BOMAG has announced its new BW100AD-4 tandem vibratory roller, featuring a Tier 4 interim 32.6-horsepower Kubota diesel engine, up to 8,350 pounds of centrifugal force and a max frequency of 4,200 vibrations per minute.
Designed to efficiently perform asphalt and base compaction, road shoulder work, asphalt patch repair and more, the roller’s features include a standard crab walk that allows the roller’s rear drum to be offset by 1.6 inches in either direction, providing maneuverability around obstructions on the jobsite.
The roller’s SmartDrive steering wheel has a small diameter that ensures maximum visibility of all indicator controls, and a laterally sliding seat gives the operator a view of the drums.
Flexible scrapers and a maintenance-free bolt-on articulating and oscillating joint simplify maintenance. For uniform coverage, a 58.1-gallon water tank and pressurized spray system that features filtered nozzles are provided.
Safety features include ROPS with safety belts, a backup alarm and an emergency stop button. The roller’s engine cover and dashboard can be locked to prevent vandalism.
