BOMAG Introduces New Generation of Powerful and Durable Vibratory Tampers
Press release date: February 18, 2014
KEWANEE, Ill. – BOMAG’s new line of vibratory tampers includes a wider range of models that allows users to select a machine that best suits the requirements of a given job. The tampers combine low operating weights with superior compaction performance to optimize both productivity and ease of operation in applications such as trench construction, utility and cable backfill compaction, landscaping, and small repair jobs.
Boasting the highest power in their respective weight classes, the BT60 weighs 128 pounds and delivers up to 3,372 pounds of impact force, while the BT65 weighs 150 pounds and produces 3,822 pounds of impact force. The BVT65 weighs 143 pounds and delivers 3,597 pounds of impact force. The BT60 is ideal for time-intensive use in confined spaces, the BT65 for jobs with the highest compaction demands, and the BVT65 for occasional use in typical applications. Each model is powered by an efficient 4-cycle Honda engine with recoil starter and offers a maximum travel speed of 66 feet per minute.
Ruggedly built for demanding customer needs and long service life, the tampers include a cover and guards for all-around engine protection, dual air and fuel filter systems (single air filter for the BVT65), and an hour meter and tachometer with integrated service indicator (optional on BVT65). The units also feature a low oil alert system, easy access fuel and engine shutdown switch, and splash oil lubrication. A high-strength polyethylene tamping shoe with steel wear plate and a corrosion-free plastic fuel tank further contribute to enhanced durability.
For operator safety and comfort, each tamper is equipped with a vibration-isolated steering handle that minimizes the vibration levels transferred to the operator, thereby increasing the number of hours an operator can safely use the machine. For added ergonomics, the handle is also height adjustable.
The BT60 offers a standard operating width of 9 inches, while the BT65 and BVT65 each have a width of 11 inches. Four interchangeable shoe sizes (6, 9, 11 and 13 inches) are available as optional equipment. Additionally, optional 15-inch-tall tamper shoe extensions with 4- and 6-inch working widths are available.
