features are outlined below:
Complete Blade System - The blade is extended using a simple folding mechanism. No tools are required to fold in or out and the extensions and pins stay permanently on the machine, meaning they wont get lost. The blade is positioned 35cm from the tracks allowing for stones to pass between and it comes complete with a central greasing point.
VIPPs System - This technology is unique to the Yanmar brand, with the hydraulic circuitry design and load sensing pumps offering increased performance when utilising the boom, arm bucket and swing features. Key aspects to this improved performance include stability and lifting capacity, as well as 15% faster cycle times.
High Machine Stability - The ViO17’s centre of gravity is lower than that of competing machines at 74cm above the ground. This, combined with the extending undercarriage, gives the machine impressive working stability along with strong front and side lifting capabilities.
Second Speed Pedal - The second speed option is engaged via a foot pedal on the ViO17. This pedal is located on the left hand side of the work station. It allows users to control the tracking speed whilst keeping two hands on the controls at all times.
Accessory Auxiliary Line - The use of accessories that require opening, closing or rotation, such as grab buckets, is made easier due to having both dual and single acting auxiliary circuits. This is controlled using a large foot pedal situated on the left side of the work station.
Last week we took delivery of a number of new Cormidi C6.50 tracked dumpers, these machines have proved incredibly popular in the last few days with less than half of the original amount remaining. As you may notice they have had a slight change of look in terms of decals, but rest assured this hasn't affected the performance.
The C6.50 is the smallest of the 3 x Cormidi models we currently offer, with a weight of 500kg, length of 1550 mm and width of 700 mm. Making this carrier stable yet still able to work in tight spaces.
Another benefit to these dumpers are they come hi-tip as standard, meaning tipping over skip sides or obstacles such as walls isn't a problem. The C6.50 has a tipping height of 1.43 metres.
Offering fully hydrostatic drive, the Cormidi C6.50 is perfect for all your earthmoving and contracting purposes - making transport of loose material from A to B much quicker and easier. Ideal for smaller landscapers or rural landowners and farmers.
With a top travelling speed of 2.5 mph, the carrier moves over uneven or wet ground even when fully loaded. This is aided by the innovative 'rocking rollers', where the middle two rollers along the bottom oscillate allowing the tracks to ride over stones or brick whilst still keeping the load stable.
In fact the whole undercarriage is custom built for a tracked dumper, it is angled to help climbing and rather than other dumpers that use excavator undercarriages its rides over the obstacles rather than climb up to the midway tipping point then rocking forward. The below video shows in slow motion how easily the Cormidi travels over a rock.
