Comment on this model.

Hamm is part of the Wirtgen Group of companies. 

The Hamm DV+ 90i VV Tandem Roller is an all-wheel-steered tandem roller with two vibratory drums.   It has an operating weight of 9.4 tonnes.


It comes in a small Hamm branded box in which the model is held within two expanded polystyrene trays, and wrapped in soft paper.

There is some information about the real machine printed on the box.

The model is complete out of the box with no assembly to do.


Underneath, the detail is simple.  The roller drums are metal and have nice smooth surfaces.  Each has two scrapers, and there are bolt heads detailed on the support frames.

The body casting has textured steps leading to the cab.

The cab is excellent as inside it has a console with tiny legible graphics.  Outside, the cab has a delicate metal frame and a two-tone roof with beacon light.

The nose at each end is a nice casting with filler cabs modelled for the water tanks.  The delicate mirrors are plastic and the modern Wirtgen and Hamm graphics are sharp.  The lights have plastic lenses. 


The drums roll nicely and each drum steers independently and achieves a good angle.  One drum also oscillates a little.

The plastic cab doors open widely, and inside the cab the operator's seat can be rotated for the appropriate direction of travel.


This is a high quality model with a high metal content. 

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


It is moderate value.


Overall this is a pleasant model.  It is relatively heavy, with very good detailing and nice functionality.


The model first appeared for the BAUMA 2016 exhibition.
