Boels takes delivery of plate compactors

By Murray Pollok15 September 2021

Boels Rental is specifying the use of Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engines in its fleet, with the latest new additions being Ammann APF 15/40 forward-moving vibratory plate compactors fitted with Vanguard 160, 3.7 kW single-cylinder engines.

Boels’ Director of Fleet Operations, Guy Cremer, said the rental company use Vanguard 200 engines on Benassi turf cutters in 2019; “This has allowed us to cut equipment service intervals almost by half and decrease our oil wastage and recycling considerably, reducing the environmental impact of our fleet.

“The engine’s TransportGuard technology has also resolved a common rental problem: customers forgetting to shut off the fuel during transport. We’ve experienced fewer unscheduled oil changes and our equipment is ready to rent when customers need it, increasing our ROI.”

Cremer said the Ammann APF 15/40 compactors were “a perfect all-rounder for soil, asphalt, and paving stone compaction, plus it is easy to operate.”

Patrick Stellwag, Key Account Manager Rental at Ammann Group added; “We’re always looking for additional ways to support our customers’ by delivering innovation that helps them achieve their business goals.

“The Vanguard 200 engine has proven to complement our compactors perfectly, and we’re confident the 160 model will do the same.”
