Battery Powered eARX26-2 Light Tandem Vibrating Roller

The Ammann eARX26-2 Light Tandem Roller features a fully electric drive that can operate for up to 18 hours without recharging


The eARX 26-2 2.5 ton tandem roller is equipped with a powerful battery pack with electric motors for the main drive and vibratory circuits. Gone are the conventional combustible (diesel) engine, hydrostatic drive and cooling circuits.

Key is the advanced 48-volt battery pack with a capacity of 600 Ah/31,5kWh. The pack’s LiFePO4 technology is unique because each internal battery cell is independently protected. This makes the entire pack flame-resistant, increasing safety.

All electric drive and vibratory motors are equipped with a recuperation mechanism as standard. When the machine stops, or when vibration is turned off, the electric motors continue to generate power – and send it to the main battery to increase charge.

The roller, with a drum width of 1200 mm, features a new articulation joint that enables quick drum adjustment from in-line to offset configurations. Rollers that are offset are able to work close to obstructions. Operators need watch only one drum, knowing the second will be a safe distance from the obstruction. The in-line setting, which enables equal distribution of compaction forces, is preferred on more open jobsites.

The machine fits well on sound-sensitive jobsites such as crowded locations, city centres, and historical and residential areas. The eARX 26-2 is a great fit for night work, inside buildings and at underground jobsites.

Intuitive control and easy-to-explain operation are big benefits for those who provide training to end users, for those who rent for a short time, or for less-skilled operators.
