2016 has been another successful year for the Ammann Rammax trench rollers, particularly the 1575 model.
Rammax invented the trench roller product more than 40 years ago, and benchmarks have always been set to improve efficiencies. Today, Ammann is the only manufacturer to still offer both articulated and skid-steered trench rollers. The longevity of the product line and the continuation of the versions prove Ammann’s commitment to this market.
Trench rollers, also called multipurpose compactors, perform well in cohesive soil types, such as clays, that can be very difficult to compact. The Rammax 1575 and 1585 are able to overcome the high moisture content in clays through their extreme compaction energy and the kneading effect of their padfoot drums.
The machines perform effectively and quickly on less challenging soils, too.
What sets the Ammann Rammax 1575 apart?
Articualtion & Oscillation
The 1575 features an articulation joint with oscillation, providing perfect ground contact and optimal compaction results. The oscillation feature also reduces the chances of tipping. The central articualtion joint is also maintenance free.
The infrared system
It is perfectly positioned with no dead angles. Integrated solar panels charge the transmitter.
Working width can be adjusted from 640mm to 850mm. The adjustment can be easily done on the jobsite.
Effective Vibratory system
A low centre of gravity ensures the vibration reaches its target. Also enabling effectiveness are a circular vibrator and two amplitude settings.
Easy service access
The hood opens wide to help crew members and technicians access the desired service points and components.
A very tight turning radius allows it to work in tight areas and also around obstacles such as manhole covers far easier than skid steer versions.
The Yanmar engine behind the Rammax is quiet, powerful and fuel efficient, and meets emission standards.
