Press release date: July 24, 2013
KEWANEE, Ill. — Featuring a Tier 4i compliant engine and enhanced operator’s station with smart steering wheel, the BOMAG BW100AD-4 tandem vibratory roller delivers efficient operation on a wide variety of commercial and municipal applications, including asphalt and base compaction, road shoulder work, parking lots, and asphalt patch repair.
Powered by a Tier 4i, 32.6-horsepower, water-cooled Kubota diesel engine, the BW100AD-4 delivers up to 8,350 pounds of centrifugal force per drum and a maximum frequency of 4,200 vibrations per minute. A standard crab walk allows the roller’s rear drum to be offset by 1.6 inches in either direction, thereby allowing excellent maneuverability around site obstructions.
A new Smart Drive steering wheel has a smaller diameter, providing maximum operator comfort and a clear view of all indicator controls. A laterally sliding seat offers an excellent view of the drums. The suspended operator’s platform is also equipped with a fuel level indicator and hour meter.
Service requirements for the roller are simplified by a maintenance-free, bolt-on articulating and oscillating joint and flexible scrapers for each drum. A 58.1-gallon water tank and pressurized spray system feature filtered nozzles and windscreen protection for uniform coverage.
Standard safety features on the BW100AD-4 include ROPS with safety belts, back-up alarm, and emergency stop button. Additionally, the roller’s engine cover and dashboard are lockable to protect against vandalism. Front and rear working lights are optional.
