“The Ammann ARS 122 soil compactor provides outstanding productivity and reliability. The powerful engine and heavy-duty hydrostatic drive of the wheels ensures great traction and travel performance at lower operating cost. The roller is suitable for compaction of a wide range of soil, from silt to crushed stones,” explained Keon Kardolus, ELB Equipment, earthmoving and construction sales manager.
He adds that due to the compactor utilising Ammann’s effective vibratory system, with varied amplitude settings as well as energy being driven into the material and away from the operator; the Swiss manufacturer has ensured the ARS 122 outdoes its competitors on the field.
“This compactor offers operators hydraulic propulsion of wheels with independent hydro motors (and no axles). Furthermore, there is a low centre of gravity for stability and manoeuvrability and better ground clearance,” adds Keon.
Other key features of the Ammann ARS 122 include the clear dashboard layout which enables easy and safe operation. The compactor also has a fully isolated operator platform for maximum comfort. With the rising cost of fuel, another notable feature is the compactor’s fuel efficiency due to the highly durable Cummins engine.
