Hamm introduce new HC CompactLine compactors
Latest soil compactors offer simple operation, high productivity, and increased safety
HAMM have unveiled their new HC CompactLine series soil compactors, replacing the outgoing H CompactLine series with immediate effect. The HC CompactLine models – the HC 50i, HC 50i P, HC 70i, HC 70i P, and HC70i VIO – have all been designed and engineered to offer impressive gradeability, improved operation, and increased driver comfort and safety.
Powered by Kubota engines that meet US EPA Tier 4/EU Stage V emission standards, the latest Hamm compacts feature permanent all-wheel drive, with anti-slip control and drive motors (instead of a rear axle) to ensure exceptionally good gradeability and high ground clearance. Hamm have also further improved and stabilized the handling of the machines with various adjustments to the chassis.
With operating weights of five tonnes and seven tonnes, combined with drum widths of 1.37m and 1.68m, respectively, the HC 50i and HC 70i compactors have been specially developed to deliver reliable performance for compact earthworks projects.
Both models are extremely short, compact, and agile. According to Hamm, the new HC CompactLine units are designed not to be higher than 3m and this includes having a ROPS/FOPS cab, plus a protective roof.
For enhanced safety, the Hamm compacts offer a very wide field of vision when operating within the cab whilst high-quality LED work lighting is included as standard. Optional features, such as a camera system with a monitor can be added.
Hamm’s Eco mode now comes as standard on all new HC CompactLine series models, to provide lower ownership costs, reduced fuel consumption, and environmentally friendly operation. In addition, an optional automatic engine stop reduces diesel consumption further. It automatically switches off the engine under certain conditions, for example, during prolonged downtime.
The new HC CompactLine compactors are available in smooth drums or padfoot drums with vibration. Two-piece padfoot shells can be retrofitted for the smooth drum. The HC 70i is also available with a VIO smooth drum that can compact either with vibration or oscillation. All models of the HC CompactLine can have a levelling blade added.
