Boppard, 6 April 2021: BOMAG’s walk-behind rollers are an unparalleled success story. It all began in 1957 with the legendary BW 60. Now, in its 64th year, BOMAG is launching two new walk-behind rollers: The BW 65 and BW 65 D have been available since 1 April 2021.
In keeping with the motto “under way without delay”, the new BOMAG BW 65 and BW 65 D walk-behind rollers are now equipped with an electric starter as standard. Their close drum spacing furthermore ensures that they are particularly light and manoeuvrable in use. All operating points are easily within the user's reach.
The rollers are available as petrol models with Stage V/CARB Phase 3 emission stage or diesel models with Stage V. The switchable vibration system can be adapted flexibly to various surfaces, base layers and thin asphalt layers with two amplitudes and delivers excellent, high compaction performance. This makes the rollers a reliable partner for a wide range of applications. Thanks to the machine’s minimal lateral overhang, the operator can compact quickly and precisely right up to the edge.
The standard operating hours counter leads to significant maintenance cost savings. With reliable information on the total operating time, users now know exactly when maintenance is due and needn’t carry it out any sooner than necessary, e.g. changing the exciter oil. This cuts costs and increases the machine's service life while protecting the environment at the same time. The high transport speed for travel to and from the construction site is also worth mentioning: At up to 6 km/h, construction sites can now be reached even more efficiently. The well-thought-out machine concept also enables quick and clean maintenance, e.g. through the spray pipe with quick release coupling or four lateral openings for scraper cleaning.
BOMAG's new walk-behind vibratory rollers also have a lot to offer in terms of work safety. Particularly noteworthy are the reversing protection and the second parking brake for stability on slopes. The clever exhaust routing away from the operator and building walls ensures the lowest possible emission levels. The optional warning light provides a further plus in terms of safety on the construction site.
