Hamm's productive soil compactors offer increased performance
The recently unveiled H5i and H7i single drum models share many features with the larger machines in the Hamm line-up. The compactors are said to feature compact designs, while also being easy to operate and offering good gradeability for use on challenging terrain.
Good ground clearance and tractive effort are claimed due to the installation of wheel motors rather than a conventional axle. In addition the machines are compact in design, with the larger H7i measuring only 4.4m in length, which along with the three-point swivel joint, helps ensure versatility for use on urban construction sites where working space may be limited.
Power is supplied by a Tier 4 Final/Stage IV compliant 55kW diesel for both variants, while the drums are available in smooth and padfoot configurations and the latter option includes the newly designed two-part padfoot segments. Other features include a new control panel is based on the proven design used in the firm’s successful HD CompactLine, with the layout of the steering wheel allows an unobstructed view of the high visibility display. Visibility for the driver is also said to be good, boosting safety and ease of operation.
