Première: BOMAG launches its fifth generation single drum rollers

Boppard, 19.01.2016: BOMAG showed its focus on quality with its new single drum roller range in the 11 to 26 tonnes weight class during the BOMAG Innovation Day events. The 12 tonne category is a new addition to the earthworks portfolio in this product segment. This new generation of single drum rollers from the global market leader features impressive efficiency, eco-friendliness and straightforward operation and all models meet the Tier IV emissions standard.

The latest engine technology and intelligent power control make these models true trendsetters in efficiency and eco-friendliness. The Ecomode function has been shown to reduce fuel consumption by up to 30%, whilst delivering the same compaction performance. The optional Ecostop function not only saves on fuel, but also reduces engine wear. These intelligent fuel-saving features pay for themselves with lower operating costs. In addition they increase potential resale values, because these rollers are in use for fewer actual operating hours.

Thanks to the latest generation engines, pollutant emissions have been dramatically cut. This is due to the highly efficient engine design giving with lower fuel consumption, plus the optimised exhaust after-treatment.

Compaction at the turn of a switch

Models BW 213, 219 and 226 feature Variocontrol (BVC), the well-known compaction system from BOMAG with automatic compaction control. A clever, new operating concept makes it even easier for the operator to make full use of Variocontrol: just one rotary switch integrated into the arm of the seat is needed for all settings. In manual mode, the operator chooses the required amplitude; in automatic mode, he can specify EVIB values and Variocontrol takes over control of the amplitude. Thanks to the clear icons on the control panel, the operator sees immediately whether he is in manual or automatic compaction mode, and provides a clear indication when maximum compaction has been reached.

Variocontrol automatically ensures that energy is constantly transmitted at the optimum level and that the operator has his work fully under control. This prevents over-compaction and minimises the number of passes required, which in turn increases productivity and the quality of compaction performance.

Everything in sight and under control

Ease of operation and working ergonomics were given special attention by the engineers at BOMAG during development of these new generation models. The dashboard features an clearer and more user friendly design. The compact steering wheel and the steering column with individual adjustment provide a perfect view of the drum. The operator's cab is generously proportioned with large windows. This means the operator always sees what is going on around the machine, which in turn ensures significantly higher levels of safety.

A new loading function on the speed switch is particularly practical, making loading of the roller even safer and easier.


A special highlight of the high gradeability DN versions is their pump system, which incorporates two pumps supplying two engines. This makes the machines far more stable in operation on steep slopes. The excellent gradeability of over 60% is constantly attainable when moving forwards and backwards.

Easy servicing

Long servicing intervals, excellent access to maintenance points, and many maintenance-free components ensure high availability of the machine whilst at the same time keeping the costs down.
