Hamm’s new compactors are said to offer high productivity and reliability

Hamm has added two new machines to its range of HC series compactors: the HC 110 and HC 130. These 11tonne and 13tonne units are available with a choice of either smooth or padfoot drums.

“Both models meet the MAR-I and UN ECE R96 (Tier 3) exhaust emission standards,” but will only go on sale in Brazil at this stage. However, they will be available on other markets in due course.

According to the firm: “The HC 110 and HC 130 compactors are characterised by high centrifugal forces and static line loads and, in combination with a drum width of 2,140mm, deliver high area performance. An efficient ECO mode enables diesel fuel savings without any negative effects on compaction performance.

“The frequency and compaction forces in ECO-mode remain consistently high, even at the reduced engine speed. A positive side-effect of this is a corresponding reduction of CO2 emissions. These machines impress with gradeability of up to 58%.”

Key features include: “Field-proven three-point articulation, which ensures excellent directional stability, outstanding stability when cornering and high resistance to tipping (and) automatic frequency setting. This function allows the driver to select the desired vibration frequency of 30 or 35Hz via the display, while the drive computer continuously regulates the volume flow in order to achieve the specified value.

The compactors are powered by a 101kW John Deere engine (and) all models offer options such as compaction measurement with the Hamm Compaction Meter, a process-data gateway, padfoot shells, LED lighting or an automatic vibration system.

Other equipment options including the new ROPS driver's cab with an optional heating and air-conditioning system, a collapsible weather canopy or ROPS/FOPS (Level 1) enable users to customise the compactors to meet their specific needs. All service and maintenance points are easily accessible at any time and thus ensure constant operational readiness.
