New Ammann roller overcomes challenging, cohesive materials

The new Ammann ARR 1575 Tier 4f Roller utilizes a Yanmar 3TNV80F engine that meets the strictest emissions requirements in Europe and the U.S.
The new Ammann ARR 1575 Tier 4f Roller utilizes a Yanmar 3TNV80F engine that meets the strictest emissions requirements in Europe and the U.S.

The new Ammann ARR 1575 Tier 4 Final Roller overcomes high moisture content in cohesive soils and clays while consuming less fuel than its predecessors.

The trench roller utilizes a Yanmar 3TNV80F engine that meets the strictest emissions requirements in Europe and the U.S. The engine also provides excellent power and features reductions in noise and vibration.

Productivity can be improved with the use of extension kits that stretch drum widths from 640 to 850 mm. The adjustment can be completed quickly on the jobsite.

Trench rollers, also called multi-purpose compactors, perform well in cohesive soil types, such as clays, that can be difficult to compact. The ARR 1575 is able to overcome the high moisture content in clays through its extreme compaction energy and the kneading effect of the padfoot drums.

The machine performs effectively and quickly on less challenging soils, too. The trench roller’s performance makes it productive in many applications, including pipeline construction; commercial, residential and industrial development; structure backfill work; confined workspaces; airport construction; electric and cable installation; dumpsite and landfill jobsites; and road sub-bases.

Key features include:

The infrared system. It is perfectly positioned with no dead angles. Integrated solar panels charge the transmitter, eliminating one jobsite task.

Easy access to service points. The hood opens wide to help the crew and technicians reach the desired service points and components.

Effective vibratory system. A low centre of gravity ensures the compaction vibration reaches its target. Also enabling effectiveness are a circular vibrator and 2 amplitude settings.

Two steering cylinders. They enable powerful and fast articulation and help make the ARR 1575 responsive and precise.

Articulation joint with oscillation. The maintenance-free joint helps provide optimal ground contact and compaction results. The oscillation in the articulation joint also reduces the chances of tipping.

A skid-steered version of the machine, the Ammann ARR 1585 Tier 4 Final Roller, also was introduced. Ammann is the only manufacturer to still offer both articulated and skid-steer versions.

Cedarapids CR662RM Tier 4 Final RoadMix MTV and paver advances durability, improves operator comfort

The CR662RM RoadMix can be used on all paving lifts, including the critical base layer, to virtually eliminate all forms of material and thermal segregation.

Designed as both a material transfer vehicle (MTV) and paver to significantly increase utilization rates, the rubber track Cedarapids CR662RM RoadMix from BOMAG features a new 260-hp (191-kW) Tier 4 Final Cummins diesel engine that delivers the power needed for high production applications. Boasting a low, 21-psi fully loaded ground contact pressure, the CR662RM can be used on all paving lifts, including the critical base layer, to virtually eliminate all forms of material and thermal segregation. Unlike MTVs with empty wheel loads in excess of 75 psi, the low-psi rubber track RoadMix machine does not cause rutting on the base layer, can cross bridges fully loaded and is transported to the jobsite like a 10-foot paver, so contractors can finish mainline and airport paving applications quickly, efficiently and with high mat quality.
