Designed for high productivity

The APR 30/50 maintain the easy handling that is common to smaller reversible vibratory plates, but they add productivity potential with working widths of 50 cm. That added capacity helps cover ground quickly, yet also maintains the “on-the-spot” capabilities, enabling a focus on particularly tough-to-compact areas.

Biofuel Use

Ammann diesel-burning machines are able to utilise hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), a biofuel made from waste that reduces CO2 emissions by up to 90%.

Hydrostatic steering

The hydrostatic forward and reverse steering of APR plates enables quick directional changes and the ability to compact in tight and hard-to-reach spaces.

Industry-leading low HAV levels

An innovative handle concept lowers the hand-arm vibration (HAV) values on Ammann APR plates to a level of less than 2.5 m/sec², making work more comfortable and safer. The vibration levels are so low that safety codes do not require documentation of operator hours.

+ better machine control
+ reduced operator fatigue
+ optimal operator health and safety

Intuitive operation and safety

The handle provides ideal grip and enables simple, intuitive machine operation by simply pushing or pulling. The open design of the handle prevents machine damage that can result from accidental lifting. The handle folds for easy transport.

Built-in durability

A robust and durable frame protects the plate from tough jobsites or improper use. The open design grants easy access for service and machine operation, ensuring the proper maintenance is undertaken to maximise machine life. The centrifugal clutch and wear resistant V belt are well protected by an additional cover that keeps out water and dirt.

Built-in efficiency

The hydrostatic setting enables “on-the-spot” vibration in particularly challenging areas. The machine essentially hovers – no forward or reverse movement is required – while providing maximum compaction output that enables quick results.

Built-in safety

The innovative handle improves safety by reducing HAV values below 2.5 m/sec2 while also enabling precise control. The operator simply pushes or pulls the handle to engage the machine in forward or reverse. No separate controls or steering are required.
