By Leila Steed08 November 2022
Swiss construction machinery manufacturer Ammann demonstrates its new eARX 26-2 tandem roller at Bauma 2022. An electric version of the ARX 26-2 tandem roller, the machine is designed to operate on narrow construction sites or along curbs.
The machine can be charged in three hours via quick charging or in 12 hours with an onboard charger, using single phase or three phase standard mains electricity.
Speaking of machine’s efficiency, Ammann’s Commercial Manager Leos Tymel said the machine is designed to optimise energy usage. “We are not only using the energy from the battery; we are also returning it to the machine - what does the roller do? It starts, drives, and stops. During the stops the energy returns through re-charge.”
