Hamm to present a packed programme at ConExpo
By Catrin Jones17 February 2023
Hamm has announced that it will be presenting several world premieres as well as innovative further developments. The innovations range from electrified tandem rollers, compactors, pneumatic-tire rollers and pivot-steered tandem rollers, right through to the Smart Doc compaction app for self-monitoring and documentation.
A main focus for the company is the electric tandem rollers in the HD CompactLine series. They are said to compact with zero local emissions and are also extremely quiet whilst the operation and compaction parameters are identical to the diesel-driven machines. The rollers are expected to be available in the USA from the end of 2023.
With the HC series, Hamm is bringing together all compactors with an operating weight of 24,251–55,116 lbs (11–25 t) on a single platform. The engine power levels are between 85 and 160 kW; their emissions comply with the respective regional requirements. With over 20% increased tread, around 30% increased space, and more storage compartments, the Easy Drive cabs have gone under significant development.
The compactors in the HC series are “digital-ready” and are ready to be used in a wide range of tools, including the Smart Doc app. In addition to the variants that were hitherto available on the market, in the future, Hamm says there will also be CR machines with specially reinforced equipment for use on rocky ground and on difficult terrain.
Hamm is also presenting a world premiere at this year’s event with the HP 100i articulated pneumatic-tire roller. The base weight of the roller is 13,228 lbs (6 t) and can be increased to up to 22,046 lbs (10 t) using different ballast kits. With five wheels on the front axle and four wheels on the rear axle, the new pneumatic-tire roller has a working width of 68” (1725 mm).
