BOMAG’s BW141AD-5 and BW151AD-5 tandem vibratory rollers feature an innovative frame design for clear visibility and Tier 4 engines for increased fuel efficiency. The new rollers provide high VPM performance on a variety of asphalt compaction jobs, ranging from commercial sites and parking lots to highways.
A newly designed operator’s platform features a spacious working area that provides ample room and comfort, while still offering optimal all-around views of the roller drums, asphalt mat and surrounding areas. The station’s adjustable, multi-position seat rotates and slides laterally to both side positions, and a travel lever with integrated switches, the steering wheel, and other operating controls are arranged logically and within easy reach.
The new rollers are each powered by Tier 4 compliant, 73.2-horsepower Kubota water-cooled diesel engines. Offering 59-inch and 66-inch working widths, respectively, the BW141AD-5 and BW151AD-5 each deliver up to 17,760 pounds of centrifugal force. The rollers feature ECOMODE, a system that aids the operator in conserving fuel by controlling the engine speed in relation to load, reducing fuel consumption by up to 30-percent.
The intelligent design of the rollers also features innovative component placement, such as a large water tank below the operator’s station and the engine located in the rear frame, contributing to high maneuverability and reduced noise during operation. A pressurized water spray system includes a second pump and triple filters to ensure reliable drum sprinkling. The large engine hood provides easy access from either side of the machine.
A crab-steer feature allows operators to offset the rear drum of the rollers up to 6.7 inches in either direction. Other standard features include automatic vibration control, speedometer, V-belt protection, halogen working lights, indicator and hazard lights, back-up alarm, master battery disconnect switch, and tool compartments.
Optional features include a mat temperature display, ROPS cabin with heating or air conditioning, BOMAG Telematics, drum edge lighting and integrated edge cutter for the rear drum.
