bomag_-35_millingmachineDecember 18, 2013, Kewanee, Ill. – BOMAG expands its cold
milling product range by offering the new rear rotor design BM -35 Series. Advances
in operator comfort and precision controls set the standard for these rear
rotor mills, and an innovative exclusive cutter system delivers first rate
milling performance.

This is the second generation of BOMAG’s inventive
breakthrough milling models. Its prior BM 500/600 series has quickly become a
market success in the trimmer mill category by giving contractors unsurpassed
comfort levels and exclusive quick-change rotors. Now this next generation of
commercial mills has arrived with 3 new models: The BM1000/35, BM1200/35, and
BM1300/35.

BOMAG worked with experienced operators throughout the -35
design conception. A goal was set to eradicate time-wasting factors which
disrupt the milling process and that ultimately cost contractors time and money.
Highest priority was given to maximizing the cutting tool life, while
minimizing tool replacement labor to support an efficient and productive
jobsite. BOMAG developed its unique BMS 15 interchangeable holder system to
accomplish these requirements. This new cutting system utilizes a single bolt
for holder retention and requires a low tightening torque of 75 ft. lb.
Additionally, the low front face position increases efficiency and therefore
overall milling power, while allowing desirable full tooth rotation. A special
tempered steel material offers a significantly longer service life versus
conventional cutting systems and also provides BOMAG’s traditional premium
quality.

Operators also called for simplicity and ease of operation.
The -35 models incorporate a logical operating layout, easy intuitive controls,
and low noise levels. The vibration isolated operator's stand features a
comfortable swivel seat design which allows all work to be done while seated.
The control ergonomics are complemented by straightforward switches, levers and
clear read-out displays.

Both the BM600/15 and BM1000/35 models will be on display at
the 2014 CONEXPO show in Las Vegas. Stop in to visit with BOMAG’s product
