Operators who recently used Ammann’s newest plate compactor have praised the machine for its versatility, reduced hand-arm vibration and low sound levels.
Christian Jordi works for a construction company that specialise in road redevelopment. He has operated the Ammann APF 15/40 Forward Moving Vibratory Plate Compactor in both soil and asphalt applications.
“The new APF plate is perfect due to its flexibility in both applications,” Jordi said.
Jordi and other operators also commended the new Ammann plate compactor for a reduction in unwanted vibration. The improvement is noticeable when compacting soil and aggregates. It becomes even more apparent when working on asphalt, which typically creates more unwanted vibration than other materials.
Christian noted the machine’s outstanding productivity on asphalt, as the APF 15/40 was able to quickly reach compaction goals on a parking lot project.
The new plate is quieter, which was immediately apparent to the team. It is so quiet that even other workers on the site noticed the reduced sound level.
The APF 15/40 is one of five new Ammann vibratory plates that provide industry-leading compaction power, manoeuvrability, forward-moving speed and climbing ability. The product line is known for dramatically reducing unwanted vibration to operators, as became clear on this jobsite.
The plates fit a broad range of applications, such as gardening, landscaping and patchwork for road repairs. They are available with an optional water sprinkler, making them suitable for asphalt jobs, like this project.
We will be showing these new plates at February's Executive Hire Show, in the meantime if you would like more details including pricing please contact one of us on 01789 414525 / firstname.lastname@example.org
