Bomag showcased its new BW90AD-5 tandem vibratory roller at The Rental Show in New Orleans last week. Designed for more efficient operation, the new roller features intuitive controls and all-around visibility. Highly maneuverable and fuel-efficient, the roller is suited for small and medium asphalt compaction projects.

The newly developed driver’s platform is highlighted by a multifunctional travel lever and the Smart Drive steering wheel, which has a smaller diameter that provides comfortable space for the operator, as well as a clear view of all controls. The dashboard contains modern circular instrumentation with warning signals, hour meter and fuel level indicator. An adjustable operator seat also provides added comfort and an excellent view of the drums.

Powered by a 20.2-hpKubota diesel engine that features ECOMODE to automatically idle the engine to conserve fuel during inactivity, the BW90AD-5 has a working width of 35.4 inches and delivers 3,822 pounds of centrifugal force at a frequency of 4,200 vpm. The unit is also equipped with Bomag’s Intelligent Vibration Control to achieve consistent compaction quality.
