Fields of application

Refuse compaction – ensures the optimal distribution and compaction of refuse to increase the lifetime of a landfill site.

1 / 1

Distribution and compaction of all landfill waste materials including industrial, domestic and special waste types. Available in blade version “RB ” or shovel version “RS”.


The basis for landfill site profitability is optimum utilisation of capacity which means the best possible compaction of all waste materials. BOMAG refuse compactors achieve this requirement because they have been specifically designed to work under the extreme conditions found on landfill sites.

BOMAG’s compaction concept with scrapers, polygon rings and toothed wheels ensures continuously clean working. Only clean tools can guarantee consistent compaction and traction. The articulating and oscillating center joint ensures the optimum load distribution and traction on all four wheels. Thanks to the wheel offset, the entire surface is covered. Gaps left by the wheels are closed completely on the second pass.

Cooling on demand means adapting the airflow to required cooling performance. This results fuel savings up to 6%. The reversing function is reducing the cleaning efforts and thereby maximizing the availability.
