At this year’s Executive Hire Show, Wirtgen Limited will be presenting two models from this its successful CompactLine  – the HD 8 VV and the HD 12 VV. With a total of 16 models, this makes the CompactLine the most extensive model series available in the sub 4.5 t weight category.


Four models from the CompactLine are available with oscillation, the company’s environmentally friendly and efficient compaction technology. The models with weights ranging from 2.5 to 4.4 t have working widths from 1 – 1.4 m.

The New Compactline will be on display for visitors at the 2017 EHS

A major advantage of oscillation is that it achieves a very fast increase in compaction. The
benefits are particularly noticeable for processes such as the compaction of thin asphalt layers. Another advantage is a much lower level of vibrations with oscillatory rollers than with vibratory rollers, making them ideal for compaction tasks in inner city locations where they can compact systematically without vibration damage to buildings or pipework. Oscillation optimises compaction at joints with existing road surfaces, for example during minor repairs.

One important task is the compaction of water bound path surfaces, for example in parks or for cycle paths. Further applications for these rollers include the environmentally friendly compaction of small asphalt areas or the bedding-in of paving stones.

Cabin, chip spreaders and more

HAMM has expanded the areas of application for the CompactLine with many useful options for the whole model series, including a cabin, chip spreader and drum lighting.

The cabin has full-height windows without intrusive pillars to provide perfect visibility and can be fitted with extras such as a heater or radio.

The chip spreader comes in two sizes to provide the perfect complement to rollers over 2.5t in weight. The linear chip spreaders have step-less regulation of the spread rate and are controlled from the driver’s seat. A specially developed diffusion grill is responsible for a remarkably even distribution pattern.

All CompactLine models over 2.5t in weight can include LED drum lighting, an important safety feature to enable the driver to see where they are compacting.

Additional options available for CompactLine rollers in all weight classes are LED working lights and fuel saving by automatic engine stop system.

NEW… HAMM H CompactLine for Earthworks

HAMM has expanded its programme for earth-moving with the H 5i (4.8t) and H 7i (6.3t) H Series CompactLine compactors. They are ideally suited for construction companies as well as for machine rental because they are extremely simple to operate..

HAMM H CompactLine for Earthworks - new at the EHS 2017

Their concept thoroughly satisfies the criteria for small earth-moving compactors in every respect. The wheels are driven by wheel motors enabling HAMM to dispense with a rear axle. Hydraulic anti-slip control ensures continuous traction. This special design feature forms the basis for the exceptionally good climbing ability and generous ground clearance of both models.

Short climbers

The newly designed drive delivers yet another advantage: the two compactors are remarkably short. This applies especially to the H 7i. Measuring approximately 4.40 m, it is the world’s shortest compactor in this weight class. Moreover, the combination with the 3-point centre pivot assembly and very short wheel base results in exceptional driving and handling characteristics – a real practical advantage when compacting on confined construction sites.

Ease of operation

Construction and rental companies are both impressed by the clear operating concept of the H CompactLine. The instrument panel bears visual and functional similarities to HAMM’s HD CompactLine of tandem rollers. The arrangement of the steering wheel allows a clear view of and easy access to the instrument panel.

Driver safety and comfort

Like all other HAMM rollers, the small compactors also stand out from the competition for their wide field of view and/or large window areas and outstanding visibility. A small, yet important detail: the rear-view mirrors on the H 5i and H 7i can be conveniently adjusted and cleaned from inside the cab through the divided window.  The easy access, wide opening windows, the laterally adjustable seat and the optional air conditioning creates a comfortable work environment. Safety has not been neglected either of course; all H CompactLine models are available with ROPS cab, a ROPS frame with or without protective roof and with FOPS.

Clean engine power

A Kubota engine (55.4 kW, complying with Tier 4 / Stage IIIB) in the small compactors powers the drives and power packs. In ECO mode, which delivers sufficient power for most tasks despite engine speed restriction, the compactors operate especially environment-friendly and efficiently. A new feature is the optional automatic engine stop system. It reduces diesel consumption by automatically shutting off the engine in certain circumstances, e.g. when the machine is stationary for an extended period. At the same time, the system takes into account the requirements of the exhaust gas purification with diesel particulate filter (DPF).

The Executive Hire Show takes place on 8th & 9th February 2017 at its established Ricoh arena home.  Registration is now open – and it’s FREE!
