bomag_bw100adJuly 24, 2013, Kewanee, Ill. – Featuring a Tier 4i compliant engine, the Bomag BW100AD-4 tandem vibratory
roller is ideal for several applications, including asphalt and base
compaction, road shoulder work, parking lots, and asphalt patch repair.

Powered by a Tier 4i,
32.6-horsepower, water-cooled Kubota diesel engine, the BW100AD-4 delivers up
to 8,350 pounds of centrifugal force per drum and a maximum frequency of 4,200
vibrations per minute. A standard crab walk allows the roller's rear drum to be
offset by 1.6 inches in either direction, allowing excellent maneuverability
around site obstructions.

A new Smart Drive steering
wheel has a smaller diameter, providing operator comfort and a clear view of
all indicator controls. A laterally sliding seat offers an excellent view of
the drums. The suspended operator's platform is also equipped with a fuel level
indicator and hour meter.

A maintenance-free, bolt on
articulating and oscillating joint and flexible scrapers for each drum
simplifies service requirements for the roller. A 58.1-gallon water tank and
pressurized spray system feature filtered nozzles and windscreen protection for
uniform coverage.

Standard safety features on
the BW100AD-4 include ROPS with safety belts, back-up alarm, and emergency stop
button. Additionally, the roller's engine cover and dashboard are lockable to
protect against vandalism. Front and rear working lights are optional.
