The quick-change toolholder system brings flexibility
A few simple steps is all it takes to fit a wide range of tools in the drum's 150 quick-change toolholders. The design of the quick-change toolholders is just what you would expect from HAMM – well thought out and ergonomically outstanding. When working on the design, for example, care was taken to ensure that the chisels are resistant to soiling in the holders, making them easy to swap. Incidentally: The tools are not destroyed during the changing process but can be repeatedly used until they are worn out.
Two types of chisel available
The HAMM programme currently includes two different chisels for crushing or loosening: A classic chisel and a special mining chisel for heavy-duty jobs. Their geometries together with the integral solid carbide tips are specially designed for materials with different compressive strengths.
A huge range of potential applications
The range of available tools results in an exceptionally wide application spectrum for the VC compactors with crusher drum. Fitted with chisels, the crusher drum breaks up rock layers consisting of basalt, granite or minerals of comparable compressive strength as well as mixed soils, while compacting the soil to a great depth. Road building applications include homogenisation of rock as well as compaction during cold recycling. The VC compactors are equally effective in crushing concrete rubble for recycling. Potential applications include working in rocky terrain: Many applications are possible, from preliminary rock breaking or loosening to the preparation and maintenance of access ways in quarries, right up to track laying in tunnels or mines. Equipped with padfoot inserts, the machine can compact cohesive soils. This application increases the efficiency over that of a conventional padfoot roller, because when compacting very abrasive, fine-grain minerals, the padfoot inserts can simply be replaced as wearing parts, rather than replacing the complete drum.
