Ammann is rolling on the jobsite

The Ammann ARX 140 Heavy Articulated Tandem Roller fits well on a wide range of jobsites but is most productive if used in high volume asphalt applications such as highways, industrial areas, or airfields. Its high static ‘dead’ weight is ideally suited as a finishing/ironing static roller or as a compaction tool for sensitive materials. The roller extends the product range from 9 tons up to 16 tons of operating weight. The machine design, drum construction, operator workplace and engine compartment are among the key features.

Immediately apparent on the ARX 140 is the absence of front and rear crossbeams along with a new symmetrical cab that improves safety and productivity. Well-designed and positioned fuel and water tanks add to the impressive appearance and improve access to components. The design changes make the machines more compact while improving sight lines to all drum surfaces and edges. The 360° visibility from the operator station establishes a new industry standard, providing operators with an exceptional view of the entirety of the machine, improving productivity and safety. The spacious cab is also extremely quiet. It is suspended and isolated from external heat and vibration from the operator station, keeping operators comfortable, fresh and focused.

The advanced operator station has integrated, centralised controls that are located near the operator and easy to reach at all times, regardless of the seat position, which reduces reaction times and improves safety. The machine is equipped with fingertip steering (FTS), making it more operator-friendly, comfortable and easy to control. The FTS replaces the traditional steering wheel and allows operators to keep both hands on the armrests for improved comfort. The FTS also offers advanced palm support that prevents fatigue and injuries from repetitive motions. A new 10-inch control display helps operators control all machine functions simply, safely and quickly. Additionally, it provides an overview of fluid levels, indicators and machine status and warnings. The display is installed on an adjustable support, located in front of the operator, and moves with the seat for easy viewing.

Serviceability, reduced downtime and total cost of ownership are essential to profitability. Machine data is collected from all regions and is now reflected in innovative machine development as well as the ECOdrop philosophy. ECOdrop is a technical solution that makes the machines mostly maintenance free. Maintenance is faster and more convenient thanks to a highly accessible engine compartment with a robust design that protects all major components. All maintenance and service points are accessible from the ground. Machines are equipped with external draining points for all operational fluids such as engine oil, hydraulic oil and coolant. All rollers are equipped with an auto-diagnostics system that communicates with service technicians. External testing ports on hydraulic components enable quick diagnosis and reduce machine downtime.

Perkins® 904 Series

  • A compact 4 cylinder engine range providing excellent performance in power, peak and low speed torque, fuel consumption and transient response.
  • Reliability and easy service access are integral to the design of the engines, which are available with a range of installation options to enable OEMs to minimise the size of the engine bay of their machines.
  • Fuel consumption is optimised to match the operating cycles of a wide range of off-highway machines. No additional fluids or additives are required which lowers operating costs and operator training.
  • The range has been designed using the latest predictive engineering methods, combined with an extensive field validation programme to ensure reliable power in the toughest off-highway conditions.
  • A modular engine concept allows OEMs to design one engine installation for many different regions. This reduces cost and development time for cooling pack, mounting, hydraulic and control interfaces.
  • Hydraulic tappets, multi-vee belts and 500 hour service intervals enable low cost maintenance.
