Hamm HD 14 VV compactorWith Hamm asphalt compactors, VV stands for “Vibration Front, Vibration Rear,” and the new 4.6-ton HD 14 VV offers operators the choice of running vibration in the front drum only, rear drum only, in both drums, or no vibration at all. The HD 14 VV has a working width of 56.3 inches when offset, and a drum width of 54.3 inches. Introduced by Wirtgen America’s Hamm Compaction Division, the new compact asphalt compactor is driven by a four-cylinder, turbocharged, water-cooled Hatz 4W35T engine SAE-rated at 40 horsepower. The machine’s tapered front end provides optimal forward visibility, and the three-point articulation joint provides driving comfort.
