On the new HD 14 VV compactor from Hamm, both the front and rear drums vibrate, individually or in tandem, in automatic or manual modes. The drums measure 54.3 inches wide but offer a working width of 56.3 inches when offset. The HD 14 VV weighs 9,248 pounds static and puts out 14,625 pounds of vibratory impact force in high amplitude and 9,000 pounds in low amplitude both front and rear. A 40-horsepower Hatz diesel engine drives the unit and hydrostatic, articulated steering helps maneuverability. The sloped front hood adds visibility and the ergonomic driver’s platform keeps you comfortable over the course of a day. Three braking systems and an emergency stop button increase safety on and around the machine.
