Bomag [2] has introduced the BW138AC-5 combination roller, designed for asphalt compaction and steep grade applications.

The 54-inch-wide roller and features a traditional vibratory steel drum in the front and four smooth pneumatic tires at the rear, creating a combination design.

A Tier 4i 4-cylinder Kubota diesel engine powers the 4.5-ton machine.

The BW138AC-5 has a large 35.4-inch-diameter drum that delivers a low rolling resistance, smooth rear pneumatic tires that ensure even compaction and tires with high traction to allow for performance on inclined surfaces.

The machine also includes a pressure water sprinkler system with a high-capacity 76-gallon water tank; filtered spray nozzles and an interval sprinkler timer, solid windscreen; flexible, spring-actuated scrapers; and a separate 13-gallon tank that holds emulsion liquids.

The suspended, vibration-isolated operator’s platform has comfort- and visibility-enhancing features such as a fully adjustable and laterally sliding seat, multifunctional dual travel levers and the Smart Drive steering wheel.

The foldable roll-over protection structure (ROPS) comes standard with a number of safety features, including a seat belt, back-up alarm, emergency stop button and front and rear working lights for night operation. The roller’s engine hood and instrument panel can be locked to prevent vandalism.

Maintenance [3] is made easy, since no daily grease points are required.

An optional Bomag Economizer [4] is also available to provide a real-time reading of soil stiffness during the compaction process.
