New BOMAG Single-Direction Plate Compactors Feature Increased Frequency and Centrifugal Force

KEWANEE, Ill. -The new BOMAG BP25/48 and BP25/48D single-direction, vibratory plate compactors deliver 6,075 pounds of centrifugal force - an increase of up to 35-percent compared with previous models. At the same time, the new units offer a frequency of 5,400 vibrations per minute, an increase of 15 percent.

The BP25/48 is powered by a 5.5-horsepower Honda gasoline engine with recoil start and automatic low-oil shutdown. The BP25/48D features a low-emission, 4-horsepower Hatz diesel engine with recoil start and automatic decompression.

Rugged, wear-resistant base plates on both the BP25/48 and BP25/48D help to maximize productivity and effectiveness. A high lip at the edge of the base plates adds strength, decreases the amount of material pick-up and allows operators to turn the units while compacting asphalt without scuffing the work surface.

A high-density plastic belt guard fully protects the V-belt from damage, extending belt life. A heavy-duty tubular frame prevents engine damage caused by rollover or striking job-site obstacles. Transport around and between job sites is simplified with a frame-integrated lifting point. The vibration-isolated steering handle enhances operator comfort and detaches for easy transport. An optional water sprinkler system may be added to either model for asphalt patching applications.

The system can be easily installed or removed, eliminating the need to transport the entire plate for water refills. Other optional accessories include transport wheels and a vulcolan mat for use on pavers or patio block.
