Nick Johnson reports from the Bauma plant exhibition in Munich which, despite the restrictions to air travel caused by volcanic ash, still attracted over 415,000 visitors from more than 200 countries. With 3,150 exhibitors from 53 countries occupying 16 large exhibition halls and a huge outside area, Bauma 2010 was bigger than ever.

“World’s largest trench roller” from Ammann

A particular highlight was the new Rammax RW2500, claimed to be the world’s largest trench roller. Now produced in the Ammann factory at Langenthal in Switzerland, this latest Rammax supersedes the previous RW2000 and RW2900 models. The infrared remote-controlled RW2500 is a rigid frame, skid steer machine

that weighs up to 2.5 tonne and can be fitted with two sizes of sheepsfoot drums to provide rolling widths of 1000mm or 1200mm. It is powered by a 24.2kW Yanmar engine with an average fuel consumption of 3.9 litres/hour. Claimed compaction force is over 120kN with a frequency of 41Hz and an amplitude of 1.7mm. Ammann also displayed its new generation ACR60 and ACR68 vibratory

rammers.The ACR60, with its operating weight of 60kg, is a new addition to the range, whilst the new 68kg class ACR68 will effectively replace the established AVS68-4. Bauma visitors also had the opportunity to inspect the compaction measuring system that Ammann is now introducing on some of its vibrating plate compactors. The ACEeco system is being offered on the fully hydraulic reversible plate models AVH5020, AVH5030, AVH6020, AVH6030 and AV100-20.The ACE system is available on the AVH6030 and AVH100-20 reversing plates.
