The Hamm HD 148i VV Tandem Roller is a machine made for the Chinese market.

Accordingly it is modelled in 1:35 scale to reflect the usual scale for Chinese models of construction machines.


The model comes in an Hamm branded box.  Inside the box, the model is contained within expanded polystyrene trays which are clipped together. 

The review model had no missing parts or defects.

Some information about the real machine is printed on the box but it is in Chinese. 


The rollers are metal with a slight grooved finish and there are twin plastic scrapers on each drum. 

Hydraulic lines are modelled on the drum supports and there are high quality casting details and graphics. There are lights at each end. The water tanks for the roller drums are plastic and have a good matt finish and include realistic filler caps.

Under the cab there are doors to the engine area on both sides and these are detailed with metal textured steps.  

The cab has some very good detailing with a beacon light and mirrors.  Inside, the control console and seat look good.


The drums are very free rolling. 

Steering across the pivot point achieves a good angle, and also a slight offset if required.

Both cab doors open to approximately a right angle to the cab.

The engine covers on both sides open to reveal engine details but these are unpainted. 

The operator's seat and console can be rotated.


This model is well made.  It has a high metal content with plastic used appropriately.

The paintwork and graphics are excellent.


It is understood to be good value at a typical Chinese selling price.


This is another  excellent Hamm roller model by Sunraise Classic Models.  It has nice functionality and pleasing details.
