Comment on this model.

The Hamm HD+ 110 Roller is a machine with an operating weight of a little over 10 tonnes.  A variety of versions are manufactured and the one modelled here is the VO version with an oscillatory drum and enclosed cab.

Among the features of the real machine are the hydrostatic drive, crab steering and rotating and moving operator's seat.  It has won a number of design awards.

This version of the model is in the colours of Kibag, a Swiss construction company.

Packaging

The model comes in a colourful Hamm branded box which has a few specification details about the real machine, and the model is wrapped in polythene and packed between expanded polystyrene trays.  There were no defects or missing parts on the review model.

There is no assembly to do as the model is complete out of the box and there is no information describing its features.

Detail

The rollers are metal with a smooth finish and the scrapers fit closely and have the securing bolts detailed.  Lines run to the drum centres and there are finely detailed edge pressers and cutters on one side of the model.  Perhaps the only things missing are the work lights at the drum edges and the top sprinkler bars.

Under the cab there are doors to the engine area on both sides and these are excellently detailed with Kibag graphics.  The engine inside is highly detailed too.  Very good graphics are also applied to the front and rear.  The bolt heads are highlighted throughout. 

The water tanks include realistic filler caps, and the fuel tank filler cap is modelled also.

The cab continues the excellent detailing with fine gauge grab rails and convincing seals to the window edges.  Inside, the control console is decorated to resemble the dashboard, and a tiny graphic indicates the first aid box.

Features

The drums roll smoothly.  The steering can be set by using the cylinders across the pivot connection to achieve an angle of around 30, and the front roller can also be offset to allow an overlapping compaction area.

The two doors to the engine area can be opened and they even include clips so that they close shut tightly.

The cab doors open fully to a wide angle of 180°.

The operator's seat rotates in either direction, and also slides side-to-side to allow a better viewing position.

Quality

This is an excellent quality model, and the Kibag livery is applied very well.

Price

The model is very good value for money.

Overall

This Hamm Roller set a very high standard when it was introduced and this one maintains it although small details such as the grilles on the lights are not present on this version of the model.

Footnotes

This model was first shown in Hamm colours at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2011.  The Kibag version appeared in December 2012 together with versions in Implenia and Vinci colours.
