The updated Ammann ARW 65 provides two-in-one capabilities that make it the perfect fit for every construction company. The dual amplitude machines are favourites due to their ability to switch from high-amplitude settings for soils and aggregates, to lower amplitudes for asphalt and bituminous materials.
“While maintaining its core functions, with optimum compaction power and climbing ability, the redesign on the Ammann ARW 65 includes further improvements on the ergonomics including an improved handle with soft controls and an automatic parking brake which prevents the machine from rolling away.” says Keon Kardolus, ELB Equipment earth moving and construction sales manager.
“Additionally, there’s the height-adjustable guide handle which optimises operating comfort for operators of any height. The machine now also has a maximum reversing speed that has been reduced to 2.5 km/h (1.6 mph) which enables controlled working in reverse mode.”
He adds that the machine’s vibratory system allows for maximum compaction on various applications such as earthworks and asphalt, construction and repair of sidewalks, cycle paths, sports grounds, agricultural and forest access roads. The Ammann ARW 65’s compact design means that it can also be used in confined spaces while still offering maximum productivity.
Benefits of the improved design can further be categorised under productivity and serviceability. The machine is fully hydraulic which enables precise speed adjustment. It also allows for good side clearance enabling precise working next to walls and kerbs as well as an integrated sprinkler system which prevents asphalt from caking on the drums.”
In addition to ELB Equipment’s comprehensive aftermarket service to all its clients across South Africa, the Ammann ARW 65’s has simplified maintenance requirements for daily maintenance and does not require special tools. The machine can be driven without wear parts – the fully hydraulic drive system works without a high-maintenance centrifugal clutch and V belt.
Carefully considered improvements
