Top Lift Adds Ammann Equipment to its Lineup
VILLE ST-LAURENT, QUEBEC – Top Lift Enterprises has been named the new Ammann Dealer for light and heavy compaction equipment in Quebec.
Top Lift has two branches in Quebec: one in Ville St.-Laurent, the other in Sherbrooke. Top Lift’s branch in Ontario already carries Ammann equipment.
Top Lift is a leader in heavy equipment sales and distribution in Canada – and has been for more than 26 years. The company offers a wide range of new and pre-owned heavy equipment for sale and rental, and services a diverse range of customers in several major industries.
Ammann is headquartered in Switzerland and has an extensive lineup of light and heavy compaction-related products in North America.
Top Lift will have access to all Ammann compaction equipment. The lineup includes:
LIGHT COMPACTION EQUIPMENT
Ammann Rammers feature the best forward movement in the industry, helping contractors in all applications work productively and ultimately achieve compaction targets. Their industry-leading balance and forward-moving ability make them the tool of choice for contractors and rental agencies.
The rammers also are so easy to use that operators of all experience levels are able to perform productively. The operators are more comfortable, too, because of the rammers’ reduced-vibration handle.
The product line of Ammann Vibratory Plate Compactors ranges from a light 54 kg to a much heavier 825 kg – with many models in between.
All Ammann plates are easy to operate, making them ideal for rental fleets. They also are versatile, with an ability to easily adjust to varied applications. Many are available with diesel or petrol engines.
When it comes to production, some of these machines move as quickly as soil compactors. They are high-climbers, too, with various models performing on grades as steep as 30 per cent.
Ammann Vibratory Plate Compactors are broken into three categories:
- APF Series: Forward-moving vibratory plates
- APR Series: Reversible vibratory plates
- APH Series: Fully hydrostatic reversible vibratory plates
Ammann Walk-Behind Rollers combine two applications in a single machine. The operator chooses whether to utilise a high-amplitude setting for work on gravel/soil or a low-amplitude setting for asphalt and bituminous materials. The walk-behind rollers are offered with two alternative diesel engine types. Both deliver great power to the machine and fulfill global emission standards.
Ammann Add-On Compactors fit on excavators, which use their reach to compact in hard-to-access places such as deep, narrow trenches and particularly steep grades. They also can provide more power than most other compaction machines for such applications.
Ammann Trench Rollers, also called multipurpose compactors, perform well in cohesive soil types, such as clays, that can be very difficult to compact. The ARR 1585 is able to overcome the high moisture content in clays through its extreme compaction energy and the kneading effect of its padfoot drums.
The machines perform effectively and quickly on less challenging soils, too.
SOIL AND ASPHALT COMPACTORS
Compaction is about reaching goals in the fewest passes possible. Ammann soil and asphalt compactors provide that needed efficiency through industry-leading technology and an ability to direct more force toward the target and away from the machine. The result: quality results in fewer passes and a more productive and profitable jobsite.
Ammann Soil Compactors help contractors tackle whatever challenges they encounter. It’s hard to know what the next job will bring: Clay, sand or something in between? Will it require traditional compacting methods or will you have to adjust amplitude and frequency because of sensitive surroundings? Either way the roller must produce. The single drum rollers provide industry-leading compaction output – whatever the application.
What might initially appear as comfort on Ammann Tandem Rollers actually translates into jobsite productivity. For example, conveniently located, intuitive controls make the operator’s job easier – and help him be more efficient, too. Reduced vibration to the cab means less operator fatigue – and more force applied to the compaction target. The list goes on, but the story remains the same: Operator comfort is synonymous with productivity.
Ammann Pneumatic Tyred Rollers provide the kneading and sealing effect that is so critical on jobsites. The tyred rollers perform equally well on both asphalt and aggregates. Furthering their flexibility, air pressure adjustments can be made without the operator ever leaving the cab. Ballast packages easily can be added or removed to ensure the most efficient machine and processes are provided.
