Nice Hamm badge on the front.

Hamm specialises in rollers and the HD 14 VV is a member of their compact line of tandem rollers.  The real machine has a drum width of 1380mm and weighs around 5 tonnes.


The model is contained within two polystyrene trays enclosed in a small branded box.  The box has a few technical details about the real roller. 

The review model was missing a joystick control which appeared to be a factory quality issue.

There is no assembly required as the model is complete.


This is a small model, and there is little space for detail underneath because of the fixing screws.  The drums are metal and smooth.

At the front the Hamm nameplate is modelled well as is the grille, and there are painted lights.  The graphics on the sides are good quality and include tiny warning notices such as lifting point positions.

The operator's area has a diamond plate surfacing with the Hamm name included, and the main controls are represented.  The console has the emergency button and some very small graphics for the screen display.  The orange handrail is plastic with a very good colour match.

The roll-over bar is modelled to represent perforations in the crossbar and includes the optional beacon light of the original machine.


The rollers turn well and the model rolls well when pushed.

The roller steers by rotation at the pivot point in the centre and there was also a degree of twist available at the pivot on the review model.  The crab steering mode of the original machine is not facilitated.


Although this is a fairly simple model it is made to a good standard in keeping with other Hamm models by NZG.  The graphics are very good.


It is fair value.


This is another good Hamm model with some good details.  It is recommended.


The model first appeared in the NZG catalogue in 2008.

Excellent operator's station, although a joystick appears to be missing on the review model.
