KEWANEE (Ill.) Completing their offering of reversible plate compactors, BOMAG introduces the BPR100/80D. The largest of BOMAG’s reversible plates, the BPR100/80D is a powerful compactor designed for large projects. It offers contractors and rental customers a faster working speed and greater compaction force, as well as advanced productivity and control features.
Ideal for work on granular, cohesive and mixed soils, the BPR100/80D features a 14.75-horsepower Hatz air-cooled diesel engine. Its new vibratory exciter design provides a maximum working speed of 88.6 feet per minute, and a gradeability of 35 percent.
Maximum vibration frequency is 3,360 vibrations per minute, and centrifugal force is 22,500 pounds. Both vibration frequency and centrifugal force are easily adjusted using the throttle control. Heavy-duty wear-resistant base plates feature reinforced edges and have a working width of 25 inches.
It also comes standard with BOMAG’s exclusive Economizer system. By detecting soil stiffness, the Economizer system provides an accurate overview of soil compaction status. It allows jobs to be completed more quickly, with up to 25 percent fewer passes, saving fuel costs and reducing machine wear. The Economizer system also helps the operator achieve optimum compaction by avoiding over-compaction and identifying and eliminating soft spots.
The BPR100/80D features a Tip Control system that allows the operator to easily change direction. This provides outstanding operator comfort and ease of handling.
Like all of BOMAG’s reversible plate compactors, the BPR100/80D features a high-strength, grain-refined steel hood that helps protect the engine and all internal components from job-site and transportation damage. To simplify maintenance, the hood is hinged and swings forward to reveal the entire engine. Large, integral service ports permit access to the most common maintenance points.
For maximum safety and comfort, the BPR100/80D features a steering rod with built-in vibration buffers, which help reduce the amount of vibration transferred to the operator. Additionally, the steering rod is height adjustable to accommodate any operator and is lockable in both the transport and working position.
It also features a fully protected V-belt, lifetime lubricated vibration bearings, reinforced self-adjusting centrifugal clutch, foldable multi-function lifting point and bumper protection.
