The new Ammann ART 280 Hydrostatic Tyred Roller features a redesigned cab and a ballasting system that can be quickly and significantly adjusted.
The compactor also utilises the Smart Machine Reset Traction System. Every time the compactor is started, the system automatically measures the machine’s weight and determines maximum speed and brake configurations for optimal safety.
Ammann’s modular, easy-load ballasting system enables the machine weight to be adjusted from 9 tonnes to 28 tonnes in a single hour with the help of only a forklift. This translates into a load-per-tyre adjustment from 1.125 kg to 3.5 kg.
The ease and weight of the ballast adjustment are unique to the market. The system enables use of varied ballasting materials including water, steel, concrete and sand. The air-on-the-run system allows easy control of tyre pressure from the cab.
The Ammann ART 280 is available with engines that meet varied emissions levels. The compactor performs well on both asphalt and soil.
The compactor is powered by the latest U.S. EPA Tier 4f/EU Stage 4 engine from Deutz with EGR, DOC and SCR technology. In less regulated countries, the compactor features a U.S. EPA Tier 3/EU Stage 3A Deutz engine with EGR and muffler.
