Homogeneous weight distribution and more thanks to 3-point articulation
The Hamm compactors are equipped with a 3-point articulated joint that offers outstanding driving and steering characteristics. With its 3 joints, the Hamm solution is unique on the market. It guarantees unsurpassed directional stability and driving comfort. The chassis design ensures homogeneous weight distribution on drum and wheels – even at full steering angle. Moreover, the compactors can effectively absorb impacts, also in uneven terrain. Tilting when driving along curves is no issue, either.
Hammtronic and ECO mode support reduction of CO2
Increasing price pressure, rising fuel prices and the need to protect the environment make efficient and economical machines urgently necessary. With the Hammtronic, HAMM´s electronic machine management system, and the ECO mode, the single-drum rollers of the HC series meet exactly these requirements. So, Hammtronic is standard in all compactors of this series. It enables optimised load distribution leading to tremendous gradeability and low fuel consumption. It adjusts the diesel engine speed to meet the power requirements of the individual drives. A highly efficient ECO mode enables fuel savings of up to 20 % and the reduction of CO2 and noise emissions. As an option, the models of HC series also offer manual traction control to transfer the torque just like required.
Numerous drum options and drum drive
The Chinese HAMM single-drum rollers of the HC series offer a constant high compaction performance, regardless of whether they are equipped with a smooth drum or padfoot drum ("P" models). Customers who need both types of drum can use the optional padfoot shell kit, consisting of three segments. It enables easy conversion of the smooth drum to a padfoot drum, making it ready to compact cohesive soil. The "D" models (HC 208i D, HC 228i D and HC 268i D) have a drum drive, such as the models with padfoot drum (HC 208i P, HC 228i P and HC 268i P). This drive helps to scale gradients of up to more than 60 % with confidence.
When it comes to maintenance, the Langfang-made HAMM compactors are easy to handle because of their engine that is freely accessible from all sides. Thus the service is fast and uncomplicated. The hood opens towards the operator´s platform via gas springs.
