Refuse compaction has been one of the core areas of expertise of Bomag for many years, alongside asphalt and soil compaction.
What the Mercedes/MTU tier 4 final engine, the twin pump drive system and the Bomag compaction concept can deliver was fully demonstrated by the compactor driver. Over steep accumulations of refuse and from a range of different approach angles, the guests tested the power and handling of this unit. Bomag engineers have focused on performance and ease of service and maintenance, resulting in significant reductions in downtime.
Spreading loading or compacting – the high versatility of this model produced a clear vote of confidence. As one observer said, "It is remarkable that this machine handles so sensitively with such a fast response time".
And according to another convinced customer "the clever design of this machine was a welcome surprise for me. Despite the large hood, as a driver I can see everything and also have a fantastic rear view. For the daily machine checks it is just excellent that all components are so easily accessible."
As well as the performance of the machine, the overall efficiency was also very clear. The engine and the controlled cooling system give, depending on operating conditions, a fuel reduction of 12%", explained Detlev Wickert, Bomag Product Manager for the development of refuse compactors. Then, this machine produces the same high compaction pressure per square centimetre as machines in higher weight classes. Compaction is not just a question of static weight.
BOMAG markets three models fitted either with a twin pump or a quad pump. With their performance of 300 to 600 tonnes per layer, the machines are ideal for small to medium-sized landfill sites. This is where the new BOMAG refuse compactors will create a new performance class and offer a serious alternative to competitor models in higher weight classes.
