Freienbach Switzerland, 19 February 2020 – Boels Rental is introducing a new brand of compactors in its construction rental fleet: the Ammann APF 15/40 forward-moving vibratory plate compactor. On Boels’ request, Ammann replaced the unit’s standard engine with a Vanguard® 200 single-cylinder, 4.9 Gross kW*, generating more power and halving service intervals, resulting in reduced oil wastage and recycling. The first batch of compactors is expected to be delivered early March 2020.
Easy handling, for challenging materials and environments
The Ammann APF 15/40 forward-moving vibratory plate compactor is ideal for rental companies and their customers. Easy to operate, it offers a perfect allrounder for soil, asphalt and paving stone compaction. The compactor’s high-technology exciter unit provides the forward-moving power needed to handle challenging materials and steep grades, while requiring no maintenance. State of the art guide handles with low hand-arm vibration protect the operator from unwanted vibrations and enables precise machine control.
