Throughout its 60+ years BOMAG has never been a company to stand still. At Hillhead BOMAG will exhibit both new and improved models across its range of light and heavy milling, paving and compaction equipment. BOMAG’s theme for the exhibition will be ‘digitisation’ explaining its technology, including Continuous Compaction Control, which saves time and money and increase quality assurance. More here!

Visitors to stand S1 will be able to engage in social media activities and learn more about BOMAG’s aftermarket support and end-user finance products.

In June BOMAG will showcase its range of compaction equipment and a selection of the increasingly important and wide range of milling and paving equipment. In the UK BOMAG’s milling, paving, ground stabilisation and heavy compaction products are sold and supported by a team of specialists working for BOMAG (GB) with access to the latest telematic information, digital diagnostic equipment, service tools and genuine parts.

BOMAG will exhibit a large 34.5 tonne BM 2000/75 milling machine and a compact 8 tonne BF 300P wheeled paver. The BM 2200/75, introduced in 2017, is powered by a powerful 440kW Deutz 8-cylinder engine. The 34.5 tonne BM 2000 has a working width of 2,000mm and is designed for work on large jobs. This BOMAG is a powerful production machine designed and built for a tough life milling road and industrial surfaces. High performance and efficiency, makes this model suitable for repair work or the complete removal of motorway or major road surfaces. With a standard width of 2000mm and a maximum milling depth of 320mm, large areas can be quickly removed in one pass. Every detail on the quick-change milling drum and unique BMS 15 tool holder system contributes to the above average productivity of BOMAG mills. The 8 tonne BF 300P wheeled paver has a 4.8m3 hopper and a maximum screed width of 5m. Powered by a 55.4kW Stage 3A Kubota engine and incorporating Ecomode, an integrated and automatic engine management system which matches engine power to demand, the BF 300 is designed and built for inner-city work on confined sites where its compact dimensions, manoeuvrability and excellent all-round visibility make it ideal.

Hillhead will be used to launch a new compact single drum roller to the UK market, the BW 124-5. This new generation machine can be supplied with either a smooth or a padfoot drum to best suit the customer’s application. Powered by a 33kW Deutz Tier 4 engine, with twin-pump hydraulics, the BW 124 has outstanding compaction power with a choice of two amplitudes, excellent gradeability and strong off-road performance. An optional dozer blade is available, and the BW 124 can also be equipped with the fully integrated Economizer system which provides the operator with a display of real-time compaction progress.

The popular BMP 8500 trench-compactor, which will appear alongside the BW 124, now has an improved Economizer system fitted as standard. The LED real-time compaction display now gives a more accurate reading in ‘half’ steps allowing users to obtain consistent compaction over large areas. The real-time LED display now shows compaction progress from 1/2 to 10 i.e. 20 steps of progression.

For contractors working on asphalt BOMAG has improvements for its market leading products. BOMAG sell a wide range of heavy tandem rollers for asphalt in a choice of configurations and with a variety of exciter systems (standard vibration, Tango oscillating vibration and Asphalt Manager with ‘directed vibration’) for different applications.

At Hillhead BOMAG will display two heavy tandems, a BW 154 AD-5 with split drums and a pivot steer BW 174 AP-4F. Both machines are safe, productive and versatile and they can work with modern materials including Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA), Hot Rolled Asphalt (HRA) and binder.

The 8.3 tonne (CECE operating weight) BW 154 AD-5 is ideal for urban use with 1,680mm wide split-drums, front and rear, and an articulated chassis which gives excellent manoeuvrability and a perfect surface finish even in tight turns and in roundabouts. The BW 154 AD-5 uses an ultra-reliable, economical, low emission Tier 4 final 55.4 kW 4-cylinder Kubota engine which is controlled by the integrated BOMAG ECOMODE engine management system. This automatically matches engine power to demand reducing fuel consumption by up to 30%. A spacious cab and intuitive controls assist safety and productivity on busy and compact urban sites. With automatic vibration control of 2 amplitudes and 2 frequencies optimal compaction is achieved regardless of the material being rolled, the working temperature or the application on thin or thick layers.

The BW 154 is available with the optional TELEMATIC POWER system which allows remote monitoring and management of the machine. BOMAG TELEMATIC is available on iOS, Android and web applications making it both convenient and versatile to use. The advanced POWER system offers the following functions which help users optimise their fleet and control costs:

  • Location tracking 24×7
  • Geo-Fence (a warning is triggered if the machine leaves a defined area)
  • Monitoring of standing time
  • Recording of operating hours
  • Service and maintenance planning
  • Total and average fuel consumption over time
  • Utilisation of capacity and efficiency
  • Idle running control
  • Alarm warnings i.e. low oil pressure, high water temperature etc.

The second Hillhead asphalt machine, the BW 174 AP-4F, is a large 9.2 tonne pivot steer tandem designed and built for a tough life working on large-scale new road builds or on maintenance of major roads and motorways.

The BW 174 is powered by an economical, low emission Tier 4 final 74.4 kW 4-cylinder Deutz engine with integrated ECOMODE engine management to keep fuel consumption in check. The generous cab space ensures relaxed working, even on long shifts. The powerful heater, or optional air conditioning, keep things comfortable and windscreens free of condensation. There is even a separate location for a cool bag and a 12V socket. The BW 174 comes with two individually switchable amplitudes per drum which is perfect for a machine which will have to tackle a wide range of applications.

The optional TELEMATIC POWER system allows remote monitoring and management of this productive machine. BOMAG now supports The Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) interface which provides 19 data points which can be read by third party telematic systems, for added flexibility and convenience. The standard also defines a format which enables OEM’s to deliver fault code information as part of the data feed.
