Sales of the BM 500/15 compact milling machine to start - plus BOMAG milling drums for 500 mm class milling machines

At this year's SAMOTER, construction equipment manufacturer BOMAG will start selling its new BM 500/15 compact planer and BOMAG milling drums for other makes of 500 mm class milling machines.

A highlight on stand D6-L6 in hall 7b will be the start of sales of the BM 500/15 compact milling machine first shown as a prototype at bauma 2010. The new model has everything you would expect from BOMAG: new technology, durability, a long service life, the best milling quality and intelligent fine detail. Particularly striking is the new roller technology and a completely new operating concept. The BM 500/15 is the first compact milling machine that is truly focussed on the operator. Work is controlled from a comfortable sitting position, without health risks due to wrong posture or long-term stress caused by vibration. This is because the workplace, including all operating controls, is insulated from vibration. All functions can be accessed from a sitting position and a 45 degree swivel seat provides the optimum view, whether to the loading truck or the milled edge. In addition is the self-explanatory operating concept, operating aids, optional weather protection roof, generous storage space and much, much more.

New milling drum technology
The result of three years of research is this wide range of quick-change milling drums for the BM 500/15. These BOMAG milling drums feature innovative geometry. The teeth are arranged to ensure homogeneous, low vibration cutting. Due to the shell thickness, the milling drum also behaves like a flywheel transferring significantly fewer vibrations to the machine than a conventional drum. The special geometry of the edge cutter generates a smooth edge with a minimum of damage. New diagonal cutters protect the shell tube when working around bends and prevent abrasion to the bracket at the edges. These cutter supports developed by BOMAG are fitted in precisely milled pockets which transfer power better, and give longer service life than standard cutter supports with their precise positioning. The cutters can be knocked out from the rear quickly and easily. For the contractor, this means: longer service life for the machine, less ancillary work, repair costs and greater availability. For this reason, BOMAG is offering its new milling drums not just for the BM 500/15, but also for compact milling machines from other manufacturers in the 500 mm class. The 500 mm LA15 and POWER DRUM 500 mm LA 20 milling drum models will be available from spring onwards.
