As the first compact planers of this type, the BM 500/15 and BM 600/15 combine innovative milling technology based on new rotor geometry with unrivalled operator comfort. A key feature is the fully vibration-insulated operator's platform that, for the first time, enables work to be performed from an ergonomic seated position. An experienced planer driver can operate this machine after only five minutes of instruction. An operating concept that is easy to understand and self-explanatory. Furthermore, the user-friendly control panel offers comprehensive operating aids such as:
• water saving mode
• load limit control
• traction control
The driver can thus fully concentrate on the job without fatigue. This simple concept prevents operating errors, which benefits the quality and speed of work conducted.

A planer must mill accurately. BOMAG milling drums feature innovative geometry. The tools are optimally arranged to ensure uniform, low vibration cutting. Due to the shell thickness, the milling drum acts like a flywheel transferring far fewer vibrations to the machine than a conventional drum. This increases planer durability.

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.
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.
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.
