Ammann rollers working at great heights
06. September 2011


The reason why Ammann compaction machines are at work around the world under the toughest conditions has long been a well-known fact: modern construction equipment from Ammann offers not only a high productive value but also the best price and best performance in various categories. An Ammann ASC 100 tandem roller is currently working on an exceptional task in north-west Peru: the machine is compacting a new road at the heart of the Sierra at more than 4,000 metres above sea level.

Tried and tested productive efficiency in Peru
The challenges facing construction machines in the unaccustomed heights of the Andes are significant: the fuel injection system on compaction machines needs to be adjusted and the flow of the hydraulic pump throttled. In this particular case the necessary adjustments to the Ammann ASC 100 tandem roller were minimal despite working at such extreme heights.
The training undertaken by the machine operators is another contributing factor to the success in the Peruvian Andes. It ensures that the teams operating the Ammann ASC 100 tandem roller work safely and efficiently.
