The BOMAG BW120SL-5 tandem vibratory roller features Intelligent Vibration Control to increase compaction efficiency. With IVC, the exciter system guarantees consistent compaction of the material with reliable results achieved in minimal passes. Adding the optional BOMAG Economizer to the roller removes the guess work out of compaction and eliminates over-compaction by measuring and displaying material stiffness via a simple-to-read LED light gauge on the dash.
The flexible machine allows the operator to choose between vibration for both drums, front drum only or rear drum only to tailor vibration needs to jobsite conditions. The roller’s powerful drum drive motors deliver up to 40% gradeability for reliable performance when compacting soil and base material.
The BW120SL-5 roller’s overall low-maintenance design increases uptime and production in the field. No grease-daily points reduce daily maintenance time and costs, while a wide-opening hood offers unimpeded access to the engine and central electronics panel. Easy accessibility to the water pump, spray nozzles and central tank water drain allows service personnel to quickly maintain the water system. A centralized lifting point enables the roller to be quickly loaded and unloaded on a trailer, while a foldable ROPS structure reduces machine transport height.
The BOMAG BW120SL-5 roller’s pressurized water spray system and large 43.6-gal water tank provide long operating times between refills. The operator can select from five different water spray timing intervals to further extend operating intervals between refilling. The spray nozzles are shielded to ensure uniform drum coverage, especially when operating in windy conditions.
