Centerpoint articulated steering on the New BOMAG BW11RH-5 offers full-width compaction coverage in turns.
The new BOMAG BW11RH-5 pneumatic tire roller boasts 35° centerpoint articulated steering, delivering a short 10-ft inside turn radius. This allows the front and rear tires to maintain tracking in turns, offering full width compaction in tight, winding curves to reduce the number of passes to reach desired densities. The five front tires and four rear tires of the BW11RH-5 deliver a compaction width of 68 in with zero frame overhang, making this versatile roller the perfect machine for intermediate compaction of highways, urban development roads, parking lots, driveways and chip-and-seal applications.
Functional machine design of the new BW11RH-5 integrates ballast compartments into the frame. These strategically placed compartments lower machine center of gravity for excellent stability and safe operation.
This new BOMAG pneumatic tire roller is powered by a liquid-cooled, 74-hp Kubota Tier 4 Final engine, meeting today’s most stringent emission standards. The roller’s hydrostatic transmission offers three travel speeds to match the speed of the paving train: 0-8 mph in low range; 0-10.5 mph in mid-range; and 0-15.5 mph in high.
The BW11RH-5 comes standard with a 140-gal tank. An optional pressurized spray system, complete with cocoa mats at each tire for even lubrication, is available to efficiently make use of available water and extend intervals between tank refills. When working in cooler ambient temperatures or windy conditions, optional heat shields help to maintain high tire operating temperatures, preventing asphalt pickup that could reduce mat surface quality.
