Bomag has redesigned its 47-inch single-drum vibratory rollers and given them more standard features popular in the rental industry and among cost-conscious contractors. The series consists of two models — the BW124DH-40 smooth drum roller and the BW124PDH-40 padfoot roller. The compact design and an optional leveling blade of the BW124-40 series adds versatility to the series. The BW124-40 series is also designed to be easy to service and maintain. The vertically opening hood provides easy access to the engine and all components, and locks to prevent damage and vandalism. Hydraulic hoses are also protected. Recessed drum frame bolts permit operation near obstacles, and the dual-drum scrapers keep the drums clear of dirt and debris. The vibratory drum mechanism and spring-applied hydraulically released brakes are virtually maintenance free as well, the company says.
