There are 24 models in the conventional CompactLine at present, with weights ranging from 1.6tonnes up to 4.8tonnes as well as drum widths from 800-1,380mm and an array of specifications and features. Hamm has offered emissions-free electric variants of the most popular units however.

The new electric models feature Li-ion batteries with 23kWh capacity, allowing operation for a full working day without the need to recharge. Included in the electric range is a model featuring both oscillation and vibration, the first such model available on the market. This last unit will be of particular benefit for working in urban areas as it is quiet in operation while the oscillation system means it does not transmit vibration to the surrounding area.
