Drum drive and homogeneous weight distribution
All new models are equipped with a drum drive. This helps in scaling gradients of up to 61% with confidence. Moreover, the Hamm soil compactors are equipped with a 3-point articulated joint that is unique on the market and offers outstanding driving and steering characteristics, guaranteeing unsurpassed directional stability and driving comfort. The chassis design ensures homogeneous weight distribution across the drum and the wheels – even at the full steering angle. Moreover, the new soil compactors can effectively absorb impacts, even on rough terrain, and can also handle tilting when driving along curves.
Hammtronic and ECO mode support reduction of CO2 emissions
Increasing price pressure, rising fuel prices, and the need to protect the environment render efficient and economical machines indispensable. With the Hammtronic electronic machine management system and a powerful ECO mode, the soil compactors of the HC series meet precisely these requirements. Hammtronic is standard in all soil compactors of this series, enabling optimized load distribution that leads to tremendous gradeability and low fuel consumption. It adjusts the diesel engine speed to meet the power requirements of the individual drives. In addition, the efficient ECO mode generates fuel savings of up to 20% and results in reduced CO2 and noise emissions. Furthermore, these models also offer manual traction control to transfer the torque as required. As an option, customers can choose models with a differential gear for even greater traction.
Smooth drum, padfoot drum – or both
The Hamm soil compactors of the HC series offer a consistently high compaction performance, regardless of whether they are equipped with a smooth drum or padfoot drum ("P" models). Customers who need both drum types can use the optional padfoot shell kit, consisting of three components. This enables easy conversion of the smooth drum to a padfoot drum, making it ready to compact cohesive soil.
When it comes to maintenance, the new Hamm soil compactors offer a huge advantage in terms of their engine, since this is freely accessible from all sides. In addition, the key points for daily checks are located on one side of the machine, and the hood opens towards the operator’s platform via gas springs, all of which make maintenance tasks fast and uncomplicated.
