Start of production for the new Rammax 1575 CI articulated trench roller
12. July 2013



Following its introduction at the Bauma 2013, the latest generation of the articulated Rammax 1575 CI trench roller will go into production at the Langenthal site in Switzerland.


Ammann has more than 40 years’ experience in the construction of these special machines based on the Rammax product range, the original trench roller. New benchmarks have been set repeatedly over the course of time that have made operating the machines safer, more economic and more convenient.


Ammann has launched the new generation of articulated trench rollers in the form of the Rammax 1575 CI and has set new standards with regard to safety, technology and emissions. The water-cooled diesel engine from Yanmar is a guarantor for reliability, low noise generation and low fuel consumption and is fully compliant with the latest emission standards. The pendulum function of the articulated joint enables the machine to adapt to the substrate and ensures outstanding compaction results in the following areas:


• Trench and pipeline construction
• Backfilling for bridges and other structures
• Trench filling
• Development areas
• Embankment and landfill construction
• Base construction for roads and rail tracks
• Confined work spaces


Four powerful hydraulic engines are behind the outstanding traction and compaction results achieved by the Rammax 1575 CI. Two hydraulic steering cylinders guarantee dynamic handling and perfect manoeuvrability, even in the most confined spaces.


The maintenance-free articulated pendulum joint is unique in this class: it guarantees that all four drums remain in permanent contact with the substrate for ideal traction and compaction; in conjunction with the low centre of gravity it also increases stability against tipping.


A high degree of safety for both man and machine is ensured by tried and tested infrared technology. Solar cells integrated in the remote control ensure the machine is always ready for operation. Twilight is sufficient for charging.
