The German Hamm AG will be displayed at the first "bc India" presenting a product premiere. The compacting experts from the Wirtgen Group will exhibits their new type "311" compactor in Mumbai. The powerful machine, specially designed in Germany in cooperation with Indian engineers for the Indian market, is now produced at the new factory of the Wirtgen Group near Pune.
The compactor with 11 t operating weight impresses with numerous technical highlights. The 3 point pendulum articulated joint is particularly note-worthy. It gives the machine excellent driving and steering characteristics, an unsurpassed directional stability and offers the best driving comfort. At all times, a modern display informs the driver about the machine condition and guarantees simple operation. The construction site and all important points of the machine are always in the compactor driver's view from the platform.
Hamm, one of the largest compactor manufacturers in the world, has optimally motorised the new compactor with a high-quality water cooled Cummins unit (performance: 76 kW). The engine is easily accessible from the appealingly designed carbon fibre bonnet – a significant advantage over the heavy bonnets usually found in India until now. The relevant service points are all easy to access for regular checks.
The new machine has been completely homologised and complies with all aspects of the Indian laws and guidelines from the engine to the lighting system and the dimensions.
The vibrating compactor is available in three variants: in the standard version with rear-axle drive as the "311" model, the "311D" model with additional driven drums and the "311P" model with padfoot drums.
