Easy Drive from HAMM: Intuitive operating concept for all rollers

One operating concept for all roller types: Easy Drive is available for the HD+ series articulated tandem rollers, the DV+ series pivot-steered tandem rollers, the H series compactors and now the GRW 280i pneumatic tyre roller as well.


Modern construction machines are high-tech units whose engineering enables more functions to be carried out than ever before. Whether these are recognised and used by drivers however, is crucially dependent on the quality of the operating concept. So that the drivers of HAMM rollers can use all the functions to their full extent, the developers attach the utmost importance to simple, intuitive operation. No easy task, since the modern rollers are complex tools. Hamm has successfully carried off this balancing act with its Easy Drive operating concept. It was first realised in the DV+ series tandem rollers and then successively introduced in the HD+ series tandem roller and the H series compactors. Since 2018, pneumatic tyre rollers are also available with Easy Drive. Two rollers with this modern, ergonomically optimised and user-friendly operating concept are to be found at Nordbau 2018.
