Comment on this model.

Hamm is part of the Wirtgen Group of companies.  The Hamm 3412 HT P is a padfoot vibratory compactor with an operating weight of around 12 tonnes.  It is used for earthworks compaction.

This version is the 'Agri Compactor' version with double rear tyres and amended paint and graphics, and the nomenclature hints at agricultural applications.


It comes in a specially branded Hamm branded box (which is unusual for a limited edition) and it has a few technical details about the real machine.  It is held within two expanded polystyrene trays, and wrapped in soft paper. 

There were no defects or missing parts on the review model.

The model is delivered in a single rear tyre configuration.  Extra wheels and a long axle are provided together with an instruction sheet to enable conversion to a double tyre arrangement.


Underneath, the detail is simple with the steering hydraulic rams visible.  The metal wheels have nice rubber treaded tyres.

The body casting is good with the grilles delineated and the graphics are sharp with some being very small.

The cab has a thin metal structure with metal grab rails.  Inside the  seat and controls and are modelled well.  Silvered steps lead to the cab and there is a fuel filler pipe.

The metal drum has a very good padfoot pattern, and the frame is well detailed and looks convincing.


The rubber tyres roll well and the drum turns smoothly.

The pivoted steering works well achieving an angle close to the 35º that the real machine achieves.

The model can be configured with either a single or double tyred rear axle.


This is a smaller model which is heavy with little plastic used. 

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


It is reasonable value.


This is an unusual variant of a typical padfoort compactor and is an attractive looking heavy model.  It is well up to NZG's usual quality standards and is recommended.


The model first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2013 as a limited edition of 300 models.
