BOMAG Introduces Four-Cycle Engine Vibratory Tamper with Lighter-Weight Design

Compaction America, Inc.
2000 Kentville Rd.
Kewanee, IL, 61443 1714

Press release date: September 18, 2002

KEWANEE, Ill. - BOMAG Light Equipment is introducing a new, lighter-weight tamper built with its proven four-cycle engine technology.

Powered by the 3.3-horsepower, four-cycle Honda GX100 engine, the new BT60/4 tamper weighs 137 pounds, nearly 10-percent lighter than other BOMAG four-cycle tamper models. With a maximum travel speed of 66 feet per minute and a range of 540 to 708 impacts per minute, the unit delivers up to 3,037 pounds of impact force to a compaction depth of 21.6 inches.

Combining a well-balanced design with a well-protected, integrated air intake and a low center of gravity, the BT60/4 requires little effort to guide. The tamping foot is constructed of high-strength honeycomb polyethylene that absorbs shock, ensures stability and provides smooth operation.

For operator safety and comfort, the BT60/4 tamper offers a patented "anti-vibration handle." The "anti-vibration handle" minimizes the amount of vibration transferred to the operator and increases the number of hours an operator can safely use the tamper.

Designed for compaction of cohesive, semi-cohesive and granular soils, typical applications for the BT60/4 include highway patching, compaction of backfill around foundations and footings, reinstatement in trenching applications, and utility and cable backfill jobs. Due to lower noise and emissions produced by the four-cycle engine, the new unit is ideally suited for residential areas and confined trench work.

The BT60/4 has a standard operating width of 11 inches. A 9-inch interchangeable shoe is also available as optional equipment.

BOMAG four-cycle engine tampers offer the operating convenience of a four-cycle engine while maintaining the high stroke and impact force of a two-cycle model. The units can be transported in a horizontal position without concern for oil contamination of the cylinder, muffler, carburetor or air filter.
