BOMAG announces its BPR35/60 series reversible plate compactors, which provide contractors and rental customers with faster working speeds and greater compaction forces for work on granular and mixed soils.

Three models are available in the series. The BPR35/60 features a 4.8-horsepower Honda air-cooled gasoline engine, while the BPR35/60D and BPR35/60D/E are equipped with 4.2-horsepower Hatz air-cooled diesel engines. Each compactor feature a vibratory exciter design for increased working speed and improved gradeability on all types of soil. All three models deliver 7,868 pounds of centrifugal force.

Maximum vibration frequency for each unit is 4,800 vibrations per minute. Both vibration frequency and centrifugal force are easily adjusted using the throttle control. Heavy-duty wear-resistant base plates feature reinforced edges and have a working width of 23.6 inches.

The BPR35/60 series features a high-strength, grain-refined steel hood that helps protect the engine and all internal components from jobsite and transportation damage. To simplify maintenance, the hood is hinged and swings forward to reveal the entire engine. Large, integral service ports permit access to the most common maintenance points. The compactors also feature a fully protected V-belt, lifetime lubricated vibration bearings, reinforced self-adjusting centrifugal clutch, foldable multi-function lifting point and bumper protection.

The gasoline-powered BPR35/60 also features a maintenance-free transistor ignition, large-volume dry air filter with cyclone-type precleaner, and automatic shutdown at low oil level. The diesel-powered models come with semi-automatic decompression for easier starting, and an electric starter is also standard on the BPR35/60D/E.

For maximum safety and comfort, the units feature a steering rod with built-in vibration buffers, which help reduce the amount of vibration transferred to the operator. Additionally, the steering rod is height adjustable to accommodate any operator and is lockable in both the transport and working position.

Available options include transport wheels, a service kit, and an optional Vulcolan mat that prevents scuffing when the reversible plate compactors are used on paving block.
