Present perfect and future ready

The Hamm HCseries offers advanced engine technology and best compaction for earthworks.Since August2021, Hamm has supplied new compactor models from the HC series to the Indianmarket. The machines, weighing 11t, are available with or without a drum drive.All machines fulfil the requirements of the CEV Stage IV.

At 90 kW (121HP), they bring plenty of power to the construction site whilst consumingconsiderably less fuel than their predecessors. Furthermore, the new compactorsfeature a modern, convenient operating platform, excellent driving and handlingproperties, as well as a highly efficient ECO mode that can reduce fuel consumptionby up to 20 per cent.

New premium compactors for India

The HC 119iand HC 119i D compactors are available in an operating weight of 11,190 kgor 11,240 kg (all weights include the protective roof in each case). All of themodels are manufactured at the Wirtgen Group plant in Pune, Maharashtra. Theyare completely homologised and comply with the Indian laws and specificationsin all details, from the engine and the lighting system right through to theirdimensions.

Optimum compaction performance

With a drumwidth of 2,140 mm and a large static linear load, the compactors can be useduniversally in inner-city projects, for compaction on motorways, airports, andother large areas. The powerful Cummins engine ensures that maximum compactionforce is always available, and vibration works immediately once the nominalfrequency is activated.

For the driver,the acceleration of the vibrating unit is imperceptible. The automaticvibration system ensures that the vibration is shut off as soon as the compactorsstop moving. This prevents over-compaction and guarantees high-qualitysurfaces.

Clear operation, comfortable workstation

From theoperator's platform on the new compactors, the driver has an excellent view ofthe construction site. Thanks to the design of the engine hood and the frontvehicle, the driver can always keep the drum – as well as the construction site– in view. The roof, which is included as standard, protects the driver fromthe sun and rain.

The operation isself-explanatory and does not require any special language skills. As standard,a USB socket, 12 V socket, and a bottle holder are included on board. Thanks tothis equipment and other details, the operator platform on the rollers is acomfortable place to work.

Bright work lightingwith durable LED lights rounds off the high-quality and environmentallyfriendly overall picture.

Future-proof engine with a highly efficient ECO mode

All models aredriven by a robust, water-cooled 4-cylinder engine in accordance with CEV StageIV. The 90 kW (121 HP) power unit features two fuel filters as standard. Toclean the exhaust gas, the machines are equipped with SCR and DOC.

Duringoperation, the operator can choose between three preset engine speeds. If thedriver selects the average speed, the machine operates in ECO mode. This modereduces fuel consumption by up to 20 per cent as well as lowering CO2and noise emissions.

Yet, in spite ofthis, frequency and centrifugal force as well as full compaction power continueto be maintained. This is enabled thanks to the large-sized hydrauliccomponents and smart control system. Furthermore, the compactors are able to beused at outside temperatures of up to 53°C thanks to the newly designed airduct and large radiator.

Great driving and handling properties thanks to thethree-point articulation

The three-pointarticulation in the new compactors guarantees outstanding directionalstability, impressive stability when negotiating curves, and a high level ofsafety against overturning. This means that the compactors deliver outstandingmanoeuvrability and excellent compaction, even on uneven terrain.

The compactorsare driven by the rear axle. The ‘D model’ (HC 119i D) also have a drumdrive that helps it to scale gradients of up to 53 per cent with confidence.

Numerous options

As optionalcomponents for ICS systems, Hamm offers a speedometer for comprehensivecompaction inspection, and the Hamm Compaction Meter (HCM) for continuousmeasurement of the load-bearing capacity. In addition, the HC 119i Dcan also be equipped with padfoot shells. Further options are available forlighting and the operator platform.

Convenient maintenance

The Hammcompactors from the HC series also prove to be convenient when it comes to thedaily check and regular maintenance. All access points can be easily accessedas the engine hood can be opened wide in the direction of the operatorplatform.

Proof of the pudding

BIPL compliments Ammann Apollo for a workhorse – the ARS 121 Soil Compactor.

Do Ammann compactors really eliminate passes? Avinash Bhartia, Director of Bhartia Infra Projects Ltd. (BIPL) certainly believes so. Writing to the Ammann Apollo team, he states that BIPL has been able to achieve the compaction in fewer passes, “which is resulting in overall savings in diese   READ MORE...
