BOMAG Tandem Rollers
New generation under 1.8 tonnes tandems go on sale

It celebrated its premiere as a prototype at bauma 2010 and is now being launched onto the market:  New light BOMAG tandem rollers in the under 1.8 tonnes class and actually the 5th generation of the BW 80 series - a continuation of the most successful series of rollers in the world. A total of six models are now available with operating weights of 1.5 tonnes – 1.7 tonnes featuring a new design and powerful and proven KUBOTA engines. The result is a series created by customers for customers: users and hirers were involved at an early stage in the development process to ensure that the new models offer everything today's customers want.

The new BOMAG  “5” series rollers are designed for new construction and repairs on medium and small jobs. They feature outstanding manoeuvrability and  “all-round visibility unequalled in this class" - original comments from a user who drove a machine early on. In particular, the deep-set engine bonnet and set-back frame guarantee excellent visibility to the front and the bottom rim of the drum  - without the driver having to shift his sitting position. Despite their compact dimensions, all models offer good operator space and leg room.

The BOMAG clear-sided solution

Alongside the traditional models BW 80 AD-5, BW 90 AD-5 and BW 100 ADM-5, BOMAG offers the BW100 ACM-5 combination roller with a 100 cm wide drum, and two clear-sided rollers with drum widths of either 90 or 100 cm. These two  units, models BW 90 SC-5 and BW 100 SC-5 have drums offset by 60 mm  giving working widths of 96 and 106 cm. The drums are suspended or connected to the frame on one side only – so the driver can carry out compaction work on the left and right sides, close up to a wall or kerb and then steer away afterwards with no damage. Additional compaction work such as with vibratory plates is not required.

Comfort and overview for the driver

The generous driver’s platform with its clear dashboard layout will quickly impress drivers. Alongside the new “Smart Drive” steering wheel and a multifunctional control lever, the platform is part of a unit that offers outstanding ergonomic benefits.  It gives easy access to the driver’s platform, comfortable seating and intuitive operation of the roller. The basis is the adjustable driver’s seat including matching armrests. There is a large storage compartment under the seat for tools and, for example, operating instructions. All operating controls are clearly arranged with durable rotary switches on the dashboard. It also contains modern circular instrumentation with warning signals, an operating hour counter, as well as a diesel fuel level display.

High compaction performance plus lower fuel consumption

Reliability is a key operating demand. All models use tried-and-tested technologies such as the exciter system: proven over many years, and the efficient high capacity hydraulic system. With the economic Kubota engine and ECO mode, which is ideal for smaller compaction jobs, fuel consumption is also  kept to the minimum.
The rollers feature individual vibration switches as standard, as well as Intelligent Vibration Control (IVC) - automatically preventing vibration when stationary or compaction at excessive speeds. This guarantees consistent compaction quality.
Alongside compaction performance, the sprinkler system is a  key component.  A sophisticated membrane pump, a water-saving concept with triple filtering, wind-protected nozzles and automatic sprinkler control ensure that the drums receive sufficient water even in strong winds or when the roller is on an incline.

Transport and Service

Tandem rollers are often commissioned directly on site. Generously proportioned and easy-access lashing rings and a practical single lifting point, plus integrated towing hook, are valued aids for the site personnel and reduce unloading times.
Another key feature is the hood, which can be damaged during transport or on site. On the new generation the hood is made from high impact-resistant plastic, for high stability.
Highly practical and well thought out: These are the central electrics located in the steering column which can be easily opened, for example, to access the fuses. All models, are of course maintenance free - even including the articulated joint.

A wide range of useful options

Battery cut-off switch, a double driving lever, an edge cutter, drum edge lighting, folding ROPS and many other options are available to round off this winning package.
