An Indian contractor tested an Ammann ARX 91 Articulated Tandem Roller on a jobsite and was extremely pleased with the results.
The Ammann ARX 91 “was able to achieve the desired compaction at our jobsite in fewer passes, which resulted in overall savings in fuel/diesel costs,” according to Mr. Anurag Surana, General Manager – Mechanical at Prakash Asphalting & Toll Highways India Ltd. He mentioned the ARX 91 was 5% to 8% more fuel efficient than other products in its segment.
Mr. Anurag Surana further added that the operators were pleased with the Ammann compactor:
“Our operator was also very comfortable driving the ARX 91, with excellent visibility to the front & rear drums till the edge even while compacting closer to the edges. All the controls are conveniently located on the operator platform providing operator comfort with zero fatigue allowing the operator to work longer hours at a stretch.”
The ease of access to service points and Ammann’s support drew a special praise.
In conclusion, Mr. Anurag Surana stated, “We would consider procuring the Ammann Articulated Tandem Roller Model ARX 91 highly in the future for our fleet.”
