At 160 kg, the APA 20/30 is the smallest Ammann Add-On Compactor. It works with mini excavators in the range of 2 tonnes to 5 tonnes, often in gardening and landscaping applications.

The APA 20/30 can be mounted in a few minutes and does not require fully hydraulic quick coupling devices. Only two hydraulic hoses are needed.

The machine is equipped with a twin-shaft directional exciter featuring a relatively high frequency and low amplitude, which helps protect both the excavator and surrounding buildings.
