SUSTAINABILITY.

RECYCLABLE MATERIALS

  • In the refuse compactor market, it is important to present sustainability positively and properly supported with facts for the tendering process. BOMAG selects raw materials with the highest recycling potential – BOMAG refuse compactors are over 92% recyclable

EFFICIENT DRIVE TECHNOLOGY

  • BOMAG refuse compactors use a high-pressure hydraulics system. The system has few components in the drive train, producing a high level of efficiency with low energy consumption. Speed-controlled radiator fans provide an adapted air flow to cool the engine saving approx. 5% in fuel.

LOW EMISSIONS

  • BOMAG has has long, practical experience with efficient systems through adopting emissions regulations early on. The intelligent BOMAG cooling system combined with the latest engine technology brings tangible benefits to users. All BOMAG refuse compactors are equipped with engines which comply with exhaust regulations. BOMAG continues to meet the challenges of modern day environmental protection whilst delivering impressive, powerful and efficient technology.

REDUCED POLLUTION FOR THE OPERATOR AND THE ENVIRONMENT

  • The outstanding cooling system allows BOMAG refuse compactors to work extremely quietly, providing the operator and surrounding area with a good working environment. Pollution caused by dust and gas is kept to a minimum by the cab filter system.

SHIFTING AND DISTRIBUTING REFUSE.

  • The basis for good compaction is the distribution of refuse into suitable layer thicknesses. For even distribution the operator requires precision machinery, high thrust forces and high traction. All standard with BOMAG refuse compactors! The joystick is easy and stress free which means good precision when working long shifts. The smooth hydrostatic drive converts the power of the water-cooled turbo diesel engine into high output power. The load limit control smoothly adjusts the travel speed automatically to the load for optimum utilisation of the power available.
  • The unique feature is the oscillating articulated joint which is designed to withstand the toughest loads and stresses of landfill site operation. The joint allows 15° oscillation and 40° (35° RS version) steering to either side between front and rear frames. The result is all wheels maintain ground contact for optimum compaction, safety and traction.

ALL-ROUND PERFORMANCE

DOZER BLADES.

  • – Dozer blade with grid attachment for a good all-round overview
    – Three rotatable cutting blades and two edge
    – Straight blade
    – Semi-U-blade for 10% more pushing performance

RS VERSION WITH HYDRAULIC LIFTING GEAR

  • – For universal use (transportation, handling and loading)

BUCKET FOR RS VERSIONS

  • – Robust bucket with grid attachment for good visibility
    – Available with a cutting edge or bucket with three-part teeth in quick change holders* (*Optional)

COMPACTION.

  • If material is evenly distributed the best compaction possible can be achieved – BOMAG’s core competence. Compaction significantly affects the life of any landfill site. With the high investments involved in landfill sites every additional m³ filled is money earned. BOMAG achieves optimum compaction with its wheel geometry, scraper beams and stable ground contact.

THE RIGHT TOOTH MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

BOMAG WHEELS WITH REPLACEMENT CAPS

  • Welded wheel bodies with inner taper on both sides for optimum stability
  • Specially shaped, polygonal compaction segments with attached replacement cap holders welded on to assist compaction
  • Equipped with high-quality, forged replacement caps for optimum refuse crushing and compaction
  • Precision mounting ensures the caps fit tightly and securely
  • Caps can be changed easily and quickly by ejecting the dowel pins
  • Optimised ejector tool available

BOMAG WHEELS EQUIPPED WITH PREMIUM TEETH, WHICH HAVE A WEAR WARRANTY OF 10,000 WORKING HOURS (PRORATED)

  • Welded wheel bodies with inner taper on both sides for optimum stability
  • Armouring welded at the wheel edges for extended service life in combination with the cable cutters
  • Specially shaped, polygonal compaction segments with attached compaction teeth are welded to assist compaction
  • Compaction teeth made of high wear-resistant composites, i.e. two materials cast in sequence for longer service life

ERGONOMICS AND EASE OF OPERATION.

  • BOMAG prevents driver fatigue with a flexibly mounted cab, an ergonomically designed workplace and low sound pressure level. There are optional extras available to make it easier for the operator to monitor the machine or for increased comfort and convenience.

  • BOMAG TELEMATIC will monitor and manage the entire fleet. Customers know at all times where the machines are, how they are being used and when the next service is due. Alarms are automatically generated; for example, when a machine
    leaves a defined construction site at an unscheduled time.
  • BOMAG TELEMATIC also allows fuel costs to be allocated in detail, and service work to be planned and documented. All the recorded data can be tracked.
    – Maintenance scheduling: The entire fleet at a glance. All services are centrally documented
    – Full fuel monitoring: BOMAG TELEMATIC provides precise information about actual fuel consumption.
    – Flexibility: BOMAG TELEMATIC is the solution for the entire fleet: machines from other manufacturers can be readily incorporated.
