Previously we have touched upon some of the many features and benefits that come as standard on our light tandem rollers, the ARX 12-45
These have included such features as: three position throttle, maintenance free central articulation joint, drum scrapers as standard and a lockable vandal cove to name but a few.
However this is just touching the surface of what these machines can offer the owner and operator.
Today we will highlight 5 further features, with a brief explanation of how they benefit the machine.
You can see all of the information on these rollers by viewing the brochure, with the link being available HERE - ARX Light Tandem Roller Page
Isolated from Vibration
The whole operators platform is isolated from vibration. The rollers have the lowest whole body, and hand arm vibration (HAV) figures for rollers this size.
The seat, steering, travel lever and even the floor are vibration isolated.
Clear, User Friendly Dashboard
A simple and clear dashboard allows for easy operation of the machines functions.
Alongside the built in diesel fuel gauge, hour and voltage meter, are; the vibration frequency controls, working light controls and sprinkler system operation. A horn, hazard lights and emergency stop button increase roller safety.
Safe and Easy Maintenance
The large opening hood gives unparalleled maintenance access to the rollers.
This is key from a safety point of view as all maintenance and service can be carried out on the safe side of the roller, for example away from traffic lanes if working on a road job.
Complete Lever Controls
The drive lever, situated to the right hand side not only controls the motion of control but also the vibration and sprinkler switch.
The drive lever is soft start and stop, especially important on asphalt jobs where no marks will be created.
Reliable Yanmar Engine
Ammann tandem rollers offer plenty of power thanks to a water cooled, diesel powered Yanmar engine.
These engines are renowned for their reliability, yet still give high torque and overall performance whilst keeping emissions to a minimum.
