Thanks to the HC 50i (5 t / 11023 lbs, drum width 1.37 m / 53,9 in) and HC 70i (7 t / 15432 lbs, drum width 1.68 m / 66,1 in), the HC CompactLine series comfortably meets the requirements for compact earthwork rollers. Permanent all-wheel drive with anti-slip control and drive motors instead of a rear axle form the basis for exceptionally good gradeability and high ground clearance. The developers have also further improved and stabilized the handling with various adjustments to the chassis.
Both compactors are extremely short. In particular, the HC 70i is the world's shortest compactor in this weight class, at 4.40 meters (159,1 in). Combined with the 3-point articulation and the extremely short wheelbase, this results in very good driving and handling characteristics, ideal for compaction on narrow construction sites.
No specific language skills are required to operate the HC CompactLine. The logical arrangement, careful design and clear symbols on the operating elements make manual operations straightforward. The back-lit display ensures unambiguous operation, even in the dark. The arrangement of the steering wheel allows a clear view of and easy access to the dashboard.
Good visibility, safety and comfort
In terms of visibility, the small compactors offer very wide fields of vision in the open version or large window areas in the cab. A camera system with a monitor can also be added. High-quality LED work lighting is included as standard in the cab. All models in the HC CompactLine series offer convenient access to the ROPS/FOPS cab or to the open platform with ROPS, which is available with or without a protective roof and with the option of adding FOPS. The generous space offered by the completely redesigned cab with specially curved windows is unique in this market. In terms of ergonomics, the operator also benefits from the versatile adjustable seat system and a seat that can be moved to the side, wide-opening windows and draft-free ventilation. There are also plenty of storage areas, an optional USB connection and comfort options such as a tiltable steering column and an air-conditioning system.
