HAMM has further increased the high level of operator comfort in the cab through numerous storage compartments, over 20% more tread and around 30% more volume, less vibration load and a reduced noise level. A new heating and air-conditioning system, the Easy Drive operating concept, the comfortable steering system and a modern ventilation concept round off the comfort offered by a sophisticated construction machine. Furthermore, HAMM provides new special equipment that increases seat rotation 70°. There is also the option to incorporate an auxiliary heater. The operators benefit from the modified engine cooling air routing on compactors with an open platform: Fresh air is drawn in from above behind the operator's platform and the hot exhaust air is discharged at the rear of the machine. This means that the heated air does not affect the driver.
Great day and night visibility
HAMM has improved visibility even further through this design. Here, in particular, the design of the bonnet with viewing channel allows a clear view to the rear. 10-fold lighting with economical LED lamps is available as an option to provide plenty of light whilst working in the dark. The exterior rear-view mirrors are installed to be low-vibration and they can be adjusted from the operator's platform. The exterior rear-view mirrors can be adjusted from the operator’s platform and are installed to be low-vibration. After switching off the machine, the Coming Home function provides additional safety as the light remains switched on for a brief period before the spotlights are deactivated automatically.
Ready for a digital construction site
The HC series is well prepared for the quality and communication requirements of the future. The "Smart Doc" app, which was developed by HAMM, graphically displays all of the key compaction parameters and compaction progress whilst logging the measured rigidity and position data. Thanks to this app, even inexperienced drivers can immediately see which areas have been sufficiently compacted and which areas still require compaction. HAMM will be upgrading the app during 2023 with functions that will network the rollers on the construction site (M2M = machine-to-machine) and exchange data via a cloud (M2C = machine-to-cloud).
Maintenance via the JD Link telematics system
HAMM provides the JD Link telematics system for maintenance and repairs and operational planning. It visualizes the performance data of the rollers in a compact overview in real time. In addition to live data such as fuel consumption, fill levels or engine load, position data, error messages and service intervals can also be called up at any time and from any location.
