Ammann Unveils New Rammers
Ammann announces the release of ATR 60 and ATR 68 Rammers. The new machines will be available in August 2017.
The ATR (Ammann Tamper Rammer) models replace the ACR Rammers. The ATR family maintains key features of the ACR lineup, including their industry-leading compaction output and forward movement.
The new ATR machines are available in Classic and Premium versions to ensure the right machine is available for all customers and their needs.
Specifically, the new models are the ATR 60 Classic Rammer, ATR 60 Premium Rammer, ATR 68 Classic Rammer and ATR 68 Premium Rammer. The ACR 70 D Diesel Rammer will remain in the Ammann portfolio.
The Classic versions are the successors to the previous Ammann ACR Rammer line. The machines are easy to use, highly robust, durable and equipped with the Honda GX100 petrol engine.
The Premium rammers include new features to meet the strictest restrictions for emissions and operation vibration levels. They utilise a Honda GXR120 engine.
Key features of the Premium rammers include:
- An optimised gas lever, shaped and positioned for easy reach and operation
- A patented handle concept, which limits hand-arm vibrations to protect the operator and meets the strictest regulations
- An additional air filter, which extends the life of the machine
The new rammers – both Premium and Classic – have standard working widths of 280 mm. Optional feet can provide widths up to 330 mm and lengths of 340 mm. A reduction foot is available.
Weights of the new rammers range from 62 kg to 68 kg.
