BOMAG's BM 1500/65 large planer sets new standards in the 650 hp class – even more manoeuvrable, cost-effective, productive and particularly easy to operate.
The cold planer's clever design offers the operator excellent all-round visibility. A clear view of the milling edge to the front enables extremely precise milling in the track. Its slim tail improves rear visibility and hence working safety.
The BM 1500/65's sleek design results in a turning circle of only 1.7 m, making the planer highly manoeuvrable. Milling in tight bends or roundabouts is no problem with the BM 1500/65.
With a milling width of 1.5 m and a CE weight of 27 t, the BM 1500/65 achieves outstanding productivity, especially when complete construction is involved. BOMAG's operating concept focuses on short navigation steps and only a few submenus.
BOMAG's clever cutting technology combined with the wear-optimised BMS 15L exchange holder system can save up to 20% in fuel and significantly extend the cutting tools' service life.
The large planer has a vibration-insulated operator station. It includes an additional cushioned standing surface for the driver. The result: comfortable and fatigue-free working. In addition, the operator’s platform can be moved sideways steplessly by up to 200 mm.
640 hp engine power with Stage V and TIER4f dual-certification – the perfect match of engine power and milling speed coupled with the BMS 15 L exchange holder system make the BM 1500/65 the most cost-effective planer in the light 650 hp class.
All service-relevant points are easily accessible via the engine hood, the driver’s stand and the large service flaps. Quick and uncomplicated access to the engine service points is possible from both above and below.
The planer's water tank has a capacity of 3,250 l – sufficient reserve for long working intervals. Its split spray bar optimises water use, thus conserving valuable resources.
The BM 1500/65 large planer can be optionally fitted with an additional auxiliary motor. This assists the machine operator when servicing the milling drum in day-to-day operation. However, it can also operate other hydraulic functions. This means that in the event of a breakdown of the main engine, the BM 1500/65 can still be removed from a job site without the need for expensive heavy equipment.
With a CECEweight of 27 t and a retractable conveyor belt that is then 600 mm shorter, the BM 1500/65 large planer can be loaded with ease. The planer, truck and trailer then have a total weight of less than 44 t.
In the driver’s stand, the machine operator is supported by the newly developed, optionally available, operating concept BOMAG Easy Milling and a large camera display.
BOMAG Dual Filtration prevents dust or rust from clogging the spray system and nozzles. The filter can be easily cleaned. To prevent frost damage, the system can simply be blown out with compressed air when it is cold.
The innovative ION DUST SHIELD from BOMAG further improves the performance of the already powerful dust extraction system. Harmful fine dust with a particle size < 10 μm can be additionally reduced by up to 80%. This has been confirmed by IGF and INRS.
The 130° swivel angle combined with the smallest milling radius in the 650 hp class makes it easier to navigate and load the trucks – even in small roundabouts and tight bends.
The adjustable belt speed aids full loading of the trough.
The slim front section of the large planer allows the machine operator an unobstructed view of the cutting edge, the side plate, the track to be milled and the danger zone around the conveyor belt during operation. The flat rear design ensures greater safety when manoeuvring.

Asphalt milling is a method for removing specified layers of asphalt road pavements.
Our machines contain both power and performance. To deliver maximum productivity we invest heavily in perfecting our milling drums, holder systems and cutting tools.
On planers, the milling depth is set using hydraulic cylinders. When entering the cut, the machine operator is supported by an assistance system on BOMAG planers. The rear of the machine follows the front. The system regulates the height of the rear drives. This makes the operator's work easier.
Particularly important on the construction site and when milling: The machine operator must always have the decisive parameters in view and be able to intervene quickly at any time. All the important data is displayed clearly and easy to read on a 7" full-colour display. With the new generation of BOMAG planers, changing settings or selecting sensors is never more than three clicks away.
This adds more cutting tools. Due to the high density of the cutting tools, fine milling creates a very fine surface texture and a low thickness up to 40 mm / 1.57 inch. Fine milling drums are used to increase the skid resistance of smooth road surfaces which have been “polished” by traffic. They can at the same time remove light ruts and uneven areas. In addition, these drums can be used to prepare sites for laying thin layers, to remove road markings and for fine milling of floor surfaces inside buildings.
The BMS 15 L holder system is slimmer than other systems. The effect is a lower resistance which reduces fuel consumption and improves the advance travel rate.
By using the Ion Dust Shield, the fine particulate pollution produced during milling can be reduced by more than 80%. Unlike conventional dust extraction systems, the fine particulate matter is not simply extracted in the working area and blown out again on the conveyor belt, but bound by means of intelligent technology. This causes the fine particulate matter to clump permanently into coarse particles which can then be transported away with the milled material.
Cutting power per tool increases and pulverised material fragments are larger. Because of the reduced crushing effect in the milled material, energy is saved which can lead to a faster travel speed or lower fuel consumption. At the same time, the cutter has lower wear because the faster advance rate means the impact time of the cutting tools is reduced and they generate less heat. POWER DRUMS not only offer milling performance which is up to 30% higher than standard milling drums, they also provide lower wear and reduced fuel consumption. The line spacing of the cutters on the POWER DRUM is relatively wide and the surface structure created by milling is rough and coarse. POWER DRUMS are used to plane hard materials and for complete removal of asphalt pavements.
They can be used for multiple applications on a variety of milling jobs. The standard milling drum can be used for complete removal of whole road surfaces as well as for planing individual layers. The applications for standard planers extend from the removal of small sections of road (patches) to major surfacing work and road repairs, including milling duct trenches. The milled surface is an ideal base for laying new asphalt layers.
