The ARW65, Ammann's walk behind roller, combines two application within one machine.
The operator can choose between a high amplitude setting for working on gravel and soil based surfaces, or a low amplitude setting for usage on asphalt and bituminous material.
The ARW 65 features scrapers on both drums and a 60-litre water tank with sprinkler system to ensure the machine is ready to handle bituminous surfaces when called upon.
Edge work - The ARW65 offers clearance on both sides of the drum, allowing compaction work up to curbstones, walls and other obstacles. Therefore no extra work on edges is required, saving precious time.
Smooth operation - Each machine is fitted with a hydraulic drive, ensuring variable speed adjustment and smooth starting/braking actions.
Minimal maintenance - The walk behind rollers are built without mechanical fast-wearing parts such as V belts and a clutch, helping reduce maintenance time.
Safety - The guide handle includes the 'dead mans handle' which immediately shuts off the machine if the operator releases their grip. When in reverse mode the roller's speed limit is set to 2.5km/h as a safety regulation to protect workers.

The Ammann ARX20 roller is a light, articulated machine, with a 1 metre wide drum, that delivers optimal compaction results through its double drive and double vibration systems.
A big plus for asphalt and groundworkers using this roller is that it works flush up against curbs and other obstructions. The operator also has excellent visibility from the work station, not only to the drums but also all around the machine.
The electric drive-lever makes for smooth starting and stopping and is another the reasons the roller is popular. Other operator benefits include a rubber-mounted platform that limits vibration, a reliable Yanmar engine and large water tank capacities.
Like all of our Ammann ARX tandem rollers, the ARX 20 is built with high quality, long-lasting components that reduce the cost of ownership over the lifetime of the machine. It is reliable, economical, safe and fuel efficient.

Simply put compaction technology can have a significant impact on your bottom line.
Utilising technology can help operators reduce passes and deliver substantial savings in labour, fuel and machine wear. The technology also can ensure compaction goals have been achieved, eliminating the need for costly re-work at the jobsite.
Three ways in which cutting edge Ammann technology can help you are outlined below. Please Contact Us for further information on anything from our Ammann Compaction range.
Triple Shaft Exciter System on Plate Compactors
The patented Ammann triple-shaft exciter system provides industry-leading climbing ability and compaction output, ultimately delivering outstanding results, even on cohesive soils.
The triple-shaft exciter system eliminates erratic movements, allowing smooth travel even through heavy and cohesive soil. This unique system’s consistent movement enables effortless climbing over obstacles or while compacting backfill materials with high moisture content. This is done without the usual suction effect, which can leave plates at a standstill.
The ease in handling and maneuvering of the plate is particularly helpful when the use of low frequency/high amplitude is required.
GPS Based Compaction
ACEplus combines the ACE (Ammann Compaction Expert) measurement and control system with a navigation system. It provides an efficient analysis and documentation system for continuous compaction control.
The satellite navigation system accurately assigns the measured compaction values to the position coordinates and the time. The graphic display of measurement data relays the on-site compaction work and enables a fast and reliable performance analysis.
ACEplus therefore increases reliability and integrates quality control measures in the work process.
Intelligent Ground Compaction
Precise, transparent and verifiable compaction processes increasingly are required on construction sites. Ammann took the first steps toward providing these processes in 1998 with the creation of Ammann Compaction Expert (ACE), an automated compaction measurement and control system.
ACE has been continually improved since its introduction and remains the industry leader. It is the only system that automatically adjusts amplitude and frequency based on ground characteristics.
The benefits of ACE technology are significant. Among them:
ACE technology is available for both soil and asphalt applications. There are three ACE options available; ACE Pro, ACE Force and ACE econ.
The Ammann ARR 1575 is our very popular and successful trench roller.
With expendable drums allowing working widths of 640 or 850 mm, these roller packs a real punch, aided by a powerful Yanmar engine. The machine and its padfoot drum provide results, even where other compactors have failed. Its ability to work in cohesive soils can prevent the need for soil removal and replacement, providing a significant financial impact.

Examples of Machine Applications
The above video shows an Ammann ARS200 working on a road construction site in the Czech Republic. Despite it being filmed abroad the features and benefits shown in the video make it a successful machine worldwide.
Ammann say of the ARS200 "This T4f Soil Compactor goes to work on jobsites where the ultimate compaction power is needed, including sub-bases for heavy transportation construction such as railways, airfields and harbors.It combines advanced amplitude and vibratory systems with a heavier operating weight of 22 tons to deliver industry-leading compaction outputs."
In fact this model is far heavier with far greater compaction abilities when compared to it's rival machines.

As the UK & Ireland distributor of Ammann's compaction machinery we sell a wide variety of compaction plates, forward moving, reversible and hydrostatic.
The reversible range of Ammann plate compactors are know as APR. All of these plates have a modern design, with a sturdy protection frame, integrated central lifting point and a choice of powerful petrol or diesel engines making this series of vibration plate very popular.
The APR 2220 plate represents the lightest unit in the reversible plate series, with an operating width of 40 cm and a forward speed of 25 meter/min.
This plate is particularly suitable for compaction work in narrow trenches and in confined areas. It's an extremely compact and handy unit with an operating weight of just below 100 kg (Honda petrol engine, 121kg Hatz engine.)
Both versions reach a high maximum vibration frequency of 98 Hz and maximum centrifugal force of 22 kN. The light weight and narrow working widths make the machines perform well on confined jobsites
This machine, like the larger APR 2620 and 3020 can have optional transport wheels attached. As well as wheels there is also the option of rubber mats, to avoid damage to paving stones.
