LANGENTHAL, Switzerland – Ammann’s new 11-ton single-drum roller offers exceptional compaction power – and exceptional savings on ownership costs after the sale.
The new ARS 110.2 T1 is equipped with a powerful and reliable Cummins 4BT3.9 diesel engine. No engine after-treatment (EAT) is required – one of many efforts to simplify service/maintenance and reduce costs.
Savings on time, fuel, and fluids
The compactor reflects Ammann’s ECOdrop philosophy, which makes products more environmentally friendly – and profitable, too. ECOdrop focuses on reduced fuel and fluids.
“The new roller requires 17% less engine oil and 5% less hydraulic oil than the previous generation of machines,” said Radek Remeš. “Both acquisition and disposal costs are lowered. These are savings that go directly to the business owner’s bottom line.”
A number of time-savers, in addition to eliminating EAT, have been built into the ARS 110.2:
- A large fuel tank (310 lt) and low fuel consumption ensure at least three working shifts without re-fuelling, lowering costs connected with fuel logistics on the jobsite.
- The vibratory system is placed in an oil bath with a self-lubricated mechanism and additional water cooling. The exceptional durability and performance of the entire vibratory system maximize productivity and lifetime.
- The drum, with a thickness of 25 mm (0,98 inches), lasts for the life of the machine.
- The engine compartment is easily accessible, with a robust design that protects all major components during operation.
- All maintenance and servicing points can be reached from the ground for quick work – and quick returns to the jobsite.
The new Ammann ARS 110.2 can be placed in the 11 or 12-tonne machine weight category. An additional weight increase kit (+1 ton) is available to achieve a higher operating weight and static load.
The roller’s compaction power and manoeuvrability make it a perfect fit for mid- and large-scale projects such as roads/highways and industrial zones.
Engine power output is 76 kW (102 hp) and can run on high-sulphur fuels.
The powerful engine and high-pressure hydraulic system provide excellent traction and compaction effectiveness.
The robust, four-bearing vibratory system hosts a two-stage vibratory system, which generates eccentric forces of 275 kN at low frequency (32 Hz) and 160 kN at high frequency (35 Hz). High value of both amplitudes (1,9 mm high amplitude and 0,85 mm low amplitude) ensures consistent compaction throughout the depth of the layer.
A smooth drum is standard. Available as an option is a Padfoot shell kit that introduces tamping into the compaction process for improved results on cohesive soils.
The ARS 110.2 drums are designed and manufactured in-house, which ensures high quality and extreme durability. They have a working width of 2130mm (83.9 inches).
The ergonomic operator platform is fully insulated from vibration. It prevents most of the vibration from reaching the body and arms of the driver.
The cab version is quiet and offers a wide range of advanced technical solutions that improve safety and comfort. There is 1x1m visibility in all directions to enable productive and safe operation. Slidable side cab windows make it easy to reach the mirrors, which can be adjusted from the operator’s seat.
The steering column with integrated dashboard is robust and intuitive. It provides all the necessary status information for accurate machine control and operation. All the switches needed for control are located on the dashboard and the right armrest.
Control is simple and intuitive – operators can learn to run the compactor in 10 minutes.
The proprietary Ammann ACE system (Ammann Compaction Expert) is available as an option. The system enables easy monitoring of compaction progress for operators and helps them more effectively control the compaction process.
