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.
The ACR60 is the lightest of the Ammann Rammers, with a weight of 62 kg. It is used when a little less weight is sufficient – especially in particularly tight spaces. Like all Ammann Rammers, the handle is key to the success of the ACR60. It offers high production while limiting the vibration levels that reach the operator and, of course, enables maneuverability. The rammer is equipped with a Honda GX100, 4-stroke gasoline engine that is powerful and also prevents fluid spills when on steep grades. The engine meets all global emission standards.
The RW1585 is a skid-steered machine that enables powerful compaction forces to be applied to particularly difficult spots. It also can cover ground when in less challenging conditions.
