Contractors World - Intermat Preview I
Design features include a large, fully glazed pano-
ramic cab giving the driver a clear view to the drum
edges and edge pressing device at all times.
An innovative feature is the glazed cab floor pro-
vides an unobstructed view of the roller drum.
A large tank capacity permits continuous com-
paction for extended work sessions.
Water can be topped-up quickly and safely un-
der pressure from ground level (standard equip-
ment). Gravimetric water filling via the inlet locat-
ed at the top is another option.
Both models are equipped with latest engines.
With its 75 kW power plant, the DV+ 90i exceeds
the requirements of Tier 4i / EU IIIB, and the DV+ 70i with
its 56 kW engine even satisfies the Tier 4f / EU IV values.
Both power plants filter the soot particles using a
diesel particulate filter (DPF) as part of the exhaust gas
The mid-mounted engine together with the two-part
water tank ensures an even, constant weight distribution.
Combined with the split drums and pivot steering, they en-
able the production of high quality asphalt paving, even in
New compact rollers for
Hamm AG is expanding its earthworks range with two com-
pact rollers - the H 5i and H 7i, with 4.5 t. and 8 t overall
weight respectively and features that will interest construc-
tion companies and plant hirers.
They are extremely easy to operate and offer ergonomical-
ly ideal working positions. They have a remarkable climb-
ing ability of 50~60% and generous ground clearance - up
to 350 mm depending on model.
Hamm is keen to point out that these are not scaled
down version of the large models. They are the first in a
totally new series designed and developed from scratch.
One important innovation is to be found in the traction
drive: the wheels are no longer driven via a rear axle, but
via wheel motors. It is this concept that gives the compac-
tors their climbing capacity and much greater ground clear-
ance compared to their predecessors.
The new drive concept also brings another benefit. The
two compactors are remarkably short. The H 7i, is just 4.40
m, making it the shortest machine in this weight class in
A new feature is the optional Motor Stop System. It re-
duces diesel consumption by automatically switching off
the engine under certain conditions,
Many variants and options
With a Kubota engine (output 55.4 kW, Tier 4f / EU IV
compliant) the smaller compactors in the H series are well
equipped for compacting surfaces of all kinds.
When it comes to the compaction systems, there is a
choice between a smooth drum, padfoot drum and the
newly designed two-part padfoot segments. A levelling
blade can also be added. A VIO drum, capable of compact-
ing with either vibration or oscillation, will also be available
for the H 7i.
