One platform for all markets
For the HP series, HAMM has developed a uniform platform as the basis for all model variants in every market throughout the world. Based on this, HAMM is also continuing to offer the pneumatic-tyre rollers in different basic versions: On the one hand, the HP 180 or HP 180i model with a minimum working weight of 8 t and a maximum operating weight of 18 t and, on the other hand, the HP 280 or HP 280i model with working weights between 10 t and maximum 28 t. In doing so, HAMM provides the individual markets with the respective model to suit their regional demands with regard to weight classes and equipment versions. The HP 180i and HP 280i models (both with Easy Drive operating concept) comply with the requirements of the emissions standards EPA Tier 4 and EU Stage V, while the HP 180 and HP 280 models are designed for Tier 3 markets.
Perfect visibility and easy operation
What is extremely important to the driver? Simple and intuitive operation, along with the ergonomically optimised driver's platform. When combined with the shape of the asymmetrical frame, this therefore results in perfect visibility – for models with a cab as well as for models with ROPS. Right from one of the first times the machine was used in Turkey, it was clear to see how easy the machine is to operate. At a construction site near Ankara, an HP 280 was used during the renovation of a 3.5 km long section of a four-lane motorway. Construction Manager Gökçe Tokul von Onur Contracting Inc. was impressed with the new pneumatic-tyre roller and stated: "The driver was able to operate the machine immediately with minimal instruction. Colleagues from the workshop reported back to me that the fuel consumption is extraordinarily low."
