Updated Jul 26, 2013

BOMAG BW100AD-4 tandem roller 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.

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.
