A&Y Equipment LTD are pleased to announce that, in line with the current evolution of the Molson Group, they will be re-branding as Molson Compact Equipment LTD.
A big part of this change will be the addition of Kobelco mini excavators to the Molson Compact offering. These excavator models, from 1-10 tonne, will perfectly complement the existing lines of Ammann, Dieci, Bergmann and Cormidi plant machinery.
This will mean that the current site, just outside of Stratford-upon-Avon, will become the Molson Group ‘Centre of Excellence’ for all compact plant equipment. With the heavy line Kobelco series remaining at the Molson Group HQ in Avonmouth.
Molson Compact Equipment Managing Director, Robert Brown said of the changes “Being the centre of excellence will involve us being responsible for the processing of Sales, Parts, Servicing, Storage and PDI for the Molson Group compact ranges. Whilst still offering ongoing Yanmar parts and service support”
There is also excitement about the new partnership with Kobelco and the openings that may bring.
“Now dealing with Kobelco excavators will give us more opportunities than previously. For example we now have a cabbed, 1.5 tonne machine with expanding tracks readily available. As well as very high performing 8 and 9 tonne excavators, both with excellent specs, and cost saving features. In fact the cost saving benefits are found across the range with Kobelco’s ‘We Save You Fuel’ initiative. The large Kobelco models already have an excellent reputation for performance and reliability and we look forward to further enhancing that throughout the UK for the compact machines”
With over a hundred machines in stock and the workshop constantly busy processing incoming orders, it has been a strong start for Molson Compact Equipment.
Users wanting high performance, big power, low noise, reduced fuel consumption and cutting edge technology. All with full dealer back up and support, should look no further than the products on offer from Molson Compact Equipment LTD.
The Ammann APF 15/40 plate compactor is a high performing compaction tool in both soil and asphalt applications.
Operators who have used this plate compactor have praised the machine for its; versatility, reduced hand-arm vibration and low sound levels.
The APF 15/40 is one of five, APF Ammann vibratory plates that provide industry-leading compaction power, manoeuvrability, forward-moving speed and climbing ability.
An optional Vulcolan mat, which can be installed without a single tool, provides quick adjustment when working with paving stones. Also a quick, tool-less attach, water sprinkling system enables work on asphalt.
The plate’s technologically advanced exciter unit is maintenance free, with cylindrical bearings that reduce wear. The exciter system also provides significant forward-moving power to enhance productivity in challenging materials and on steep grades. One user also commented how much quieter the APF 15/40 is when compared to previous plate compactors used on site. Yet despite this reduction in noise he also commented how compaction goals are met even quicker than before.
This week we have sold one of our Dieci 40.7 telehandlers, to a customer who required a powerful, yet precise machine. Whilst having all the operator comforts such as air con and a large fabric seat.
This fixed-boom telehandler with a specific vocation for heavy and intensive use, is equipped with an innovative second generation VS EVO2 hydrostatic transmission (Continuously Variable) that allows the operator to always find the best possible speed/power ratio in any operating conditions. Thus ensuring unrivaled smoothness and fluidity of movement.
The VS EVO2 transmission combined with the electronic management system, also allows fuel savings up to 20%.
The new DCS (Descent Control System) ensures maximum boom lowering speeds even with engine running on minimum, allowing the users exceptional maneuverability and greater comfort.
Further benefits gained from the DCS system is; more precise movements, more responsive controls at the start of a movement and increased all around stability.
Furthermore, the machine is less prone to the environmental conditions and is ready and efficient even when the hydraulic oil is cold.
Some key specs of the machine include:
Cab Height - 2,445 mm
Width - 2,260 mm
Unladen Weight - 7,700 kg
Maximum Speed - 40 km/h
Pull Out Force - 6,000 daN
Engine Type - FPT

An online machinery/equipment guide has reviewed one of our Ammann trench rollers, the ARR1575. This particular model is fully remote controlled, with a central articulation joint, which also oscillates to follow the ground, therefore reducing the risk of tipping over.
The review is as follows:
The Ammann ARR 1575 Tier 4 Final Roller overcomes high moisture content in cohesive soils and clays while consuming less fuel than its predecessors.
The trench roller utilises a Yanmar 3TNV80F engine that meets the strictest emissions requirements in Europe and the U.S. The engine also provides excellent power and features reductions in noise and vibration.
Trench rollers, also called multi-purpose compactors, perform well in cohesive soil types, such as clays, that can be difficult to compact. The ARR 1575 is able to overcome the high moisture content in clays through its extreme compaction energy and the kneading effect of the padfoot drums.
The machine performs effectively and quickly on less challenging soils, too. The trench roller’s performance makes it productive in many applications, including pipeline construction; commercial, residential and industrial development; structure backfill work; confined workspaces; airport construction; electric and cable installation; dumpsite and landfill jobsites; and road sub-bases.
Productivity can be improved with the use of extension kits that stretch drum widths from 640 to 850 mm. The adjustment can be completed quickly on the jobsite.
Key features include:
The infrared system. It is perfectly positioned with no dead angles. Integrated solar panels charge the transmitter, eliminating one jobsite task.
Easy access to service points. The hood opens wide to help the crew and technicians reach the desired service points and components.
Effective vibratory system. A low centre of gravity ensures the compaction vibration reaches its target. Also enabling effectiveness are a circular vibrator and 2 amplitude settings.
Two steering cylinders. They enable powerful and fast articulation and help make the ARR 1575 responsive and precise.
Articulation joint with oscillation. The maintenance-free joint helps provide optimal ground contact and compaction results. The oscillation in the articulation joint also reduces the chances of tipping.
Ammann ARX Heavy Tandem rollers provide all of the features and benefits that ultimately lead to cost savings for the owners.
The ARX models feature articulated steering, with both the cab and engine compartment fitted to the front frame. These machines are commonly found on jobsites including; transport links and airport construction as well as all manner of urban construction sites such as housing estates.
"Ammann Tandem rollers provide operator comfort and easy adjustment of the amplitude and frequency"
