Production of Ammann's new ARX tandem rollers is launched
31. August 2012



For more than 143 years, this Swiss family firm Ammann has maintained a successful presence on the market as a provider of equipment to the construction sector. Over 10,000 tandem rollers in the AVM-2 range of midsize models have left the Ammann factory in Langenthal (Switzerland) during recent years, and these machines are doing their job reliably day after day, in many locations across the globe. Now, one era is drawing to a close – and a new one is dawning!


Following their premiere at the Intermat in Paris, the new ARX generation of light tandem rollers will go into production in autumn 2012. Ammann's completely remodelled double vibratory rollers are specifically designed to compact asphalt and substrates on smaller and medium-sized building sites. The new ARX series from Ammann comprises 13 different models in weight categories from 1.5 to 4.8 tonnes, with working widths from 820 to 1380 mm.


A new hydraulic concept coupled with the latest Yanmar diesel engine technology is responsible for a significant increase in efficiency. It allows the diesel engine to run at a much lower speed, effectively reducing consumption and noise emissions. A generously designed operator station with vibration insulation, a simple and clearly laid out operating panel and the multi-functional drive lever form a unit that any driver will welcome for ergonomic reasons and more.
