This week we have seen a number of Ammann ARR 1585 trench rollers going through the workshop and heading out to join a large rental fleet.
Ammann invented the trench roller product more than 40 years ago, and benchmarks have always been set to improve efficiency. Today, Ammann is able to offer both articulated (ARR 1575) and skid-steered machines (ARR 1585), both controlled by extremely safe remote contols, which cut out if the operator is too close (<2m) or far away (>24m) from the machine.
Trench rollers, also called multipurpose compactors, perform well in cohesive soil types, such as clays, that can be very difficult to compact. The ARR 1585 is able to overcome the high moisture content in clay through its extreme compaction energy and the kneading effect of the padfoot drums. Its rigid frame also helps it focus on particularly challenging areas.
What sets the new ARR 1585 apart from the competition?
The rigid frame
The rigid frame, also referred to as a skid-steer concept, provides extreme manoeuvrability. In fact, the machine can turn 360º in place. That means it also can “hover” and focus all its compaction force on a single area.
The quiet, powerful and fuel-efficient Hatz engine meets Tier 4 Final standards.
The skid-steer concept provides great manoeuverability. Other user-friendly features include; intuitive manual control and simple machine layout, a central lifting hook makes it easy to place the machine where needed, two drum widths of 630 mm and 850 mm are available.
Unique compaction output
The rigid frame and padfoot drum are unique to the market. The effective vibratory system features a low centre of gravity that ensures the vibration reaches its target.
Easy access to service points
The hood opens wide to help crew members and technicians reach the desired service points and components. There are no lubrication points or V belts to maintain
