Multiquip Inc. finalized an agreement with Switzerland’s Ammann Schweiz AG to serve as the exclusive distributor for Ammann’s tandem vibratory rollers in North America, plus in several Latin American and Caribbean nations.

Under terms of the agreement, Multiquip will market 1.5- to 5-ton weight class tandem and combination rollers.

The rollers are the next generation of Ammann’s AV Series asphalt rollers and emphasize maximum job site performance with high frequency vibration, operator comfort, safety features, and a maintenance-free service concept.

“We are excited about this opportunity as it completes the MQ line of confined area and medium range construction equipment,” said Multiquip President Roger Euliss.

Marketed as the AR Series tandem vibratory rollers, the units will carry the MQ/Rammax brand name to complement Multiquip’s full line of light- and medium-sized compaction equipment, which already includes rammers, plate compactors, and trench and asphalt rollers.

There are 10 diesel-powered models in the AR Series with drum widths from 31 to 51 in. (80 to 130 cm).

Centrifugal forces range from 2,925 lbs. (13 kN) on the AR-16 to 15,060 lbs. (67 kN) on the AR-40.

Standard features include folding ROPS, dual frequency and amplitude, back-up alarms, pressurized water systems with dual filtration, noise attenuation, sliding seats, 100 percent side clearance through full flush drums, drum offset and lockable instrument panels.
